Oak Grove Elementary
It has been a great start to the year out here at Oak Grove. I am learning so much and enjoying each and every day. Thank you for the opportunity to work with your children. There is so much support from everyone. I love the way our community, families and school work together to create a positive learning/working environment for all!
This year we get to celebrate our success of earning a Level 5 on the Oregon Department of Education State Report Card! This is the highest level assigned using the performance indicators of academic achievement and growth. This means that our students are not only scoring very well on the state OAKS assessment, but they are making significant growth from year to year. Way to go students, teachers and parents for helping to make this happen! I am very proud of you all.
Here are some upcoming events:
- Tuesday, September 23 PICTURE DAY!
- Friday, October 3 Jog-A-Thon
- Tuesday, October 14 Volunteer Training 6:30pm; and PTC meeting at 7 pm
Volunteers have an important role in making our school community a success and our students the best they can be. If you are interested in being a parent volunteer, please let us know. Even an hour or two a week can make a big difference! Every volunteer must become familiar with the district volunteer policies and must complete a criminal history verification application prior to engaging in any volunteer activity. Please go to http://www.albany.k12.or.us to complete the application. Select “Parents” tab, scroll down to Volunteer Application Form. If you completed the background check last year you do not need to do another one this year because your approval is good for two years. If you can’t make it to a volunteer training you can stop by the office for a packet of information and the volunteer waiver.
Let’s keep working together to make it a great year for all of us at Oak Grove Elementary School!
Responsibly involve and Enable success.
Schools, families & community: Working together to prepare students for our future.
