Oak Grove Elementary
Wow! Fall has arrived and we are busy learning, growing and having fun. We have had some amazing field trips already this year that include a Salmon watching trip, a simulation of an Oregon Trail adventure, a visit to the Oregon Gardens, an OSU Wood Magic trip and a few visits to the pumpkin patch! Our jog-a-thon was a huge success and it brought in funds for more of these wonderful field trips and adventures in learning. Thank you to all the families who helped with the Jog-a-Thon. We couldn’t do it without you!!!!
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.
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. Use the drop down from Quick Links, pull down to “volunteer 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 didn’t make it to a volunteer training this year 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.
