Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children. “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation. Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” that take place during the academic year for all elementary school. Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.
Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.
ATTENTION: The attached pdf has been corrected to reflect the Feb. 2 and 4 inclement weather school cancellation days.

This past many second graders got into the spirit of the 100th day of school while dressing as if they were 100 years old! It was truly a great celebration filled with many naps and rounds of bingo! Just teasing! We really celebrated with stories, songs, booklets, posters and a neat writing assignment that went with our pretend age for the day! It was entitled When I’m 100 years old!
did a wonderful job with their music concert.
Thank you for all your help and support
getting the students ready for their performance!

It's that time of year again!!! Please send Box Tops, HyVee Receipts, and Labels for Education to school with your children throughout the school year. NOW is the best time to bring in all the Box Tops you've collected over the summer!!!
The Hy-Vee receipt program runs from September 1st through December 31st. We collect all Hy-Vee receipts, from all departments of the store (grocery, pharmacy, floral, catering etc...). For every $200 in receipts, Oakdale gets $1.00. It may not sound like much, but Oakdale earned almost $500 last year!
Box Tops, HyVee Receipts, and Labels for Education are great ways to help raise money for Oakdale!!! Thank you for all your help and support!!!
