Elementary Master Schedule
Figuring out which “special” an elementary school student is participating in during a school week is now just a matter of following the calendar and a short set of numbers.

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” for the next six weeks of 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.

Specials Calendar through Dec.5
 
The mission of Oakdale Elementary School is to ensure academic excellence and to serve
the unique needs of all learners.

Bill Randby Visits First Grade
First graders were mesmerized with cool science experiments that Bill Randy brought with him today.  He talked to the students about working hard in school and doing what you love when you grow up.  He helped ease their minds about scary storms and showed them cool experiments with water, fire, and heat.  The first graders had a wonderful time listening and participating in his presentation!

Slide Show
Oakdale Bowling
Students from Oakdale had a wonderful time hanging out with friends and bowling.  Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Oakdale at Maplewood Lanes on Saturday!

Box Tops, HyVee Receipts, and Labels for Education​
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!!!
Moving into First Grade
First graders got their second day
wiggles out with a fun movement activity!!!  
They were moving up and down and all around
working on teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Students and staff members of the Oakdale community enjoyed a great start to the 2014-2015 school year. Both new and old faces joined in welcoming students back into the classrooms. We look forward to working together with our students to help Oakdale have another fantastic school year!
