Dear Oakville Families,
Conferencing time is three weeks away. The students are working hard in all their classes to showcase their skills and interests. They will speak with pride about their accomplishments when you come in to conference with their teachers. Student engagement and family participation in education are key factors in making meaning at school.
Our Healthy Youth Survey will be administered on Tuesday. It will provide important results about the health of adolescents in our state. More information can be found here.
We only have a few fall home games left: one football game and two volleyball games. We hope you can join us in cheering on our athletes as they represent Acorn pride on the field and the court.
Please feel free to come onto campus, get a visitor badge, and look at the great work the students and staff are doing. Mr. Snyder (Shop) and Ms. Dean (Art), for example, have facilitated great projects with results to marvel at.
We are always looking for volunteers. We welcome all the help we can get, be it on the playground, in the cafeteria, or classrooms. Our elementary and secondary offices have volunteer registration forms.
Head lice continue to pose a concern. Please contact our office staff if you need help remedying a head lice situation with your student. It is nothing to be embarrassed about, but we will treat any and all requests with the utmost respect for privacy.
Our Math benchmarking for elementary grades will take place shortly. Please feel free to contact your student's teacher to find out more about benchmarking, progress monitoring, and assessment scores.
Until next week,
In educational partnership,
Caspar van Haalen
