Now Hiring!

We are hiring 1 breakfast program supervisor and 1 lunch/recess supervisor.  Our breakfast team is here from 7am-8am and the lunch/recess team is here from 10:30-12:45pm.  If you are interested, please stop in at the office to pick up an application.

Free Breakfast Every Day!

Don't forget:  we offer FREE breakfast to all Oaklawn students!  Breakfast starts at 7:10am each day.  The menu varies daily, and offerings include cereal, fruit, juice, milk, muffins and toast.  We look forward to seeing your child at breakfast!

All School Field Trip

On January 31st our school will be attending a performance by the Mariachi Herencia De Mexico at the PAC in Appleton.  We will be leaving school at 11:00am and returning by 2:10pm.   This is a spiffy clothes, dress up occasion!

Permission slips were handed out to all students last week and are due back to your child's teacher by Jan. 27th.  Please indicate whether or not your child will be bringing a lunch from home or having a school lunch.  School lunch will NOT be what is listed on the lunch menu.  Since students will be eating in their classrooms and wearing spiffy clothes, we are going to have a picnic bag lunch instead.  Included will be:

  • Turkey Deli Sandwich
  • Fresh Veggie Sticks
  • Craisins
  • 100% Juice Box
  •  Whole Grain cheddar Crackers
  •  Mini Rice Krispie Treat
  •  Milk

 Synopsis:    "As student musicians from Chicago, nobody could have anticipated their first album “Nuestra Herencia” (Our Heritage) would receive a Latin GRAMMY nomination.  However, they have since attracted local and national news coverage, performance requests and have released their second album “Herencia De La Tierra Mia” (The Heritage of My Land), landing them in the number two spot on the Latin Billboard charts.  This performance will help students learn more about Mexican heritage and watch as their peers share their culture from the stage."

Update your contact information in IC!

In light of recent events, please take the time to ensure that all contact information is up to date in your parent portal account.  If an emergency arises, the district will send out all information via the methods you have marked in your account. 

Illness Monitoring

The District is working closely with the Winnebago County Health Department to monitor and reduce illnesses within our schools. It is the District’s policy to alert families when potential health concerns arise in our schools. At this time, this message is precautionary and is meant to help raise awareness regarding illness in our schools and ask families to take important precautions to limit the spread of germs and illness. As a reminder, when calling your child’s school to report their absence, please relay the symptoms they are having to the school office so that the District can continue to report to the health department accurately.

Community Events

Do you want to know about YMCA activities, sports camps, Girl/Boy Scouts, community events such as Halloween events provided by UW-Oshkosh, North High School, or local churches?  The school district advertises for many community events to keep you in the know. They are all posted here:
