Holiday Concert

Our Holiday Concert featuring 1st and 2nd graders will be Monday, November 18th at 6pm.  Students should arrive no later than 5:45pm.  This is a spiffy clothes event!  The concert will be held at Oshkosh West HS, Alberta Kimball Auditorium.  The concert will last about an hour.

Reminder:  If your child is sick from school the day of the concert they can NOT attend the concert.  All after school activities are considered part of the school day.  Students need to be in attendance for the full day to participate.  


Old Man Winter is Here

It’s hard to believe we already have snow on the ground.  At Oaklawn, students need to be dressed appropriately to play in the snow.  Snow pants and boots are required to play in the snow.  Please put your child’s name or initials in his/her coat, snow pants and boots.  One pair of black snow pants looks like all the others!  With over 400 kids here, that adds up more than 400 coats, 400 snow pants, 800 boots and 800 gloves.  Please label everything!!!


School Store

Our School store will be open on Thursdays and Fridays beginning in November.  The school store has a variety of fun, small items ranging from .25 to a few dollars.  On Thursdays, the school store will be open from 2:45-3pm.  On Fridays, the school store will be open from 7:25-7:40am.  Once the 7:40am bell rings, students are expected to go to class.


Start of the Day

We have seen an increase in the number of students who are tardy each morning.  School starts at 7:40am.  Please do everything possible to have your child here on time.  With winter here, please allow extra time for cleaning off cars, dealing w/frozen door locks and icy roads.  Our breakfast program starts at 7:10am every morning and is FREE to all students regardless of income.


Now Hiring

We are still in need of supervisors, especially at breakfast.  In the morning, we can use 1 person\welcoming students into the kitchen and processing their pin numbers at the computer.  At lunch, we can use 2 people processing pin numbers and 1 more person outside at recess.  Breakfast hours are 7:00-8:00am and lunch hours are 10:30am-12:45pm.  If you’d like an application, please stop in at the office.  


From our Nurse: Medication Policy

Medication will not be given at school unless it is absolutely necessary.  Any medications that requires FOUR DOSES OR MORE  a day can be given at school by a designated, trained staff member.  Before a child can be given any medication the parent MUST supply a form signed by the doctor.  These forms can be obtained from the school office or your doctor. If you have any questions about medication, please contact our school nurse, at 424-0170, ext. 4342.  

Cough drops are considered a medication at school.  You still need to fill out a medication form but it does NOT need to be signed by a doctor.  All cough drops need to be in the original bag and will be kept in nurse's office until the student needs one.  


Snack / Recess Milk

Please remeber to pay for your child's milk.  Breakfast and lunch are free but students are still charged $ .35 for recess milk.
