ATTENTION PARENTS!! IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOUR EMA (EMERGENCY MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION) BE FILLED OUT AND SENT BACK TO THE SCHOOL IMMEDIATELY!! IF YOU HAVE NOT YET FILLED OUT THE EMA FOR YOUR CHILD YOU COULD BE PUTTING YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH IN JEOPARDY. YOUR CHILD WILL ALSO NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND FIELD TRIPS WITH HIS/HER CLASS.

Oakdale Elementary would like to thank all of our parent organizations for their commitment, dedication, and energy toward providing a positive environment for our students and teachers. Devoting endless hours to volunteer work, including planning and organizing of events, we recognize the important role they play in helping our students reach their potential.

Through parent-teacher communication, parents are encouraged to become active participants in their students’ education. At Oakdale School we truly believe that a strong partnership with our parents builds the foundation for our students’ continued success. Volunteer opportunities include: Parent Workshop, Library, Tutoring, Book Fair, Enrichment Day, Recycling Challenge, Room Parenting, Track and Field Day and many others.

Please feel free to contact the school if you are willing to volunteer in any capacity. Every minute in the day of a child counts. If you only have an hour a day we would be happy to have you!

The Resource Center

This area provides parents with additional information, worksheets and links to help them work with their students to improve their performance in school. These materials have been provided by the Oakdale staff. If you have any questions concerning these materials please contact the school office.

I’m sure you’re all aware of the INFOhio Information Network for Ohio Schools but in case you are not, I thought I would mention it. It is a content rich, free resource to students, teachers, and parents in the state of Ohio. Students can access these resources at home using the username: learn, and password: infohio.
