A few days ago, an email went home about Oak's Veterans' Day Assembly tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday, November 8. In order to honor veterans that have served in the US military that are associated with Oak families, we are asking that you use the link below to enter their first and last names.
These names will appear as a "visual scrolling tribute" during the assembly to remind the Oak community of their service. Additionally, please encourage your children to wear red, white, and blue on Wednesday.

Since there were several questions about Schoology last night, we thought we'd share this. It is a copy of the Schoology parent training presentation we gave a couple of years ago at Oak. There are a lot of great tips and trips so that you can get the most from Schoology!
It was great to get to meet so many of you last night! Here is our slideshow in case you were unable to attend.
We had a great day at Teamworks today! The purpose of the trip was for the students to get to know each other and work on developing their teamwork skills. The students were great! They worked together to solve challenging problems, and many pushed themselves outside their comfort zone by trying the outdoor climbing elements. Check out the photos from the trip!
Hello 8 Blue Community!
Please check here often for team news, curriculum updates, important information, and more! Today, students saw this short presentation below on 8 Blue with quotes about the team from last year's students. We welcome you to take a look and ask your son or daughter what 8 Blue is all about.
We are looking forward to a great year!
P.S. We are still in need of tissues! Please send in two boxes with your child if you haven't already done so. Thank you to everyone who sent in supplies already!
