Our annual Harvest Drive will kick off November 4th. Flyers have been sent home. On Friday, November 22nd, we will host our community involvement event, The Story of Thanksgiving, our first play. We look forward to seeing you.
November is upon us and even though we have not enjoyed cool fall weather, we are still in the fall spirit at Oakridge! We all enjoyed our Fall Festival and we especially want to thank our wonderful PTA and all of the parent volunteers who really helped to make the day a success. Everyone had a great time.
Now that November is upon us, we are beginning our food collection for our Harvest Drive. We are hoping to provide food baskets to our needy families complete with a Thanksgiving turkey, which will be provided by the PTA. Our goal is to have each classroom sponsor a basket by bringing in enough non-perishable items such as stuffing, canned vegetables, rice, yams, gravy etc... To be able to provide a nice Thanksgiving Dinner. We are also collecting additional items to be able to assist each family with food for the remainder of the Thanksgiving week. Especially helpful are foods such as peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cereal, crackers, beef stew, tuna fish, beans, pasta, spaghetti sauce, canned fruits and vegetables.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Family Math Night at Publix! Parents and students had a great time applying their good math skills as they hunted around the grocery store to answer the challenging questions. Thanks also to the teachers from the Professional Learning Community on Math for all of their hard work that led to such a successful event.
I hope that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy quality time with family and friends as we reflect on all that we have to be thankful for at this special time of the year. Our whole Oakridge community is thankful to have the honor of working with your children.

Our school is participating in the SchoolMall program this year. This online program will help our school earn cash for technology without having students selling door-to-to-door, collecting money or delivering products.Read more...
