A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
On behalf of the staff of Oakfield Elementary School, I welcome you to another successful school year and look forward to working with your child and your family. We are proud of our school and the many programs and opportunities available to our students. We strive for students to experience a well-rounded program that helps them harness their uniqueness and strengths.
Our theme for this school year is Oakfield Schools: Let your MIND-SET the Stage for Success! Our focus for our students this year is to develop a growth mindset, understanding that their intelligence depends on how much effort they are willing to apply. Believing in themselves can assist them with owning their own learning. Having a growth mindset will support them in their learning success this school year. Oakfield Elementary School’s curriculum is rigorous, relevant and provides the best possible opportunity to succeed academically and socially.
You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success. You take an active and crucial role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn. I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. Academics require practice, just like a piano, baseball, and dance.
You will find your child’s teachers are your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with them. I also look forward to working with you as partners in educating your children. It is an honor leading such an amazing group of students, staff, families and community members. I firmly believe that 2016 - 2017 school year will offer a lot of opportunities for celebrations for all members of this group as our “minds are set for success” once again!
Have a safe and successful school year.
