Next Year 
It is hard to believe that it is time to start thinking about next year, but we are in the midst of looking at class lists. If you have concerns and have not visited with me, please contact me as soon as possible. You may call the school or email me at kaylynn.hamblin@psd201.org

Dress Code 
With warmer weather hopefully coming soon, I know it is tempting to wear flip flops and sandals to school. However, with PE and the playground, your children need to wear closed toes shoes. Also, please remember the dress code. Shoulders should be covered. Shorts and skirts need to not show any skin about mid-thigh. You can refer to your handbook or contact the school if you have questions regarding the dress code. 

PTO Corner 
The year is coming to a close and we want to thank everyone for all their help and volunteering at our many events. 
Be sure to send an appreciation to your child's teacher the week of May 6th.  
May 9th is our Walk-a-Thon. It starts at 4pm and will be held behind the Oakwood School. This year we are raising funds to give teachers the money to use for stem programs and electronics for classrooms. It's going to be a party! We have a huge bubble machine for the students to run through during the event. If you did not register before, come that day. The cost will be $5. 
Field Day is coming up on May 22nd for the Pioneer and the 23rd for the Oakwood. Look for sign up sheets to help on that day. This year we are asking all students to wear their walk-a-thon shirts for field day to kick off the end of the year. If you do not have a shirt, have no fear, we will be ordering more the first week of May. Your student can also wear yellow that day. 

Counselor Corner 
The next parent night will be held on Wednesday, May 8th. Topics will include, "How to Work Towards Teaching Self-Discipline and Increasing Resiliency in Students." The meeting will start at 7 pm in the Oakwood Cafeteria. Children can play in the gym and light refreshments will be served.
