From The Principal Dr. Schneider-Rediske sitting at her desk with four upper elementary students

August 27, 2018

Dear Parents:

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Oakbrook Elementary! We are looking forward to working with your child to allow them to be a successful learner.  Please expect this year to be one that is both exciting and demanding.  Hard work will be important to their academic success.

 The Utica Community Schools Board of Education voted unanimously (7-0) in mid-August to place a bond proposal on the November ballot to address safety and security, technology and infrastructure improvements identified through the district’s strategic, long-range facility improvement program.  Voter approval of the bond proposal has been structured to keep the tax rate at or below the current level.  An insert in our newsletter explains the Board's action and outlines the purpose of the bond proposal.  This proposal will impact every UCS student and school.  We will share more about the bond proposal when school opens.  For more information, you can also contact me at www.uticak12.org/2018bond.

Please click on this link to view my entire August 27th parent letter.

I can’t wait to greet the children!  Their smiles and excitement for learning is why we are all here at Oakbrook.  See you soon.

Sincerely,
Dr. Linda Schneider-Rediske
Principal

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.  We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on every child’s achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.
Parents should circle September 21 at 6:30 p.m. on their school calendars. On that night, Oakbrook Elementary will host its Open House. It is a great chance to hear about our plans for the year, meet your child's teacher, and make sure the school year gets off on a positive start. We look forward to seeing you there
