Hello Friends and Families:


"What School Supplies Do I Need?"

Every year the teachers provide Oakbrook students with a recommended supply list for each grade level or individual teacher. These lists will become available the second week of August.

Although the district provides funds that allows our school to buy the supplies your child may need to be successful, if you would like your child to have their own personal supplies, you may choose to purchase from the teacher list that will be shared out. Some grade levels have also asked for resources such as Kleenex that could be used to supply the whole class.  Please do not feel obligated to purchase any of the items listed from your child's grade level/teacher. For grade level/teacher supply lists, roll your cursor over the word “Staff” above and click on your child(ren)’s grade level. Depending on the grade level, some teachers use a grade level list, while others have individual classroom lists.

We hope these lists help you and your child(ren) prepare for another great year at Oakbrook!

Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing everyone September 3rd!

Digital Citizenship Week
Our school is joining others throughout the nation in marking Digital Citizenship Week during October 14-19, 2019. Digital Citizenship promotes the safe and effective use of technology for our students and is integrated throughout our programs. It remains an important strategic direction for Utica Community Schools and addresses important concepts such as cyberbullying, evaluating on-line content, digital foot printing and privacy. While we focus on digital citizenship throughout the school year, we ask that you take time this week to be familiar with these concepts and how we can continue to work together for our students. There are parent resources and more information available on our website at:http://www.uticak12.org/ucsdigitalcitizenship. We are also using a social media tag #ucsdigitalcitizenship to post resources on our social media sites. You can view all school and district sites are:http://uticak12.org/socialmedia.

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
