Last Week

Happy Last Week of School!!!

The last week of school is here!!! It will be a busy one.  We have a lot jammed packed  into the last week.

  • Monday we will participate in Junior Achievement lesson during the morning.
  • Tuesday morning is the Awards Assembly.
  • Wednesday the entire school will be attending the 8th grade graduation. Report cards will be sent home this day as well. 
  • Thursday is Field Day!! 

Important information about field day...
  • K-8 students are not required to wear uniforms but must dress with the same coverage as the uniforms (no tank tops or short shorts)
  • Shoes will get wet!  Water shoes or sandals are preferred.  Tennis shoes are good too but they will get wet.
  • There are several water activities and swimming suits are allowed but must be a one piece. NO BIKINIS (please have their swim suits on under their clothing)
  • Friends of Oasis Academy is sponsoring a BBQ for all K-8 students and volunteers so a full free lunch will be provided (hot dogs, fruit, chips, drink, etc.).  If your student has a food allergy you may want to consider sending them with a sack lunch.
  • Please label all of your student's belongings!!!  (Towel, clothing, bag or backpack, etc)
  • Send your child's belongings in a bag or backpack so they can keep everything together.
  • APPLY SUNSCREEN before you drop them off at school.
  • In the morning, students will be dropped off in the big commercial parking lot by Dollar Tree and will walk back to the playground to find their class.
  •  Dismissal of all student will be at 2:00. After school pick up will follow normal procedure.

This year has gone by so fast.  I am so happy that I got to learn and teach with you and your children this year.  I have loved teaching this group of 1st graders this year.    They have all grown academically as well as physically.  I have no doubt that they will continue to be rock stars in the future years.  

Please read with your child over the summer. The library has a great reading program and Oasis will be offering a reward to all children that read over the summer months. 

Have a wonderful summer with your family

Quarter 4 Week 8

Image result for MOTHER'S DAY

Hello First Grade Families,

Happy Mothers day to all the wonderful Moms out there. I hope everyone was able to enjoy their day. I can't believe that we only have 2 more weeks of school and our first graders will be second graders.

Last week in 1st grade we...
  • worked hard on end of the quarter assessments.
  • finished our small moment narrative stories.
  • Read a Tall Tale about Paul Bunyan.
  • finish up with root words, prefixes and suffixes.
This week we will...
  • continue reading tall tales.
  • share our small moments with our friends.
  • continue working on assessment.
Last week the 3rd graders had their own stores that they made products to "sell" to the 1st graders. Each 1st grader was given $20 (play money) and they got to be consumers and shop at each 3rd grade store.  I'm sure you noticed the creative things that were bought when your child took them out of their backpacks.  It was a fun time had by all and they got put into action what we have been learning about producers, consumers, goods, and services.

A Few Date To Remember:
  • 8th graders will continue to sell lemonade at lunch recess until May 23.  Feel free to send your child with a quarter or 2 so they can enjoy a glass of lemonade.  
  • Field day will be on the last day of school. May 25. Please sign up to help with this fun event.
  • Report cards will go home next Wednesday!!
I wanted to thank everyone for making teacher appreciation week such a special week.  The goodies in the teachers lounge, the special notes and gifts were wonderful!! I appreciate all the wonderful families we have at Oasis Academy.


Happy Monday!

We hope that you had a joyous Mother’s Day weekend.  It’s our last “regular” week of school.  The teachers will be busy assessing students this week.  For first grade homework, please have your child choose one IXL assignment, of their choice, each night to complete.  Mrs. Bloomfield and I will receive daily reports on who has completed their assignments.
