Congratulations to last year's 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students!

All grade levels scored above the district and state benchmarks in reading and math. Individual scores will be handed out at Parent -Teacher Conferences in October. High achievement is a direct reflection of the parent involvement and teacher dedication at Oatville. I’m very impressed with the quality of instruction that occurs on a daily basis at Oatville. The teachers are very dedicated in providing students with instruction based on their needs. They spend a lot of time testing the students throughout the year, and it is evident that the data is used for instructional growth purposes.

Students are welcome to wear their costumes to school and will also be having a costume parade. It is helpful to go ahead and send your child to school that morning and then parents join at check-in beginning at 9:00 am. Students will be parading around the building and parents are welcome to gather in the middle of the gym for best viewing.

Also, healthy snacks would be appreciated (breakfast casseroles, veggie trays, cheese/crackers, trail mix…). Most sweets, will be bagged up and sent home. A big thank you to all the room parents and volunteers for the help with the classroom parties.

Literacy First

Welcome back to school, Oatville Indians!

The Haysville School District is continuing to use Literacy First as our framework for teaching reading at the elementary level. What that means is each student is assessed through research-based, systematic processes to determine their zone of proximal development (ZPD). This enables teachers to better meet the needs of each student. That also means that each teacher has received extensive training to ensure your child succeeds in reading. Each day, your child will spend 1 hour in whole group, 1 hour in small groups or centers and 20 minutes of Monitored Independent Reading Practice (MIRP). One goal at Oatville Elementary is to create life-long learners with a love of literacy. We can’t wait to see what fantastic readers our kids are after receiving the incredible reading instruction they get to enjoy every day here at Oatville.

Each month I will post information regarding literacy strategies or skills that might be helpful for you and your child at home. We want to partner with you to see your child grow leaps and bounds this year!
