Skate Party

The PTA is planning a skating party at Roller City from 4:15 to 6:00 p.m. The cost of skating is $4.00 per person with the students being transported to the skating rink by district school bus. Please be sure to come into the rink between 6:00 and 6:15 p.m. to check your child out. Permission slips will be sent home prior to the event and students will not be allowed to enter the bus without a signed slip. Please note the skating money and spending money must be in separate envelopes.

Now you can check your child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math from home. Renaissance Learning has released a Home Connect program. Follow this link and use the same log in information your child uses at school.

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.

Latchkey before school is provided through the Haysville Activity Center (HAC). For information to sign up your child for morning latchkey or for drop in care for your kids on days in which school is out.

Call the school if you are interested in becoming a teacher helper, tutor, field trip monitor, etc. The students need YOU!

Literacy First

State Assessments Begin April 4

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are high-quality academic expectations that were created by experts and teachers from around the country. These research and evidence based standards were developed to ensure students are prepared to successfully enter a world after high school where colleges and businesses are increasingly demanding more from their employees. The CCSS helps develop and build your child’s critical-thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

Teachers are hard at work creating rigorous lessons that will help them develop their skills in reading, writing, speaking & listening and math. Students are applying these skills to other areas such as science and history. The earlier teachers begin to teach these core concepts, the more time it gives teachers to implement them and students to master them.

Oatville students in third, fourth and fifth grades have recently started taking the state assessments. They will be using reasoning skills, working through complex problems, and even doing research on a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts, demonstrating their skills they’ve acquired through the rigors of instruction based on the Common Core State Standards.

If you have any questions about College and Career Ready Standards, please contact your child’s teacher, Mary Hunt, or check out these websites: and
