Dear Parents,

    It’s time for our annual Oakdale Elementary Fundraiser!

    Again this year, we will not be asking your students to sell something as part of our fundraiser. Hooray! I’m sure you all agree that every dollar…… every penny…… we raise, is important! So this year 100% of the funds we raise will go directly to our school to benefit our students and teachers!



    Each classroom is going to have a “change can.” Students can ask their parents or other family members/close friends, to save their “extra change” to put in their classroom can from now until they “run” on November 5th. The class with the highest amount raised will get a pizza and movie party, the second place class will get an ice cream party, and the third place class will each get a candy bar.

    Each student will receive a Fun Run t-shirt regardless of making a donation or not. We want all our students to participate in the Fun Run!

    Just like last year, the PTA will be marking off the laps on each student’s t-shirt. You can donate per lap, or just a specific amount for your student participating in the Fun Run. Remember, 100% of the money we raise will go to our school!

    You can send in a check or cash, or you can pay directly to our school store and pay via this link:


    Don’t forget to ask grandparents and other supportive family members and friends!

    With every $25 donated, your student will get to pick a fun keychain to hang on their backpack! Let’s admit it, for the kids it’s all about the prizes! We know the student’s will have fun showing off their fun key chains!

    We will also have a contest for the classes that bring in the most donations. As with the “change can” contest, we will award the class with the highest amount raised a pizza and movie party, second place with an ice cream party, and third place class will each get a candy bar. Likewise, there will be prizes for the top 5 students in the school that raise the most money.

    Thursday, November 5th will be the day we will RUN! The Fun Run will be held in the gym and the lower grades will run in the morning and the upper grades will run in the afternoon. This will be a great event! Parents are welcome to come and help, watch or support our students!

Many businesses donate small and large prizes throughout the year for the students. The program works best with parental involvement. Please help and encourage your child so they will be successful.

    Here are the instructions to log your child’s reading minutes online at Road to Success.

    2. Choose STUDENT

    7. Choose +ADD NEW BOOK (At this time, you may enter a book title OR just put something like ‘Reading time’
    8. Enter student’s reading minutes on correct day

    Key points to remember…students earn tickets for reading on consecutive days

    5 days = 1 ticket   7 days = 2 tickets

    The more tickets a student earns, the greater their chance of winning a grand prize at the

    end of the year.

    Please contact Mrs. Walsh or Mrs. Carlson with any questions.

  • Oakdale Brain Booster Schedule

    This year Canyons School District provided each elementary school with the opportunity to provide enrichment rotations called “Brain Booster” classes.  At Oakdale, first through fourth graders will get weekly rotations of Music, Playworks, STEM, and library.  Kindergarten will have the opportunity to visit the library regularly during their Oral Reading time, and will also get to enjoy weekly time participating in the Playworks Brain Booster.  Click here to see the Brain Booster Schedule. The following is a brief explanation of each Brain Booster:

    During Music time Mr. John VanWagoner will be using voice and instruments to engage students in singing and playing music while learning about rhythm, notes, and sound.  Don’t be surprised to hear your students humming and singing fun songs at home.  They will be learning a lot of new tunes! 


    Playworks is a positive play-based approach to help students be active in a collaborative and positive way.  Mrs. Megan Alder is our Oakdale Playworks Technician.  During this time with Mrs. Alder students will learn games and skills tied to the National P.E. Standards.  They will have opportunities to practice these skills and games during their Brain Booster time and will also have the option to play these games during recess.  During this time students will also learn strategies to help them solve the everyday challenges that might come up when playing with other children.  This time offers the opportunity for students to explore their imaginations, connect with other students and to interact physically, emotionally and socially.  Playworks is a non-profit organization working side by side with schools to promote this vision.


    Library Time
    Students look forward to attending their weekly Library time where Mrs. Shannon Walsh and Mrs. Tami Carlson read to students and help them check out books.  They also teach our Roadrunners how to navigate the library and assist in the exploration of various genres and stories.  The skills your children learn during this time help them become better readers, and learners in an enjoyable and  imaginative manner!

    Mrs. Tammy Norton opens new worlds to our students through Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math.  This program supports students in learning by engaging students in scientific inquiry with engineering, experimenting, discovery, and trying new things.  The skills and knowledge acquired in each of these disciplines prepare our students for 21st century college and career readiness by engaging them in the scientific method and facilitating collaborative learning.

It also will give teachers and parents new tools to help students succeed.
