  • Roadrunners on The Road to Success

    Dear Parent,

    The Road to Success reading incentive program is a fantastic way to encourage personal reading time for children. 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.

    1. Go to www.rtsutah.com
    2. Choose STUDENT
    3. Choose RECORD YOUR READING
    4. Enter user name
    5. Enter pin
    6. Choose ENTER TIME
    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:

    Music
    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
    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!

    STEM
    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.
