Oakdale Roadrunner Dash- March 20, 2021

Calendar of Events

  • April 5-9  Spring Break

Hello Oakdale Families & Friends,

Thank you to those parents who helped to make our first virtual career day a huge success.   Students had an opportunity to learn about Chemistry, healthcare management law, Olympics development, engineering, and community advocacy.   

CEO Trait of the month is Grit.   Grit is a student’s ability to “stick with it”.  Our students at Oakdale have shown Grit in so many ways, through learning new tasks, trying something they’ve never done before, and continually trying to do their best.  We are constantly amazed at what they accomplish each and every day.    Would you like to continue having discussions on grit at home? Encourage your student to replace statements such as “I can’t” or “this is too hard” with “I will keep trying” or “I won’t give up yet”. 

“Grit is passion, perseverance for very long-term goals, stamina,”  Angela Duckworth.

Lost and Found

Outside our office, we have a coat rack for Coats, Jackets, Hats, Scarves, and Gloves that have lost their owners.  If you’re looking for missing items, check the lost of found.  

5th Grade Maturation

While growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be.  To help families rock “the talk” — even in this pandemic year — Canyons School District is offering its popular maturation program online.

From Wednesday, Feb. 24 through July 31, fifth-grade students and their parents will be able to access the program online at no charge through a password-protected link. The presentations are conducted by professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp who has been educating and entertaining young audiences, and their parents, for 20 years.

Through a time-limited license, fifth-grade families will access the programs for boys and girls through a password-protected link. The program aims to provide consistent, sensitive, and approved instruction districtwide. Versions are available in English and Spanish.

Detailed instructions for accessing the courses have been emailed to all fifth-grade parents and guardians.

Families with questions are encouraged to reach out to the Main Office.



Special Thank you for those who helped with the University of Learning Hygiene Kits.  

March Madness Read-A-Thon

We are excited for our favorite Reading Competition of the Year!  March Madness Read-A-Thon papers will be coming home with your students this coming Thursday.  The competition will run March 18th – March 31st.  For every 25 minutes your child reads at home simply initial a basketball.  When they reach certain milestones (250,500,750,1000) send the paper with your student to school so that they can collect their prizes.  This year we are going to have a friendly competition between classes.  The class in each grade with the most minutes read in this two week period will be getting either a pizza party or ice cream party (the winners will get to vote)


Remember any kind of reading counts…books, magazines, reading to younger siblings, parents/grandparent reading to child etc.  Anything outside of school counts.  Please encourage your child to Read Read Read.  Thank you for all of your support.  If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at
