Oak Park Family:

We are working diligently to surpass last school years points of pride, which include $2.7 million in scholarships for the Class of 2014; a Gates Millennium Scholarship Recipient that we are proud of, as well as our 2013 Gates Millennium Scholarship Finalist and 2012 Gates Millennium Recipient; students accepted into nationally ranked, big ten, and very prestigious colleges and universities throughout the country; Division I State Champion Girls Track and Field Team and Division I Runner Up State Champion Boys Track and Field Team; award winning marching band performances and robotics teams competitions for students in grades 3 - 12; students providing community service in other countries (with buildOn); award winning medical career students (HOSA); elementary spelling bee champions; elementary student art fairs; providing a unique middle school experience for students in their gender based core classes (OPPA); after school tutoring opportunities for all students, and so much more. The goal is for every student to experience those opportunities and more. Please stay abreast of all of our events, by either signing up for our e-blast or by picking up a calendar from your child’s school.
The Importance of Daily Attendance
Please be reminded that every day is one that is filled with engaged learning for all students. Daily attendance for every student is everybody’s business. We must make certain all of our students are attending school (each class for secondary students) daily.
The Importance of Staying Connected
We continue to share our story about our academic, arts, athletics, and attitude transformation. We are the change we want to see in our community/the world. We continue to make our transition by asking parents to stay connected to the district. The dates listed below are vital to the success of all stakeholders, so please mark your calendars.
