A Message from Dr. Reavis

Time sure does fly when you are having fun! The 100th Day of School is Friday, January 27, and we are in awe of the things that our students and staff have done. Now we look forward to the last half of our year--84 more days to go!

Academics is always at the forefront at Oakview. Our 2nd through 5th grade students have been preparing to take mid-year benchmark tests. These literacy and math assessments give our teachers great insight as to what students know and how they are progressing. We know our kids will do their absolute best!

Our wonderful PTA also has some great events planned for us in the second half of the year. The Winter Ball, Donuts for Grownups, and the crowd-favorite Hootenanny are all on the horizon. Be sure to stay tuned for details.

As we move past the halfway mark of this year, I want to thank our families for supporting Oakview. Thank you for volunteering your time. Thank you for coming in for conferences and studying for tests. Thank you for reading with your child every day. Thank you for giving to our PTA fundraisers. We know that every family is involved with our children's education and we appreciate the efforts as we head to the end of the 22-23 school year!

2023-24 School Calendar

Student Calendars Released 2023-24 and 2024-25

Students will start the new school year on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. The last day of school will be Wednesday, May 22, 2024. The calendars reflect a shift to allow the fall academic semester to end prior to Winter Break. This adjustment will be academically beneficial to students, and the feedback received regarding this shift was extremely positive, with 74% of respondents in favor, as detailed below. Midterms, finals and state testing will be completed before students leave for winter break, rather than in January when they return to school after an extended break.
