Brick Week Is Here!!
There has been a lot of talk about the new playground that will be installed at Oakview this year. PTA spoke of the “Brick Campaign” as our way of fundraising to provide for it. After all of the discussion, the time has now come. The website is set up and we will be taking orders from families wishing to BUY A BRICK that will be added to the landscape at Oakview Elementary School for many years to come.
The order deadline is Friday, February 23, 2018.
How do you order your brick?
- Visit the Oakview PTA website at www.oakviewpta.com.
- Click on the “Buy My Brick” link and follow the steps to design and pay for your brick. Online payment is preferred; however, you may send payment to the school with your child.
- Checks should be made payable to Oakview PTA with “Brick Order” in the memo line. Regardless of how you pay, you must visit the website to design and order your brick.
The project installation date is set to begin on April 1, 2018, for both the playground and brick walkway. The Oakview PTA’s goal is to provide $50,000 to support the improvements and new playground. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Our email is email@example.com.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!!

21st Century Tech Tools
Below is a short video that shows students collaborating and using new technology at Oakview. Mr. Hoeft lead students through a Google Expedition using the Virtual Reality Lab focused on supporting student understanding of the American Revolution. The students were very engaged and excited to have a 360 degree view of their lesson. Ms. Hoefel wrapped her solar system unit with a BreakOut Edu task. Students were both challenged and excited to demonstrate their learning. Ms. Garosi’s students used FlipGrid for the first time. They were eager to use video to explain what they know about literary mystery.

PTA Reflections 2017-2018
Congratulations to Oakview's PTA Reflections 2017-2018 Winners!
Oakview's PTA Reflections Committee is pleased to announce the list of winners at the school level (see list below). This year, we received a total of 58 entries from Kindergarten to Intermediate grade levels. All participants will be recognized in an award ceremony in the Spring (details to follow). All First to Third place winners will advance to the state round. Meanwhile, only First place winners are judged at the district level.
We were thrilled by the increase in participation this year and proud of each and everyone who joined. We hope that this year's winners will encourage more students to be a part of this exciting program, not only to experience recognition for their artistic talents that they deserve, but also to celebrate the significance of arts in education.
