Academics

The Oakdale Community Club helps to maximize the education of every students by providing supplemental educational materials and experiences.

  


 

These programs are made possible by our dedicated volunteers and sponsors.

 

BRAIN POP

Community Club provides funding for Brain Pop's GameUp. GameUp is a vetted and always-expanding collection of cross-curricular digital learning games from leading game designers, paired with implementation materials. A Lesson Ideas page accompanies each game, with game guides; tips; tutorials; standards-aligned lesson plans, and assessment ideas. Select GameUp titles are enabled with their SnapThought tool, which encourages reflection in key moments in game play. Students can capture a screenshot of what they’ve done, make notes about it, and send it to teachers for feedback.


classroom funds / teacher grants

At the beginning of the school year, Community Club issues classroom funds to each teacher to be used in the classroom. Teacher grants are awarded to teachers in various amounts depending upon the need. These funds are determined based upon what the teacher requests. The Principal (Glen Jagels) approves the grants.


JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT

Community Club helps to enhance the curriculum with Junior Achievement’s Elementary School Program, which is dedicated to educating children about work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to own their economic success. Their programs teach basic economic concepts (i.e. helping, earning, saving) and life skills (i.e. decision-making, teamwork) through hands-on activities. This event is coordinated by the Committee Chair(s), and volunteers are asked to sign-up. 


TIGER PRIDE ART CONTEST

The Tiger Pride Art Contest is a fun way for students to show their school spirit and creativity. They're asked to draw, color, and/or paint their very best picture. Each year, there is a theme. The winner is featured in the newsletter, Facebook, and the cover of the yearbook! An honorable mention winner is also selected from each grade.


SCHOLARSHIP

Each spring, Community Club offers a $500 scholarship to a former Oakdale student graduating from Westside High School. The school invites all of the high school seniors to visit Oakdale. They sit down with 6th graders and provide them with advice. Then, we award the scholarship. To follow, the high school seniors walk the halls in their cap and gown in front of all the current Oakdale students.
