As principal of Oaklawn, I want to assure you that every decision that is made in our school is based on what is best for children.  It is my goal, not only for us to have high expectations of our students, but to also equip them so that they learn to have high expectations of themselves.  This is the best gift we can give them. 

At Oaklawn, we are committed to providing a quality language immersion program where students can be successful in today’s increasingly diverse and global society.  Students learn about other cultures through music, storytelling, social studies, art and physical education. Our staff is committed to providing a variety of learning experiences to broaden our students’ knowledge and promote tolerance and respect.

Parent and community involvement and staff commitment make the difference in the academic success of Oaklawn students. I encourage you to become an active partner in your child’s education by staying in close contact with your child’s teachers and with the school staff.  Please consider joining our school’s PTA, volunteering at the school, and participating in the numerous events that we have planned for this school year.  Also, please feel free to email me or call our school if you have any questions or concern.  We encourage your continued interest and support in this very important partnership.  

Looking forward to the journey ahead!
