Welcome to Oakdale Elementary,
home of the Tigers!

Our school is home to approximately 550 students in grades PreK-5. Our school also houses a multiple needs center, which works with families and students with developmental cognitive disabilities. Your children deserve the best, and each day our highly qualified and caring staff works extremely hard to make Oakdale an exciting home for children to grow educationally, emotionally and socially, and succeed to the best of their ability.

Oakdale’s vision states that every Oakdale Elementary student, regardless of background and abilities, will be prepared to succeed in middle school and beyond.  As part of this goal, we have developed a school-wide plan of expectations for ours tudents. Every day Oakdale students practice behaviors to demonstrate that they are respectful, responsible, and ready to develop skills of self-control, character, orderliness and efficiency.


“I promise to Respect myself, others, and my school”– Students practice this every day through kind behaviors in class, in the hallways, and in the cafeteria. We work to build a strong school community through fun activities like Jump Rope for Heart, the Family Dance, the PTA Spring Carnival, and our Multi-Cultural Variety Show.


“I am Responsible for doing my best in reading, math, and the rest” – Oakdale students work very hard with their teachers to learn how to be successful students.


“I promise to be Ready by following all rules and directions” – By making the commitment to be ready each day, to listen well and follow rules and directions throughout the school, Oakdale students prove time and again that they are ready for learning and ready for success.


By practicing the skills of being respectful, responsible, and ready, Oakdale students do an excellent job preparing for a lifetime of achievements. Thank you to students and families for your hard work, smiling faces, and commitment to the Oakdale Elementary community.  Together, we’re GRRReat!!!
