Would you love to help children grow their reading or math skills and succeed in school? If your answer is yes, you can be trained to serve as a tutor with Minnesota Reading Corps or Minnesota Math Corps at Oakdale Elementary. Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can be a child’s hero as a tutor. Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps provided direct services to more than 35,000 children in more than 900 sites across the state.

As a Literacy Tutor, you’ll use research-proven strategies to help students become proficient, confident readers. As a Math Tutor, you’ll help struggling 4th-8th grade students gain the core math skills they need to prepare for high school graduation and college enrollment. There are openings for part-time and full-time tutors, and tutors serve most of their hours during the school day.

Tutors come from many backgrounds and include recent high school and college grads, career changers, stay-at-home parents, and retirees. With extensive training, support from onsite coaches, and evidence-based strategies, tutors are well-equipped to change lives. Tutors may earn a living allowance, education award, and federal student loan forbearance, and will have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child.

To learn how you can join the team of Minnesota Reading Corps or Minnesota Math Corps tutors and apply online at MinnesotaReadingCorps.org or MinnesotaMathCorps.org.

Welcome

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!!!
