• Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)


    Parent-Teacher Association

    The Oakdale Elementary PTA meets once every other month.  All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. The association serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas between school and home, as well as for an organizational base of support for our school.  The PTA collaborates with the school on many special events, and sponsors various “fun”-draisers, including the annual School Carnival, to purchase items to benefit all students and staff at the school.  Please refer to the calendar on our website for meeting and event dates.


    Volunteering Pays

    Parents, grandparents and family members can help our school by taking part in matching contribution programs through their employers.
