We’re excited to kick off the Boosterthon Fun Run at Oakbrook Elementary next week!

The goal of the Boosterthon Fun Run is to raise funds while teaching our students the importance of Fitness, Leadership, and Character. We are working together to help our school purchase iPads that will directly enhance your students learning experience. We need you to connect your child to sponsors who will pledge them an amount to help our school! We are very excited to have the Boosterthon Fun Run Team on campus for this 2-week program, as they will be adding value in so many ways to our students and school! For more information check out morethanarun.com

Please plan to come out and join us in celebrating your student at the Boosterthon Fun Run on Friday, April 11th!

Dear OES Family,
Next month, our students will be participating in the Boosterthon Fun Run.  This exciting event encourages fitness and team building.  The program will provide us with funds to support technology at Oakbrook Elementary School.  Please look for more information in the coming weeks.  We hope this will be an enjoyable event for our entire Oakbrook team!

That’s why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly. OES has just been approved as a certified Common Sense Media Signature School — an honor that recognizes our above-and-beyond efforts in teaching digital literacy and citizenship to young people and engaging the entire school community in this important discussion.

Mobile App

Dorchester District Two Launches Mobile App for instant communication

Dorchester School District Two has announced the launch of its Dorchester School District Two App, an all-in-one information source for parents, students, staff and community. Created by ParentLink, the app was developed specifically to provide direct access to general district information in the most convenient format – a person’s mobile device.

The Dorchester School District Two App also will offer parents password-protected access to see lunch accounts and attendance information, allowing parents to stay up-to-date on student progress at any time, from anywhere.   From the app, parents of 6th -12th grade students will be able to see live grades and can also set their own grade and assignment requirements.  This feature allows the parent to be immediately alerted through a push notification if a student’s score or grade drops below that self-selected threshold.   Schools will notify parents when passwords are available to be picked up at schools so they may view their students’ information.

The Dorchester School District Two App is free for users and available for immediate download on iPhone and Android devices.
