I really cannot believe I am writing the last newsletter of the year. I want to thank each and every one of you for helping me through my first year with this amazing Oakdale community. Next year we are growing and adding many staff to our building. I am listing our team below. Please know that summer still holds potential for change.
We have some major changes in our administrative team. We are saying a fond farewell to Dr. Brooke Anthony and Ms. Wendy Gill. Dr. Anthony is exploring a variety of professional opportunities. Ms. Gill has been promoted to Assistant Principal at Urbana Middle School. We wish both of them much success in their future endeavors. The rest of the teams are listed below. I know you will get to know them soon.
We welcome Brenda Whipp and LeRoy Hand as our Assistant Principals and Tracie Eck as our 8th grade counselor. They will be writing you a welcome letter this summer.
Grade Level Teams:

We appreciate your help to ensure your child returns any borrowed materials immediately.
If you have changed your phone number, address, or emergency contact information, it is imperative that the school be made aware of these changes. Please contact Ms. Harden, OMS registrar, with any updated information at 240-236-5503.
If you have moved, please provide us with proof of residence (gas, electric or water bill) showing your new address as soon as possible. You can fax to 240 236-5519, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a copy to school with your child.
Term 4 – Ends Friday, June 9th and Report Cards will be mailed out on June 21st.
Obligations: Please have your child return all library books and pay for any lost or damaged books immediately. Students will also need to return school-owned combination locks and text books this week. Please discuss this with your child to ensure they start their summer with a clean slate.
Congratulations to Tessa Flora and Marina Jansen, who qualified for the finals in the Frederick Optimist Club 31st Annual Youth Talent Competition of the Performing Arts. Tessa competed in the Dance category, and Marina in the Vocal category.
If your child will be changing levels (elementary – middle – high) next year, please sign up to receive the new school’s Find Out First notifications. There will be important announcements about upcoming events for the incoming students and their families. But don't remove your current year subscriptions yet!
To update your subscription, follow the link from our school homepage to the Find Out First login page, or go directly to http://www.fcps.org/fof/oms.
Please encourage your student to check the Lost and Found in the cafeteria for misplaced or forgotten items, and feel free to stop in to check for items yourself. We hold many smaller items such as keys, jewelry, and eyeglasses in the front office. Unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity on June 9 (the last day of school).
