Today’s Parent Meeting:  STRESS MANAGEMENT

Many of you have indicated from the survey we took at the beginning of the year you would like to learn coping skills for stressful times. Join us on Friday at 8:55 am in the cafeteria for a parent meeting. The presentation’s topic will be Stress Management  (How to reduce, prevent and cope with stress.)   Two gift cards will be raffled at the end.

We will also be introducing our Oakman spirit school clothing line. This is NOT uniforms but rather t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies with the Oakman logo on it.  You can have your child’s name put on the clothing too.  Order forms will be available.  Join us for some great parent time!

كما سيتم تقديم ملابس الاسبوع الترفيهي وهي عبارة عن تي شرت، بلوزات وهوديز مكتوب عليها شعار مدرسة اوكمن. يمكنكم وضع اسم ولدكم على هذه الملابس. استمارات طلب الشراء ستكون متوفرة لكم.  نتمنى حضوركم هذا اللقاء الممتع!

A Message From The Principal

Dear Oakman Parents,

When I came to Oakman School I knew that I’ve became a member of a caring and super dedicated group of people! Also, I had no doubt in my mind that Oakman School is a special place due to all of the parents support and the positive relationship that exists between staff, students and families! The first semester has passed like a blink of an eye. Now the second semester has started with a full force. Our staff and students are working hard on accomplishing the goals they have set for themselves at the beginning of the school year. I urge you to keep active and be involved in your child’s journey through school by keeping in touch with the teacher. This can be accomplished via several means such as: making an appointment to speak with the teacher, communicating with your child’s teacher by email or by posting your comment on the teacher’s blog. Being on the same page with the teacher is an essential component of success to your child’s academic growth. On a different note, I’d like to inform you that I’ll be on a short medical leave ( six days) starting on February 9. In my absence , Mrs. Zahra Zreik is going to be the acting principal . She currently serves the district as an assistant principal at Lowrey school. She’s an excellent leader and I feel safe that she’ll be in charge as I tend to my medical need. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact her at (313)827-6500. She’ll gladly do her best to answer any of your questions or concerns . Thank you for your continuous support and for being a great advocate for your child. I look forward to joining my Oakman Family in the near future!
Best Regards,
Mahmoud Abu-Rus
