Burn Drive

Firefighters save lives nearly every day, and the Burn Drive helps Dearborn firefighters improve the lives of even more. 

The Dearborn firefighters always support Oakman, so let’s support them. Please donate any amount. Every year Oakman raises hundreds of dollars to donate to those less fortunate than we are. 

What’s Happening This Week?

We are all excited to be reunited after a long break. Hopefully we are also feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the challenges ahead. Please help your child get back into the routine of going to bed in time to get a full night of sleep. The Winter NWEA testing window is now open and students will be testing soon. Classroom teachers will notify students of testing days and times.

The PTA school store will be open on Wednesday afternoon. 

Have a magnificent week!
