Preschool Tours Available Mon. 1/8 and Wed. 1/10; Registration starts Tues., 1/16

It’s a “too well-kept secret” that Oak School hosts the district preschool. The reality is that a highly skilled, certified, committed and positive staff provides a wonderful preschool environment for any child living within the D181 boundaries. The program is blended, with the majority of students being typical peers, and up to 30 percent of students receiving additional support. We will be offering tours to any interested parents on Mon., Jan. 8 and Wed., Jan. 10 – appointments are required. Please call 630.861.4302 to speak with Mrs. Maggie Maier, ask questions and/or schedule an appointment to tour. Registration begins on Tues., Jan. 16. See the attached flier with details.

NIGHT OWL Parent Fundraiser

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We are honored to announce underwriters who have already signed on as Principal Sponsors: Anna Fiascone, Union Partners, and TinkRWorks.

We need you for this event to be successful!  We respectfully request any support you are able to offer through either a cash donation, or as an in-kind donor of any good or service. Perhaps you received unneeded gift cards?  Or your kids received a few too many toys?  We can certainly put to great use in our auction! Please visit http://nightowl.gesture.com to enter in your donation, find all tools and forms here, or contact auction@oakpto.org directly.

Thank you, and cheers to a prosperous and healthy 2018!

As part of this year’s Oak Benefit, we will have a Wine Pull and cases of wine for auction. To show your support, please stop into Hinsdale Wine Shop between now and April 6th to purchase these bottles; 10% of the sale proceeds will go back to Oak PTO! The process is simple. Stop into or call Hinsdale Wine Shop (located at 12 E Hinsdale Ave. phone 630-654-9862). They will help you select great bottles (we’re asking for a minimum of $25/bottle).

Birthday Lunch with the Principal

WHOO’S having a birthday?? Hootie says you do! For all 1st through 5th grade birthdays in the month of January, join Principal Dr. Henrikson during your lunch period to celebrate in the MRC (library) on Wednesday, January 10th. Please bring your packed lunch and we will supply the fun with games and surprises! Please look for an invitation to come home with your child on Monday.


Tomorrow is our first Lunch-In of the new year with Meatheads (burgers, hot dog, chicken tenders, grilled cheese, salad).

Lunch-In can not happen without volunteers!! We have many volunteer spots open for both lunch periods. Sign up on myfooddays.com.

If you are volunteering for grades 1,2, or 3, we ask that you help out from 11:15-11:50.
If you are volunteering for grades 4 or 5, we ask that you help from 11:40-12:15.

Last Chance to Place Lunch-In orders

If you missed our Lunch-In deadline over winter break, we have great news! Myfooddays will reopen for another week starting Tuesday morning, January 9th through Monday, January 15th midnight. During this time, parents may place orders for weekly hot lunches. Parents may also change any current orders. Please go to myfoodays.com to order. For new Oak families who would like to participate in our Lunch-In program, you will need to first register, add your children to your account, and then order food. Here is the link to order lunches. Please consider ordering extra food portions if your child has a large appetite. We can not accommodate extra food if your child is still hungry.
