On Thursday, October 6th, students in grades 4-8 traveled to Felt’s Field and participated in stations focusing on robotics, a wind table, and and introduction to flight session where they explored a real airplane and were taught the fundamentals of flight. The students were taught by one of the museum’s volunteer pilots. Also part of the trip was the Museum of Flight’s Flying Gizmo assembly. The students had a great time and the staff at the museum were very impressed with the Oakesdale students.
Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th – 21st.
The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 across Washington State.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Hagan Foundation, the Primaries have implemented a full perceptual motor program that aids the academic and physical development of our students. This is a program unique to Oakesdale and is allowing the students to not only grow and improve in their school work, but also their motor coordination and brain development. Look forward to more photos as each week new rotations will be implemented.
