Dear Oakridge Family,

Wow…what an amazing week! From the tense moments of watching our Rangers night by night to the elation we felt when they won the World Series, this week has been a rollercoaster of emotions! This week, we also celebrate our Upper School fall student-athletes as they prepare for the SPC Championships. Stay tuned to the schedules as each team advances through the tournament! 

Last week was also the final week of our annual Oakridge Fund campaign. I want to thank you all for your gifts and, most importantly, your support and participation. The Oakridge Fund is essential to driving innovation at our school. It is the vehicle behind which we are allowed to make choices in incremental improvements to our campus and our programs. EVERY SINGLE CENT goes back to our students and teachers in one form or fashion. Whether it is protecting our campus with increased security measures, bringing in an educational expert to work with our faculty and staff, sending a teacher or administrator to the conference that helps them hone their skills, or adding signature curriculum to our already exceptional programming. Team Oakridge has come through with flying colors. Over 70% of our families, 100% of our Board of Regents, 100% of our faculty and staff, and countless grandparents and friends came together during our campaign to help our school move forward. By doing so, we showed that we are All In For Oakridge!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Go Owls!
