Message from the Principal

Lisa Boyd, Principal of Oakbrook Elementary

Dear Oakbrook Friends and Families,

Let’s think for a minute about The Power of READING!

The single most important function of schooling is literacy – the ability to read and write. Here are a few quotes that highlight this:

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” – Frederick Douglass

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people.  They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.”  - Kofi Anan

“People don’t realize how a man’s whole life can be changed by one book.” – Malcolm X
