Dear Eagle Families,

We are so excited to welcome our Oakbrook Eagles back to school after a restful winter break! For trimester 2 we will continue to focus on the Four Pillars for Student Success. These pillars are a framework of traits that provide a strong foundation for student success in school and after graduation!

Lifelong learner: Students are motivated to gain new knowledge even outside of the classroom and after graduation.

Collaboration: Students work together toward a common goal, such as completing a group project or making a difference in their community.

Character: Students choose to do the right thing when no one is watching or are dedicated to overcoming difficult challenges.

Leadership: Students help themselves and others do the right things and lead by example.

This trimester we will also focus on assessments and getting our 3rd – 5th graders ready for state testing in the Spring.

We are also hoping to have another community event here at Oakbrook, so stay tuned!

Important reminders:

Arrival and Dismissal

Here are a few key reminders about each of our arrival and dismissal zones.

Zone 1: Parent Loop-

  • Parents are asked to flow through the parent loop at the side of the building by entering on Onyx Drive and exiting on 83rd Ave SW
  • Parents are to always remain in their vehicles
  • Students will need to quickly exit/enter the vehicle to keep the loop moving
  • Staff will not be able to dismiss students to parents in the loop until school dismisses at 2:40 PM
  • For safety reasons, no parents should be parking in the loop prior to 2:15 PM
  •  Staff will call students from the flag to cars as the loop is moving- there is no specific order for this so please be patient while you wait for your child(ren)

Zone 2: Bus Loop-

  • There will be no parking or dismissing students from the bus loop to parents or vehicles as this is a safety hazard
  • Only buses are to be in the bus loop during this time. If you are dropping off or picking up your child(ren) you will need to use the parent loop
  • Students will not be allowed to cross through the buses or around the buses
  • Adults (staff, parents, community members) will also not be allowed to cross through or around the buses during these times 

Zone 3: OCC/Crosswalk & Walkers-

  • The crosswalk by the OCC (Oakbrook Childcare Center) will be supervised by staff to support a safe crossing spot for our students
  • Please be aware that school zone speeds are 20 mph during the day
  • Please be respectful and patient as staff will be stopping traffic and supporting students crossing the busy street
  • During dismissal, our students will be walked up to the crosswalk and dismissed to the OCC and/or to walk home 

It is imperative that you respect, follow, and support these zones and teach your child(ren) how to navigate these areas. This is for the safety of all our students and staff. 


Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience! We appreciate everything volunteers do to help us reach our goal of academic success for all children. We are now able to welcome volunteers back into the school to help with lunch and recess, or in classrooms!  Please reach out to your students’ teacher or our front desk staff to set up a time to volunteer!

In order to volunteer you will need to do the following:

  • Use the online application system including a background check
  • Attend training via an online link (provided in approval email from online application)
  • Complete attestation of COVID-19 vaccination (accomplished at first volunteer event) 

When you enter the online Volunteer application (English | Spanish) make sure you enter your name the same way it reads on your state or government issued ID card. You will need a valid email address so we can notify you of your application status.  All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not shared outside the volunteer program. 

Your application submission authorizes CPSD to conduct a background check through Washington State Patrol. Once approved, you will receive an email with a link to the online training. Required training includes:

  • Boundary Invasion - Video
  • Civility Policy
  • Safety & Confidentiality Statements 


When you report to Oakbrook for the first time to volunteer, you will need to:

  • Show your driver’s license or state issued ID card
  • Show proof that you have completed your volunteer training
  • Sign a vaccine attestation form (provided at the school)

All applications expire at the end of every school year. Every volunteer must re-apply at the start of each new school year. 


We invite you to be a vital part of our school by joining Oakbrook’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and or represent us at the Parent Connection Council with the district that meets four times per year. Please contact our front office staff or our PTA president Betsy Miller for more info!

Student Support:

As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s achievement and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  • Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
  • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school 

The wonderful Oakbrook staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to partnering with you. 

Warm Regards, 

Leila Davis
Proud Oakbrook Principal
