What is PTO? 

PTO is made up of a group of parents and teachers dedicated to improve the social and academic experience of all Oakdale students. We plan and coordinate school events and fundraisers such as our school book fair, movie nights, dances, and more.

Oakdale School  Library 

Why should YOU join Oakdale’s PTO?

We need your help to improve our students’ academic and social experiences! Support our school efforts. Studies show that when parents get involved in their student’s learning experience and their school, students do better overall. In order for all of our events and activities to be successful, we need more parent involvement! 


Participate in Oakdale Elementary’s PTO and/or become a volunteer. Let’s join forces and support all Oakdale students and help improve our school!


For more information, please contact 

Ms Todd, head secretary 


Mrs. J. Jimenez,


Hello, Oakdale staff!

Hello, Oakdale staff!

March 3rd is the next PTO meeting, at the library from 5:00-6:30 pm. Dr. Lopez will be in attendance to follow up on safety concerns.  Please consider attending and voicing your concerns alongside with the parents. In addition to the PTO meeting, there will be parent portal training and online registration help  for families. This event is to help pre-k students register for kindergarten. If you know of any families who may benefit from this, please recommend to come to this event.

Popcorn Day March 6th

Popcorn day will be this Friday, March 6th for K-2nd grade.  I will place student collection forms and envelopes in your mailboxes.  Please keep an eye out for them. The sooner the front office we can receive the popcorn orders the better!

District-Wide Face Happenings

The FACE department has developed many great opportunities such as family workshops and field trips for parents, students, and WPS 60 staff.  Anyone who is interested in attending those field trips may pay in the Oakdale office.  THAT’s RIGHT! You no longer need to go by Lincoln Center to sign up.  Come by the front office, and I can confirm if there is still availability and take payments. Please see below for the upcoming trips from the district.
