Our School Family Newsletter
Great Body Shop
THE GREAT BODY SHOP is a health education curriculum designed to provide students and families with the knowledge they need to make healthy choices throughout their lives. Monthly, for grades K-2, Student Issues are sent to the school to be used in the classroom. The Student Issue looks like a health magazine and is used like as a periodical or informational text. Teachers and students work with the instructional materials, typically once a week, to provide a solid understanding of the health issues found in the magazine. At the end of the month, students take the Student Issue home and use them for family activities, discussions and homework. In this way, one Student Issue is able to educate not only the student, but support the family as well. If you would like to learn more about the health topics at your child’s grade level, please contact your child’s teacher or visit www.thegreatbodyshop.net

The regular attenders rate for Oceanlake is 72.89%. Regular attenders are those students with 90% or better. Our goal is 80%.
To help reach our goal, please remember that we only exclude students if they experience fever, vomiting, or diarrhea. Let us know how we can better help in getting your student to school each day!
Please consult the above magnet of non-school days when scheduling doctor appointments, family visits and vacations. We have extra magnets at the office. Remember 9 or less is best!
Student Safety Team
Did you know that Oceanlake Elementary has its very own student safety team?
Students that choose to be a part of the student safety team make a pledge to act as examples of safety at our school. They assist with modeling safe behavior and reminding others to be safe in the classroom, hallway, cafeteria, bathroom, specials class and on the playground.
We have our new safety team members for this month: Caroline, Hunter, Michelle, Gracee, Jocelyn, Valeria, Kaia, Addie, Jordan, Rineheart, Krista, Jerimiah, RJ, and Olivia.
