All Oaks families are invited to come cheer on our Oaks soccer and volleyball teams Friday, October 29 for the final games of the season (prior to the tournament at Real Life Ministries November 5th & 6th). This will be a very special evening of athletics as we host our final Family Night of the season and celebrate our Oaks seniors.

Soccer players will be acknowledged at half time (approx. 4:45pm) on the field and volleyball players at 7pm, prior to the match, in the gym.

Let's line the field and fill the gym in unity as we thank God for His faithfulness and kindness. This is sure to be a great blessing to our seniors and their families!

FAMILY NIGHT: For $5 per person (family maximum - $20) you will receive dinner and admission to all the games. Dinner will be served from 5:00–7:00 pm. This week we'll be serving up hot dogs and brats!

Wear your Oaks gear and get ready to cheer! Let's fill the gym and field with Oaks fans and root on our teams. GO OAKS!!!

THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT! Introducing The Oaks App

The Oaks exists to partner with parents to raise classically educated young men and women who glorify Christ, shape culture, and shine the light of God's truth on all of life's endeavors. One way that The Oaks seeks to support this effort is by providing parents with resources that strengthen their understanding of classical Christian education and the importance of it in our world today. Therefore, we are excited to introduce The Oaks App! Designed to bless and edify parents as they live out their God-given calling, the app provides video podcasts, audio & video versions of Monday Meals, push notifications for community events, and information on extracurricular programs. Additionally, the app offers a Bible, with several translations and an audio version.

To download The Oaks App:
1. Go to your app store
2. Search "OaksCCA"
3. Click "Get" (It's Free!)
4. Enjoy the resources and encouragement!

Grammar School

Student–Parent Handbook Agreement - Due Fri., Oct. 22

Please read the 2021-22 Student–Parent Handbook and complete the Student–Parent Handbook Agreement (available in Jupiter, under Forms) by Friday, October 22. Printed copies of the handbook are available in the school office if you would prefer.

Absentee Reminders

When your child is home sick, please notify his teacher and the school office prior to 10am. Grammar teachers will gather school work throughout the day and have it available in the classroom after school to be picked up by a parent or sibling. It's extremely helpful for students to keep up on their school work as much as they are able while home sick and the teachers are eager to help keep your child on track while missing a day or two.

Logic & Rhetoric Schools

Student–Parent Handbook Agreement Reminder!

If you have not already done so, please read the 2021-22 Student–Parent Handbook and complete the Student–Parent Handbook Agreement (available in Jupiter, under Forms). The office will start calling families who have not completed this next week. Printed copies of the handbook are available in the school office if you would prefer.

Dance Instruction - Thurs., Oct. 28

The Logic & Rhetoric School will be following an activity schedule (see schedules) on Thursday, October 28th, allowing them the opportunity to participate in some dance instruction at the end of the day, led by Mrs. Heidy Cartwright. Several dance instruction days are scheduled throughout the 1st semester in preparation for the Winter Dance (9–12th grades), which is scheduled for Saturday, January 15. Any parents who would like to participate in the instruction (and the dance) are encouraged to join in the fun!

AP Exams - Registration open; deadline is Fri., Nov. 12

High school students have the opportunity to take the Advanced Placement exam this May at The Oaks. For some colleges, students can receive college credit for passing an AP exam, scoring a "3" and above (on a 1-5 scale). This will enable a student to waive the equivalent college course during freshman year (Freshman English Composition, for example). So, for those participating colleges, passing an AP exam will save money (and time) in the long run. Each university handles AP credit differently; you will want to check out a specific college to understand how they treat AP exam scores.

To register, log into your Jupiter parent portal, go to Forms and select AP Exam Registration. Once your registration is processed the exam fee will be applied to your Jupiter account and may be paid by cash or check in the school office or via credit card through Jupiter. Registration and payment are due by Friday, November 12. Please read the letter below for further information and contact Mrs. Lynn Gibson with any questions.

Absentee School Work

If your child is home sick please call the school office prior to 10am to let them know.

It is helpful for your child to stay caught up on school work to the best of their ability while home sick, as it will ease the transition when they are healthy and back at school. The office and the teachers are eager to help you make it a little easier.
