Principal's Message

Welcome to Oak Middle School, home of the lions, where everyone is part of the “Pride.”

Oak offers a wide array of both rigorous and relevant courses. Students in grades 6-8 are given opportunities to develop their skills to be collaborative, creative, innovative, and extraordinary. Our academic programs explore literature, mathematics, science, history, world language, art, music, drama, physical education, engineering, and robotics. With over 40 clubs on campus, we encourage our students to become involved in activities that include leadership, the arts, sports, and scholarship. In addition, our ASB and sixth-grade leadership help to coordinate school-wide events like spirit days and school dances.

Lunch periods are designed to allow students to have time to socialize with new and old friends. Friday lunches are filled with activities that usually get many of our students up and dancing in our amphitheater. Sixth graders have a separate lunch period, while 7th and 8th grade lunches are joined together.

We invite Oak parents to become involved and connected to the school culture. Opportunities to volunteer are available each week. Paw prints is our on campus copy center run by our parent volunteers.   We invite our parents to join our PTA and School Site Council. Volunteers are also used to help facilitate some of our school activities such as our Veteran’s Day Celebration, Pi Day, Lion Pride Lunches, track meets, and community events. We would love to have you join us.

Watch for our weekly “Lion’s Roar” newsletter that is sent via email every Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. This is a great way to see what our students have learned during that week.

We are all excited to see familiar faces as well as meeting all our new students and families for the 2021-2022 school year. If you have any questions, please feel free to phone our school office at 562-799-4740.

Hear Us Roar!
