Dear Parents / Guardians:
Welcome back to Oak Tree School for the 2010 – 2011 School Year!
I would like to share some information about how we will be communicating with you this year, as
some things have changed.
At Oak Tree, we are very proud of our “Green School” status. As you may recall, our June, 2010,
Principal’s Newsletter was the last paper copy. The Principal’s Newsletter will be available for your
review on the Oak Tree Website. Please find the Oak Tree website by visiting the Monroe Township
School District website at www.monroe.k12.nj.us and select Oak Tree from the list of schools. If you
do not have access to a computer, please let the Main Office know at 609-655-7642 and a copy of the
Principal’s Newsletter will be sent home to you.
In staying with our “Green” initiative, staff members have been encouraged to communicate with you
the same way. You may find newsletters, class information, homework / projects and helpful
educational information and tips posted on teachers’ WebPages. When you have accessed the Oak Tree
Website, please refer to the tab on the top of the page indicating “Staff Webpages.” When you select
Staff Webpages, you will be brought to a list of staff members. Please double click on the staff
member’s name you are interested in visiting for information.
Oak Tree will be the site for a community-wide “Green Fair,” sponsored by the Monroe Township
Environmental Commission and the Monroe Township Public Library on Saturday, October 9, 2010. We
are very excited about this event being held at Oak Tree School and will share more information about
the Fair as it becomes available. We are proud to announce the winner of the Green Fair Art Logo
Contest is Gabrielle Ballotta, a grade 6 student in Ms. Hanna’s class. Great work Gabrielle!
The District is also using a new information system called AlertNow. It will be similar in nature to the
Global Connect system we used in the past. More information will be shared with you as it becomes
available. Please understand in the event of an emergency, we already have the system in place to
share information with you.
We are looking forward to another great year at Oak Tree. As always, please do not hesitate to contact
me at 609-655-7642 if you have any questions or concerns.
