Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

August 2019

Welcome Back to School Falcons!

This summer has been filled with excitement and lots of remarkable construction on your Five Oaks campus!  We are looking forward to welcoming you back in a few short weeks to add energy and enthusiasm to our newly renovated hallways.  Here at Five Oaks and Rachel Carson Middle School, our mission remains to empower you to become compassionate members of a global society.  With this mission in mind, many of our teachers have been engaged in professional learning experiences this summer and preparing rigorous and engaging experiences for our students.  

Here are some important details about this year.

  • The First day of school is September 3rd (6th grade only) and September 4th (all grades)
  • We have many new inviting spaces to spark your innovation and curiosity all over the building and we are excited to showcase these some of what we've been up to in the slideshow below.  
  • In addition to the building changes, we are embracing updated expectations around cell phone use that are critical to the success of students. With our mission and vision for student success as our lens, we have shifted our expectations for cell phone use for our student scholars.  The brief version of these expectations for all students is as follows: electronic devices will be off and away from the time of arrival on campus to the time of departure at the end of the day.  Please pay close attention of this shift and help your student understand the expectations around cell phone usage prior to the first day of school.  Please review the full version of the Five Oaks Middle School policy with your student.  
  • Fill out this quick google form for your child indicating that you understand the updated school policy. 
  • High school football season is upon us.  Middle school students are always encouraged to attend events.  Please read and follow guidelines for any Metro League event.  
    • Middle school students need to have an adult accompanying them in order to enter.
    • Students may not bring any outside food or drinks, backpacks or skateboards to games. 
    • Students must remain in the stands unless using the restroom or accessing the concession booth.  
  • Picture day is scheduled for September 12, 2019
  • Back to school Night is scheduled for the following dates
    • September 17 - 7th and 8th grade
    • September 18 - 6th grade

Yours Truly,
