The Oakridge Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) serves as a forum where families, teachers, administrators, and other interested adults discuss ways to promote quality education and encourage community involvement.  It implements and supports many programs and activities to help our children succeed on many levels.  More about the PTA.



At the last PTA meeting, we discussed capacity issues at Arlington elementary schools. Oakridge is one of the largest elementary schools in the County and is already over capacity. It is critical that the Oakridge community makes its voice heard on capacity issues.

Here are three important links:
  • The online APS survey on capacity that was mentioned at the meeting (this short survey is only 6 questions and will take just a few minutes to fill out)
Please take the time to complete the survey online by Tuesday, March 18. It is very critical to our school's future!

Upcoming meetings addressing elementary school capacity:
March 19 - Community Meeting #2 for update and feedback of elementary and middle school options at Williamsburg MS Auditorium, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

March 22 - Community Conversations - Elementary and middle school - Gunston, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm. We strongly encourage attendance at this meeting as there is ample opportunity for one-on-one question and answer time with knowledgeable people.

April 23 - Community Open Forum for feedback and refinement of elementary, middle and high school options at Jefferson MS Theater, 7:00 - 9:00pm. 
It's important that we have a good showing from our school at these meetings, even if you only come for a few minutes. And feel free to show your Oakie pride--wear your Oakridge spiritwear!

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this survey. Our team is happy to speak with you if you have ideas or suggestions regarding the overcrowding issue in our schools, and if you have any questions about our recommendations specifically or general questions to help you better understand the issue. You may contact us through the PTA e-mail, oakridgepta@gmail.com.
