Would you like to feel more relaxed at the end of the day?

Answers to:

©       “How do I get them out of bed in time to catch the school bus?”

©       “How can I stop my children from bickering and fighting?”

©       “How do I get my children to help with the chores without an argument?”

©       “Is there a way to discipline my toddler in public without creating a scene?”

©       “How can I get my teenage daughter to come home at the agreed-upon time?”

©       “How do I get him to stop spitting his peas and whining at dinner?”

………and many other day-to-day parenting frustrations.

This is done on site in a mobile dental clinic.

As a school we value the community's generous donation of time, materials and funding to enhance educational opportunities for all children. The assistance of individual or group donations has enabled our school to accomplish far more than it otherwise could have. The old African proverb states that “it takes a village to educate a child.” On behalf of the Oshkosh Area School District, we thank our many donors for becoming a part of our village.
If you would like to make donation, you may contact the school principal at 920.424.0165 or via e-mail at Donations in any amount will be accepted and the funds will be held in a donations account with the district business office until the total amount is received for an item. Here is a list of some ideas:

  • new or gently used books for classrooms (grades K-5)
  • classroom subscriptions to Scholastic News, Time for Kids, or another non-fiction resource
  • PBIS initiatives
  • fieldtrips
