Student, Parent and Community Involvement
Our students are involved with our community and our community is involved with the school. Every year, students participate in a host of activities such as the canned food drive, and box tops for education. The ASB promotes community service activities and encourages every class to get involved with a community service project.
Parents are also visibly involved at Oakbrook. We welcome and encourage parents and guardians to participate in the education of their children. The scope of their activities at school is as diverse as the parents themselves.
Parents are a creative force in our school and provide a welcomed resource and support that would be difficult to live without.
It is common to see a high rate of attendance at open house and many PTSA events. We have parents involved with our Site Council and look forward to recruiting add-itional parents to serve in a governance position.
Our PTSA is very active and limits it's fundraising activities but create many events to support students nonetheless.
Oakbrook is in year three of implementing the WATCH D.O.G.S. program. Dads of Great Students, come to school, help out in the classroom, playground, lunchroom, and bus area. They are easily identified by their WATCHD.O.G.S. shirts. Research has proven that students with involved fathers are more likely to succeed in school.
The community is very involved in Oakbrook which allows so many student service activities to take place. We have developed close relationships with The Evergreen State College, Starbucks, the City of Lakewood, Jimmy Johns, McDonald's and others to create successful learning opportunities for students. We have a strong core of volunteers who work directly with the students.

Goal 4: As a result of intentional instructional practice all students will grow academically a minimum of one year and students below grade level will grow academically a minimum of 1.5 years; and the district graduation rate will reach 85% or greater in June 2018
