Not only does our school have a whole new look thanks to extensive renovations, but we are now known as Oakdale: A School of Global Communicators! Our entire school is participating in developing their communications skills and taking up their role in the world community.
As part of this school wide push our experienced reporters are playing the role of mentors to their classmates. They are charged with the mission to help anyone learn to write an article for the Oakdale Eagle by answering the 5 W’s : Who, What, Where, When and Why.
This is also the first issue developed with our new partners, a communications class at the University of Alabama. We had two great students come help our students edit their articles. Also the entire UA class is developing a new look for the Oakdale Eagle because our school is now Oakdale Elementary, a School of Global Communicators.
