  • Garden Club

    Next Garden Club meeting will be on Friday, September 22nd at 10:30 - 11:30A. Come join us to start planning our fall garden! This coming Friday bring any new seed packets which are recently dated and not F1 hybrids. We are planning on saving seeds, so hybrids do not work well for this. Winter crops include kale, broccoli, Chinese greens, carrots, beets, some lettuces, fall flower bulbs which come up in the spring (crocuses, daffodils, tulips, alliums), etc. 

    In two weeks, we will be putting together our planter boxes! All ages are welcome, but younger children should be accompanied by parent. 

    Questions? Contact Meta @ 754-0532, ext 2247.

  • Teddy Bear Clinic

    Mark Twain Medical Center will be hosting the annual Teddy Bear Clinic again this year for Kindergarten students. Mountain Oaks students are scheduled to go on Wednesday, October 18 from 9A to 11:30A. The hospital hosts these events so kids can meet law enforcement officers, paramedics, firemen, doctors and nurses in a safe, calm environment, so they won't be (hopefully) as scared when an actual emergency happens. Students also learn about healthy eating and lifestyle habits.  For lunch they will be serving pizza, juice, fruit, water and teddy grahams.  You must sign up at the front desk by October 12, 2017 to attend.  Click here for a news article about this event from last year. Contact Jean at 754-0532 ext. 2226 with questions.

  • New: Mountain Oak Parent Seminars - Save the Dates!

    I am very excited to be able to collaborate with my awesome colleagues to provide monthly Parent Seminars at our school. The purpose of the Parent Seminars is to provide families and teachers with resources to help support ALL students!! 

    October 11th, 2017 9:00-10:30A at Mountain Oaks

    We will explore how and when to use reinforcements to motivate learners in all environments.

    Reinforcements increase the likelihood that a behavior will occur again in the future. It is extremely helpful in teaching new appropriate behaviors, and in learning how to decrease inappropriate behaviors. A "Make and Take" activity will take place the following week of this training. Click here for more information.

    November 8th, 2017 9:00-10:30A at Mountain Oaks

    Visual supports and Work systems are used to help organize a learner's environments in a visual manner in order to increase task production and decrease stress and inappropriate behaviors. As adults, we use visual supports and work systems throughout our day, such as calendars, stoplights, instructions on a cake box, hand washing for employees, etc. This training will provide information on when, why, and how to use visual supports. A "Make and Take" activity will take place the following week of this training. Click here for more information.

    I hope you can attend.  Please contact me if you have any questions or ideas regarding the upcoming Parent Seminars. Kathleen Lewis  209-754-0532 x2262

  • Amador County Farm Day

    Each year, Amador County Farm Day hosts nearly 400 students to teach and show them the diversity of products that are made from agriculture. Students spend the day learning about farms, ranches, and how food gets to the table. They also learn about the biodiversity of Amador’s regions, from timber forests to croplands. There are several interactive stations that satisfy state curriculum standards, demonstrating to the children how agriculture gets from the farm to their forks. 

    This is a FREE event, but registration by September 19th, 2017 is required. Parents must provide transportation for their children.

    We will be meeting at the Amador County Fairgrounds at 8:30A on September 26th and be assigned to a series of stations to work through as a school.

    Contact Mentor Teacher Kelsi Williams for more information at
