Dear Oakwood Community Members, It has been brought to my attention that there may be misinformation that is circulating in regard to the 2021 Tax Levy Hearing tomorrow night at 5:15 pm. Therefore, I wanted to let you know that I will be in the Unit Office tomorrow afternoon from 1pm - 4:00 pm for anyone who would like to meet with me to go over the actual levy presentation prior to the hearing. It would be a privilege to be able to meet with our community members to have an informal Q & A prior to the formal hearing. No appointment is necessary. For those interested, I hope to see you tomorrow. In Your Service for Better Schools, Larry Maynard, Superintendent

Why are VALUES important? Glue that holds us together. Ruler & measurement for the standard of our expected behavior. Compass that gives us direction. Magnet that attracts top notch people. Fingerprint that uniquely identifies who we are. Map that gets us to our destination.
