Oak Park is participating in this State Farm competition. To vote go to http://www.celebratemydrive.com and register with as many email addresses as you would like and search for Oak Park!! Voting has begun and please have all of your students vote every day!
Celebrate My Drive is about – celebrating this big, new life of freedom that comes with a driver’s license. Part of that life means making smart choices behind the wheel, which is why we’re spreading the message of 2N2® – 2 eyes on the road, 2 hands on the wheel. It’s a simple habit that can reduce distracted driving and help new drivers build confidence on the road. Oak Park could win $100,000 or $25,000 Grant for your high school, and maybe even one of two Grand Prize concerts featuring GRAMMY® Nominated The Band Perry.
All 9th, 10th, and 11th graders students pictures were taken by Reed Portrait Group. Order forms are in the main office if you still would like to order pictures. Forms can be turned in at Oak Park or at Reed Portrait Group (7821 N Oak Trfy, Kansas City, MO).
AFTER SCHOOL SUPPORT - TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY
Additional support will be available every Tuesday and Wednesday in the Media Center, until 4:30, for any student interested in working collaboratively with other students, receiving help from teachers, or working quietly. Transportation is available at 4:30 but passes must be obtained in the Main Office in order to ride NKCSD transportation home.

.NEW ACADEMIC RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS
Academic Resource (AR) is designed to give students timely support in an individualized setting. Juniors and Seniors will have an opportunity to use this time as they see fit as long as they are meeting expectations with regard to grades, attendance, and behavior. Through this intervention time, we are committed to increasing academic achievement during the school day.
NEW ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES
High school students whose attendance falls below 90% in one semester will receive a percentage deduction by course. If the student or parent feels that justifiable or extraordinary circumstances have contributed to not attaining the 90% threshold, the student and parent may appeal to the Attendance Review Committee.
