teacher appreciation week
In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, OASIS students and families provided some Teacher Shout-Outs:
- OASIS has been amazing beyond words. I'd heard in advance that everybody here is truly "the cream of the crop". I did not understand how creamy the crop could be, lol! These people are so caring, dedicated, motivated (and motivating!! Oh, especially motivating!!) And proactive.. they just aren't enough favorable adjectives to describe what an amazing experience they each have made for the students, and the parents too!! OASIS people really are a special breed, and this program is top notch. Highest accolades because there aren't enough words to express this!!! I can't imagine how we would have done without you.
Mrs. Breckner has a unique and effective way of reaching the kids. She "gets" them in a way that most adults do not. She goes above and beyond to help students achieve goals. Finally, she understands that sometimes you need to listen to what is going on with the cat before you can move on to math. Thanks, Mrs. Breckner! You are amazing!
Mrs. Breckner really goes above and beyond with her students. She is always checking in on them to see if they need help.
Dr. Heiman is patient, kind, and encouraging to parents and students. As difficult as it is for our kids, there are days that are even harder for parents. Dr. Heiman has a nice way of letting parents know she understand the struggle and sees the good in us and our children even on the difficult days. Thank you, Dr. Heiman!
Mrs. Stamm - She helped me throughout the past few years when I was struggling with math.

OASIS Alum Spotlight - ETHAN MOUCH
An OASIS graduate has found his favorite place in the world....Poland!
Ethan studied in Poland as part of the Rotary Student Exchange program last year. He has returned to Poland and is finishing his first semester at the Jaiegllonian University in Krakow, Poland. He is studying Global and Development studies in English. Mouch is enjoying meeting students from over ten countries during his studies.
Mouch is very appreciative of his experience at OASIS, “OASIS really helped foster a sense of individualism, and not only that, gave me time to indulge in my interests. It's because I went to OASIS I even learned about a program to do student exchange. That profoundly changed my life, but I don't think it would have been so successful if not for my time at OASIS.”
PRINCIPALs APPRECIATION MONTH
OASIS celebrated National Principals Month in October by giving Dr. Jen Aylward several gifts of appreciation. The staff gave her baskets of vegetables and protein enriched foods to show appreciation for how Dr. Jen helps everyone grow and stay strong! Other gifts included artwork and thank you cards from our students.
