Orientation Events

Tuesday, August 24 is a day full of orientations for both parents and students. All student orientation events begin at 9 am. As soon as students are settled into their orientation, parents should proceed to parent orientation (details below).

For Students:

  • Kindergarten Orientation, 9 – 10:30 am for ALL KINDERGARTNERS, including siblings of older Live Oak students. This is an opportunity for the new kindergartners to meet their teachers, see their classroom, and spend a little time with their classmates before school begins “for real” the next day. This event takes place in the kindergarten classrooms.
  • Sixth Grade Orientation 9 am – 1 pm for ALL SIXTH GRADERS, new and returning. Lunch will be provided. Students are given valuable information about middle school and they are given the opportunity to begin to get to know their teachers and classmates. This event begins in the courtyard.
  • New Student Orientation 9 – 10 am for all new students in grades one through five, seven, and eight. New students will have a chance to meet their teachers and other new students, see the school, and learn some important things about going to school at Live Oak. This event begins in the Grand Hall West.

For Parents and Guardians:

  • Lower School (kindergarten – fifth grade) Parent/Guardian Orientation 9:15 – 10:25 am for new lower school parents. Parents and Guardians of current Live Oak students do not need to attend. New parents and guardians will learn the nuts and bolts of Live Oak School, meet the Live Oak staff members, and have an opportunity to ask questions. The event takes place in the Grand Hall East.
  • Middle School (sixth – eighth Grade) Parent/Guardian Orientation 9:15 – 10:25 am for all middle school parents, both new and returning to Live Oak. Information about important middle school procedures will be provided. This event takes place in the Gym.

We hope that these orientation events will make the transition into Live Oak a smooth and joyful one for all new families. We look forward to seeing you there!
