A Letter From the Principals
Sheri Shirley, Principal
Welcome Families! We are honored to serve as leaders of Oakland Heights Elementary School. Oakland Heights Elementary is located in Russellville, Arkansas, a community of 27,000. Oakland Heights has a culturally diverse population of 450. We are a K-4 school. Oakland students have many diverse opportunities to participate in school and community projects. Second through fourth grade students have an opportunity to participate in an after school dance program called STEPS. In this program, students learn tap, jazz and ballet, and participate in a recital at the end of the year. Oakland students attend a science lab each week to use hands-on projects to learn about engineering and other science concepts. Many students participate in daily enrichment activities at Oakland. Some of these units have included studying heroes that have survived in harsh conditions, learning about Arkansas, studying photography and life skills such as sewing and cooking.
Oakland Heights is a learning community that is committed to bringing high levels of success for all students. We recognize that it takes all of us to raise a child. We look forward to working with you!
