Camp Invention


Camp Invention is coming to Oakview this summer! What is Camp Invention? Camp Invention is where BIG ideas become the next BIG thing!  Local educators lead a week of hands-on activities created especially for elementary school children. Boys and girls spend time pushing the limits during high-energy games, working with teammates to construct a freestyle racing cart and taking apart electronics to assemble something one-of-a-kind. Lessons explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Don’t miss out on brand new challenges.  For information, call 800.968.4332 or visit

Camp Invention will be held at Oakview August 10 - 14 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.The cost is $220. Sign up forms are available by clicking this link .

We have also been awarded a large amount of scholarship money to help offset the cost for families. You can find that application form here .

We are so excited about this program!

Last Day of School

The last day of school is Thursday, June 11. Students will be dismissed at 12:19 p.m. A brown bag lunch option will be available for students wishing to purchase a lunch that day (rather than bringing one from home). Transportation will contact parents to notify them of drop-off times. Please note - not all buildings will be dismissed at the same time. Please check the district website for dismissal times for our other buildings.
