Free Money for Oakwood


Log into your Amazon account, go to Settings, click on Amazon Smile, add “The Oakwood School” as your charity, turn your phone / device to “ON” and start shopping! A portion of every eligible purchase will be credited to our school! It’s FREE money for Oakwood and easy to use. You will need to update these settings twice a year for Oakwood to continue receiving these funds.


Go to the Harris Teeter Together in Education website, register your VIC card to The Oakwood School #3523, and start shopping. Every time you get groceries at Harris Teeter, Oakwood will receive a small portion of the sale! Make sure to re-link your VIC card every year.

Sign up on BTFE.COM and add Oakwood as your school. “Scan” your receipt instead of clipping! If you do have Box Tops clips, send them in a plastic bag to school with your student to give to the Main Office.

A Letter from PSA President, Melissa Ju

Dear Oakwood Community,

Welcome to your Parent Service Association (PSA). We could not support our wonderful school or amazing children if it were not for you.

As the opening Statement of our By-Laws reads, "The Parents of the Oakwood School care deeply about their children’s education, and ALL Oakwood parents and guardians are members of the Parent Service Association… (we organize) the energy and talents of The Oakwood School parents to run programs and events that promote a strong sense of community and enrich the lives of the School’s students, faculty, administrators, and parents."

The PSA Executive Board organizes all members (all parents) to achieve the above mission. We interact several times a month, collaborating ideas, formally meeting with administrative representatives, and informally discussing ways in which we can enrich our school. The moments our children spend at Oakwood will soon become cherished memories. Our desire is to make these some of the very best times for all of us. Events we have hosted to promote Oakwood’s tremendous sense of community include Fall Festivals, International Nights, Bingo Nights, Chili Cook-Offs, Kick Off Events, and Parent Socials. Over the last several years we have raised funds to support Teacher/Staff Appreciation Lunches and Grandparents & Special Friends’ Day. Our funds have also provided grants for a 3D printer, classroom and playground enhancements, and improvements to OASES. We also help to facilitate the system of room parents to help with field trips, class parties and classroom support. At the beginning of this year we especially invite you to consider volunteering on any level.

There is no better way to impact your children’s experiences than to be involved in your school and PSA. We can all make this a great year together! I am truly honored to serve as your PSA President this year. Our volunteer form is listed on the webpage right below. Come join us!

Sincerely,

Melissa Ju
