Welcome to Oakley Elementary

Greetings!  My name is Danny Fusco, and I’m the proud principal of Oakley Elementary School.

At our Kindergarten through fifth grade school we maintain a student-centered approach to serving the needs of the whole child.  Within our diverse school community, we celebrate the myriad of student heritages as we learn daily from one another.  To achieve this, Oakley Elementary is focused on three top priorities:  providing a compassionate school environment for our students and families; providing a global education experience through our dual language program and partnership with the LEAF International; and providing technology integration into instructional unit projects and the Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) Lab.

We have within our school a Dual Language program currently for Kindergarten through 4th grade that provides Spanish language instruction in a dual immersion environment.  We embed 21st century learning skills through the use of digital technologies and the creation of digital learning projects.  As a school community, we actively collaborate with our stakeholders to collectively bring together the facets of local churches, business partners, and school families to support optimal student growth and learning resources and opportunities.  Our compassionate school model is comprised of multiple programs within our school.

For the 2017-2018 school year our staff is very excited about implementing “The Leader in Me” program, which is based on the principles found in Steven Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” We feel that this program will be incredibly successful in our school because of strong parental and community partnerships.  Our school has also been awarded North Carolina’s Green Ribbon school every year from 2014 to the present for our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Program.  Oakley Elementary School is also a Title I school and we utilize this funding to provide reading intervention learning groups through our highly qualified staff; researched based literacy intervention programs; and text material resources to all our classroom teachers.

Oakley Elementary School is a place where we pride ourselves in providing safe, rigorous, and engaging learning environments for our students, our staff, and our parents and guardians within our school community.
