Campus Spotlight

An integral part of the culture of our campus is the Great Expectations program that promotes a Culture of Respect and Academic Excellence.  This program pairs well with the Oakcrest Motto: “Cultivating Character … Elevating Education.”  Teachers and students strive to practice the 8 Expectations for Living daily and learn to integrate the 36 Life Principles of the Great Expectations program.  GE also endorses 17 Teaching practices that promote critical thinking, speaking in complete sentences, display and celebration of student work, mutual respect, relevant connections between the curriculum and real life, enriched vocabulary, and other positive elements to advance student achievement through continuous instructional improvement. 

Many parents have visited OIS when their child’s homeroom class was leading our daily student-led assembly, Call to Excellence (7:45 am daily).  Each week a different Life Principle is defined, with the class creating a Showcase on Friday that further highlights the Life Principle of the week in real-life terms and actions.  We encourage parents to come visit any day, but especially on Fridays when their child’s homeroom class is presenting the Showcase.  We also incorporate the 8 Expectations for Living into the CTE daily and have asked students to write about which Expectations mean the most to them now and for their future.

The impact of this program on campus has been profound, as evidenced by the positive attitudes of students and staff, as well as the extremely low number of student disciplinary incidences.  The Oakcrest Intermediate staff was able to open the new building with this program and pilot GE for Tomball ISD at the intermediate level.  We recently learned that we earned a GE Progressive status, a rating that less than 5% of first year GE schools achieve!  If you want to learn more about GE, please schedule a visit to OIS, come to the daily Call to Excellence, or read about GE at  www.greatexpectations.org.  Thank you for your continued support of OIS and the GE program on campus.

OIS Great Expectations Model School Announcement

OIS was recently named a Great Expectations MODEL campus! This is the highest distinction that GE bestows on the campuses it supports and coaches. OIS was named a Progressive campus last year, a distinction that less than 5% of GE campuses receive in their first year implementing GE. To be named a Model school in only our second year is quite an astounding feat and we are proud to be held in the company of a school that others want to model themselves after!
