  • District Announces School Calendar Changes for 2016-2017

    The state is requiring five additional student instructional days next year. As we did not receive an increase in funding to offset the cost of these days, we had to add a few more 1/2 days to the district calendar. We know that we have many working parents who this affects. (More)

  • Inclement Weather and School Closings

    When it comes to severe weather and the potential for a school closure, I know that the sooner the decision is made the better for staff, students, and parents. Typically, we make a decision to close for inclement weather collectively with Brandywine and Buchanan. Our goal is to make this decision before 6:00am. (More)

  • District Lays Out Strategic Plan

    After months of gathering information from community stakeholders through surveys, workshops, forums and other means, leaders of the Niles Community Schools district have developed a new strategic plan that will help guide the district in reaching future goals. On February 1, 2016, the Niles school board ratified the plan by approving the district’s new mission statement, vision statement, beliefs and goal statements — all of which are components of the strategic plan. “To use a Viking analogy, we wanted everybody to have their oars in the water at the same time and all pulling together,” said Greg O’Toole, school board president. “I think this was critical to getting to that point.”

Welcome To Oak Manor Sixth Grade Center!
Oak Manor is a unique building in that it is dedicated to the transition of our students from elementary school to the secondary experience.  Students are placed on teams for the year, but have a varied specials schedule throughout each semester.  Oak Manor offers 1-1  computing for our 6th graders, who use and apply all kinds of technology applications within their lessons.  
For those of you who use social media, Oak Manor now has an "official" Facebook page.  The page is called Oak Manor 6th Grade Center--not to be confused with "sixth" grade center.  We hope to publish pictures, events, reminders on this page to better communicate with our families. We hope you check us out!
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call or email. 
Adam Burtsfield
Principal, Oak Manor 6th Grade Center

    We hope you enjoy time with your families!

Bullying Awareness

  • Definition of Bullying 

    Defined as repeated, persistent, harmful behavior, where an imbalance of power exists, intended to cause fear, distress, or harm to another person's body, emotions, self-esteem or reputation, that substantially interferes with a student's ability to benefit from the educational environment.

    Examples of Bullying Behavior

    Physicial Bullying is the most obvious-using physical actions to gain power and control over their targets. These would include kicking, punching, slapping, shoving or physical attacks.

    Verbal Bullying is using words in a negative way to insult, tease or put down in order to gain power over someones else's life.

    Cyberbullying is using technology, such text messages, emails or social media by spreading rumors, mean words or lies. These can be spread quickly and anonymously. Internet safety rules for all students should be followed to monitor social media internet safety.

    Relational Bullying exluding someone from joining or being part of a group, whether the lunch table, game, sport or social activity.

    Non-Retaliation/False Reporting:

    Making intentionally false reports about bullying/aggressive behavior for the purpose of getting someone in trouble will not be tolerated. Giving false information or false reporting is considered a form of bullying behavior and could result in disciplinary action.

    We always encourage students to speak with one of our adults at Oak Manor at anytime. For all the prevention we have in place, unless we know or witness a situation it is difficult to know that a child is being bullied. Students may be withdrawn, not want to come to school or may have a change in their appetite or become moody.

    Families can help by teaching students to respect one another, be kind to each other and general manners and empathy. Fostering a childs confidence and self worth and "to do the right thing" will go far. 

    If you believe a bullying situation is happening please call our office at 269-683-7484.
