  • 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.

Principal, Oak Manor 6th Grade Center

    Parent Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures 
    ALL parents who choose to bring their children to school and to pick them up MUST follow our AAA proved safety traffic plan.  Drivers may only enter the school area via Kathryn Street, which enters from the east side of Oak Manor.  Students must exit the building at the side walk area and must do so as quickly as possible. This is a no parking zone and drivers must then exit through the west entrance near Tyler Street. There is no entrance at any time from 20th Place with the exception of busses and teachers.
    If you have misplaced your traffic map that was sent home and would like another one, please stop by the office.  It is imperative that all drivers are aware of our requirements as student safety is our number one concern.  Thank you for helping keep our kids safe!
