Principal's Message


Welcome to Oakbrook School, and thank you so much for checking out our website! Oakbrook provides English and Dual Language instruction to all Wood Dale District 7 kindergarteners, first graders, and second graders.

The staff have been hard at work over the summer, preparing to welcome your children to a fun school year of rigorous learning. We look forward to a great 2023-2024 school year and can't wait to see parents and families once again participating in school activities and events.

You are a very important contributor to your child’s growth and education, so I encourage you to become involved with the school and district as much as possible. Consider joining our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to discuss parent interests in the school and perhaps help plan family activities. You can find more information about our PTO and other ways to support your child by clicking on the links located on the left-hand side of this webpage.

In addition to information about the PTO, you can find other parent resources such as links to the District and School Handbooks, teacher contact information and webpages, district calendars, food menus, principal weekly newsletters, and even the process for reporting absences. Please take time to explore these links. They are great resources.

Our teams are committed to helping your children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Of special emphasis this school year are skills in early literacy and math concepts using integrated technological and relationship-building instruction. As our school motto says, we believe our students are “Learners today. Leaders tomorrow.” Foremost, we want students to feel safe and happy at school. 

We are making some finishing touches in the school, and it will be ready to offer a beautiful learning environment when your child arrives the first day. I look forward to partnering with you this year so that together we help children reach their potential.

Most sincerely,

Dr. Theresa Ulrich
