We are pleased to report that though a grant from the John P. Oldham PTO the John P. Oldham school has now subscribed to a newsletter called "Reading Connection" that strives each month to arm often busy parents (and others) with practical tips and advice on how to help their children improve their reading skills.

It has been said that math is “What makes the world go around.” While we could all challenge this statement on a strict word for word basis it would be hard imagine our modern world without mathematics.

Fine Arts studies have flourished here at the Oldham since the Fall of 2004 when our Art and Music departments each received their own dedicated classrooms. (Prior to the 2004-2005 school year both Art and Music subjects were taught essentially off of rolling carts that were wheeled around the school into the regular classrooms.)
