With Common Core, there is often lots of negative attention focused on "new math" when in fact the focus is now more on the "why and how" instead of the "what."
The following post from a recent blog was a good read and pretty accurate description about the positives. You are encouraged to check it out: CLICK HERE - Common Core is Not the Enemy!

Oka is proud to offer two options in helping gather needed school supplies and donations. Oka Elementary is partnering with Brick by Brick, a non-profit organization which offers the opportunity to purchase school items directly on-line, with items generally 50% below retail price, while helping support Oka, all at the same time. This allows families to avoid shopping and waiting in lines, while offering the chance to complete your back to school shopping in less than two minutes! If your preference is to print out a supply list and visit retail stores in our community, you are welcome to do that as well. Please click on the Grade Level below, in order to review suggested supplies and donations for the 15-16 school year.
