Remember our Veterans! Thursday, November 11th, come help say “Thank You” to our Veterans. Oakdale will host a Veterans Day Parade starting at 10 a.m. from the FES Hall to Fish Park; for more information please call Cher Bairos. Let’s salute those who served our country. Let freedom ring! Thank you veterans!


We send out a huge “Thank You” to our First Responders. We appreciate all you do for everyone you serve. Our Valley Home Students and our Valley Home community were very excited to have you come to our School Halloween Parade and to our School Fall Harvest Festival. We offer a very special, and very heartfelt “Thank You” to our CHP, our Fire, and our Sheriff’s Department ... thank you to each of you!

We deeply appreciate the support of everyone who worked so hard to make this year’s Harvest Festival so successful. We are very grateful to our school staff, each and every one of you for your hard work. To each of you who donated, your donation was very, very much appreciated. You made a huge difference and we thank you very much.

We send a big thank you out to Susan Lee, owner and operator of the Valley Home General Store. Susan supports our students and our community all year round; we love you Sue!
