Welcome to Blue Oak
Blue Oak Elementary, home of the Bulldogs, is a TK-5th grade school located in Cameron Park, California. Our school has a longstanding reputation of being a school focused on students, building community, and academic excellence. It doesn’t take long to feel and enjoy the positive climate and family atmosphere.
Blue Oak was built in 1989 as the Cameron Park community hit the housing boom. Since that time we have served as a neighborhood school for our local families. We serve approximately 450 students from the surrounding neighborhoods.
Blue Oak Elementary has one focus, our students. We pride ourselves in the development of the whole child and acknowledge that all students have different strengths. Knowing that students are more successful when they feel connected to the school, we have selected programs to insure that students are able to learn in ways that interest them. Our core reading and math program are instructed in a variety of ways to insure that students are provided with the appropriate support and opportunities to learn from where they are. We also know that students need support in social-emotional growth, which is why we have a counselor on staff.
Blue Oak also teaches Core Values as we believe that a focus on these character traits in the early years will help the students to develop positive habits. The Core Values are Responsibility, Respect, Courage, Gratitude, Perseverance, Trust and Honesty, Kindness, and Positive Mindset and Healthy Choices. These core values are taught in every classroom using literature and art to help deepen the students’ understanding. Students demonstrating excellence in or effort towards these Core Values are recognized at assemblies during the school year.
At our school, students in grades four and five are able to join the band which is taught by our district band teacher. Other enrichment opportunities include student leadership, peace patrol, grand greeters, cross country, after school sports teams, and a number of after school classes including hip hop dance, Lego Club, Early Engineers, Robotics, and a cooking class.
Committed staff, loyal parents, and involved community members work as a team to insure maximum student success and growth. Volunteers are an integral part of our school community. Numerous hours are volunteered on a monthly basis as parents and community members work with our students in the classroom. Our PTA works closely with our community to plan and coordinate fun family events that help to enrich our school culture. They also raise funds that bring the students exciting and enriching assemblies, contribute to our technology footprint, and provide a visual arts program.
Blue Oak Elementary prides itself in keeping students as our focus and priority, every student, every day!
