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.

    It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Oakbrook School, Dr. Theresa Ulrich. I have many years experience as a teacher and administrator that have equipped me with a great deal  of knowledge and skills to effectively serve Oakbrook students, teachers, families, and community members. Of all my time in education, my favorite roles have been at the building level. I am so happy to be here, serving you and your children.

    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
