Oakwood fourth and fifth grade students celebrated the Middle Ages and Renaissance time periods with a day full of hands-on, enriching and educational activities. Students, faculty and parent volunteers donned period-specific attire from elaborate gowns to pirate and knight costumes. Activities included juggling, jousting, painting frescoes, and archery, among others. Students learned all about falconry and were able to see a falcon and a red-tailed hawk in all of their splendor. A medieval weaponry expert held demonstrations and students were able handle weaponry and even try on some knight's armor. After a grand feast, the celebration concluded with a May Pole Dance by our very own fourth grade students and recorder performance by our incredible fifth graders. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible.
Oakwood's first New Enrollment Open House of the season was a big success. Interested families had the opportunity to take a campus tour, meet teachers and students, and observe our learning in action. The Harmonttes performed some musical routines from their upcoming show and fifth graders presented a sneak peak of their upcoming play, Attack of the Killer Grasshoppers.
Oakwood High School Linguistics students spent the day in Monterey meeting with several individuals at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. Soon after arriving, the group sat down with Lama Ranjous, a graduate student in International Policy and Development program, to discuss the role of language and cultural competence in her work and studies. The group also met with Thor Sawin, a professor of teaching English and second languages. They wrapped up the day with a Q&A session with Holly Mikkelson, a professor of Translation and Interpretation. Everyone who attended went home that evening inspired by the words of the individuals at the Middlebury Institute.

Cheered on by the enthusiastic fifth grade class, the high school JV Girls' Volleyball Team continued their drive to a record breaking season! They defeated PCS in straight sets. The fifth graders were invited to attend the game as special guests. They each received an invitation, were treated to a pizza party and participated in a meet and greet with the team before the game. Then they were given spirit items to use to cheer at the game and were seated in the coveted "Hawk's Nest" cheering section.
There is no better investment than surrounding my children with great people who truly want them to succeed in all areas of their life. The best part is watching them achieve that success. Thank you Oakwood!Oakwood Parent
At Oakwood I feel my children are safe and part of community that cares for one another.Oakwood Parent
I appreciate that one of the benefits of Oakwood is the overall lack of distraction to learning. That is a real benefit and allows the students to achieve their best.
