Kindergarten Students take a Creative Journey to the New World

During their remote learning lessons, the Oakwood Kindergarten classes have finished their Christopher Columbus history unit. As a bonus activity, they could re-create one of Columbus' boats, the Nina, the Pinta, or the Santa Maria, and either a telescope or a compass, with their family. Many of them have been acting out the journey at home, and we love the video that this Oakwood family created to commemorate their experience.

They understand that learning online can be challenging and have worked to present the information clearly, giving students the tools and knowledge needed so they can be successful during their independent learning time. Upper School faculty are even using zoom technology in their classes to provide breakout discussion groups.

Oakwood Brings the Thunder at New Athletic Center Grand Opening

On Monday, November 18, Oakwood School's newest campus addition, the Athletic Center, officially opened with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and All-School Spirit Rally! Michelle Helvey greeted the eager community in the Athletic Center Quad to cut the ribbon for another jewel of our campus. Students, staff, and guests proceeded inside and marveled at the size of the new gymnasium before making their way to their class' assigned seating areas. Athletic Director Kort Jensen welcomed the crowd, and explained to them that this newest facility is so much more than a gym, but a true athletic center where they will enjoy locker rooms, team rooms for game strategy, weight and cardio rooms, and a concessions stand! Oakwood's new mascot finally made its debut and Mrs. Helvey announced its name--Thunder! Kort Jensen then asked all middle and high school athletes for the 2019-2020 school year to please stand in the bleachers for our community to honor them and their hard work and dedication to their various sports! Students were able to participate in a shoot-around on the court with thunderous cheers from the entire student body and our new Mascot! High school student-athletes then led students from kindergarten through 12th Grade on tours of the facility, pointing out the various spaces and answering questions from inquisitive minds. The morning ended with high fives and hugs from Thunder and each student taking home a brand new Oakwood Hawks pennant flag!

Huzzah! Medieval and Renaissance Day Brings the Middle Ages to Life

The Middle Ages and Renaissance came alive at Oakwood for our fourth and fifth-grade students. In this much-loved tradition, students were immersed in 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. Games and activities included archery, Shakespeare recitations, art, and jousting. Students learned all about falconry and were able to see and interact with falcons and owls. A medieval weaponry expert held demonstrations and students were able to handle weaponry and learn the process of becoming a knight. 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. And a special shout out to the organizations who participated: Davenriche European Artes School, Full Circle Falconry, and Predator's Archery.
