Oakwood Students Work to Raise Funds for Local Families in Need

Our third grade students are asked to think of ways they can earn money for the Oakwood Thanks and Giving community service project. This may include doing simple chores around the house for parents, relatives or friends. Their earned money is then put together and they go on a shopping trip to purchase the needed items. They are tasked with using their math and problem-solving skills to be as cost-effective as possible when purchasing the items.

This week, they took their combined earnings to Nob Hill, and were able to purchase enough items to create several bins containing a complete Thanksgiving meal as well as grocery store gift cards. The bins of food and gift cards were presented to Community Solutions, along with the rest of the bins created school-wide, during our annual Thanks and Giving Celebration.

Third Grade Students Commemorate Veterans Day With White Table Tradition

Oakwood third grade students learned about the "White Table" tradition of setting a small table with a white cloth and one chair in a common dining area to honor our veterans – especially MIAs and POWs – to remind us of their sacrifices and the impact on their families. They respectfully set a "white table" on campus today to serve as a visual reminder to our student body. Students were invited to add the name and photo of a military family or friend who has served, or is presently serving, to their display. To learn more about this tradition and the meaning of each item on the table, you can visit the website of Margot Raven, author of children's book, America's White Table, which Oakwood third grade students read in class.

Medieval/Renaissance Time Periods Brought to Life

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. Games and activities included archery, Shakespeare recitations, 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 even try on some knight's armor. A guest speaker talked to them about how children lived in that time period and how they got their food and clothing. 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.

Outstanding Musical Performance by Oakwood Fifth Graders

Oakwood fifth grade students put on quite a show in their musical performance of "The Great Ghost Chase." A poltergeist haunted an asylum, creating dangerous mischief. To add to the antics, the patients locked up the staff and nobody could tell who was a patient and who was staff. As chaos unfolded the 'Ghostchasers' showed up grooving to the 'Ghostchasers' rap, led by the head Honcho. The number was an audience favorite, as the actors rapped and danced, loaded with their arsenal of kooky weapons. With the nonstop action, everybody from the poltergeist to the cabdriver to the asylum patients did an excellent job of keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
