Oakwood celebrated the many cultures of its community through entertainment and food sampling at the biennual International Festival. The festival featured musical performances representative of Scottish, Indian, Ukranian, Japanese, Mexican, and Filipino heritage. Many numbers were led and choreographed by our talented students. Students wearing traditional garb paraded across the stage proudly showcasing cultures from around the world. The festival concluded with food sampling from many countries including India, England, Italy and Middle Eastern countries. This gave students the opportunity to try many new dishes.

The Oakwood community gathered for the annual Freedom Festival – Oakwood's school-wide celebration of patriotism. Students honored our country and our veterans with grade level presentations which included patriotic songs and videos produced by students. Veterans and members of the military had special VIP seating and were honored with a song especially for them, "American Heroes."
Oakwood 7th grader, Ayana W., was recognized by the County of Santa Clara for her Synopsys and California State Science Fair achievements at a Board of Supervisors meeting in December. Forrest Williams, board member and past President of the Santa Clara Valley Science and Engineering Fair Association (SCVSEFA) and Supervisor Mike Wasserman presented Ayana with a commendation and congratulated her on her STEM success. Congratulations, Ayana!
The second grade book drive collected a total of 1,117 books for the El Toro Club House in Morgan Hill, which supports their "Reading Hour." This program matches community volunteers with youngsters to read stories. At the end of the hour, each child is given a book from the donations, which helps build a child's personal library. Second grade class representatives visited upper school classes to spread the word, students at our after school care did a lot of the counting and sorting of books and the entire Oakwood community contributed to the collection. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to make this project a success. Way to spread the spirit of giving, Oakwood second graders!
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

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.
