A little drizzle didn't stop Oakwood Elementary students from having a "Blast of Fun" at their year-end celebration. First through fifth grade students played games, signed t-shirts, and had some fun with photo booth props and treats. The celebration ended with a dance party started by the fifth grade students. This events is always a fantastic way to end the school year and welcome the summer break!
Congratulations to our 2018 8th grade class, which was honored at their promotion ceremony in front of friends, family, and the whole Oakwood community. We wish you the best of everything in your future as high school students! Special thank you to the Promotion Committee volunteers!
Oakwood ECE students bid aloha to summer break with a Hawaiian Luau Party. They enjoyed luau-themed snacks and activities throughout the morning. Some of the highlights included lei making, a hula show that ECE faculty danced in and a presentation by Happy Birds, where students learned important facts about parrots and watched them do tricks and talk. Some of the teachers were brave enough to get up close and personal with the parrots and a few even held one on their head! Students had a great time watching and participating in a hula show and especially loved watching their teachers dance. It was a wonderful way to finish the school year.
As the 2017-2018 school year wound down to a close, Oakwood third graders accumulated enough class points to earn a final event together. They spent their final school year hours in an Escape Room trying to break out of 3rd grade! Students worked in teams to race against the clock and tackle math, reading, history, and geography challenges based on concepts they learned throughout the year. Needless to say, they successfully completed all challenges. Third grade was fun! Look out 4th grade, here they come!
