Campers in the Summer@Oakwood program recently had the opportunity to interact with Lower School Head and Principal, Mrs. Shales' farm animals! Mrs. Shales brought one of her goats and some of her chickens for the campers to meet. The children learned fun facts about each of the animals were taught about their particular needs and proper care. Campers enthusiastically asked questions as they pet and held the animals. The children also had fun sharing about their own pets with one another. Thank you, Mrs. Shales, for bringing your farm animals for our campers to enjoy!

It was a special experience not only for the graduating seniors but also for the younger students who look up to them. We are proud to celebrate our Senior Class's great accomplishment with this Oakwood tradition.
For Oakwood Kindergarten students, the end of the school year is bitter-sweet. Although they have grown tremendously during this school year and are excited about their promotion to first grade, these students have truly enjoyed their time in Kindergarten. Learning came alive in their classrooms. They built relationships with their classmates during playtime and bonded with their teachers, who supported them in their growth. We invite you to watch a video where these students share in their own words what they loved about Kindergarten this year.
