Oakwood School Fall Open House - A Wonderful Event

On November 13, Oakwood School hosted an Open House for prospective students and their families as well as current Oakwood families who wanted to preview all the opportunities ahead. The day was a wonderful showcase of all Oakwood has to offer, with classroom demonstrations, student performances, and student-led campus tours. This event, the first on-campus Open House in nearly two years, was a true celebration for our school community. We were thrilled to welcome current and future Oakwood families to campus for this special day.

Oakwood will host one more Open House this school year–mark your calendar for Saturday, March 5, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Contact to RSVP.

First Grade Students Celebrate Fall with Field Trip to Spina Farms Pumpkin Patch

Last week, Oakwood School's first-grade students took a field trip to Spina Farms Pumpkin Patch! At the pumpkin patch, the students learned about the different types of pumpkins and gourds, the life cycle of a pumpkin, and how the bees are helpful to the pumpkins. The students also enjoyed a hayride through the many acres of cornfields, sunflowers, marigolds, and scarecrow friends in addition to a train ride that toured through pumpkins of all sizes, shapes, and colors. To conclude the trip, every child picked a small pumpkin to take home!

Summer@Oakwood Campers Learn about Animals

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!
