Patriotic Speech Festival 2013

Last week was The Oaks Academy’s annual Patriotic Speech Festival.  Round one of the competition selected ten finalists from the two fifth grade classes. 

Wednesday evening, these finalists presented speeches from American history, including:

  • Frederick Douglass’ “What is Your Fourth of July to Me?”
  • Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman?”
  • Lucy Stone’s “A Disappointed Woman”


Guest judges were then charged with the difficult task of deciding on the three overall winners. 

Spring Saturday School

While the words “Saturday School” usually do not carry a positive connotation, the case is much different at The Oaks.  Last weekend, students and their parents arrived at school eager to participate in Spring Saturday School’s science-focused learning activities.  These activities included nature drawings, dissections, and a middle school science fair.

Parents were also presented a variety of workshops designed to create a better understanding of The Oaks or cultivate engagement into the school community.  Saturday School provides a unique opportunity for students, parents, and staff to learn together.

 

Nature in Our Own Backyard

The Oaks Academy held its annual 2nd Grade Art Exhibition last Wednesday.  The artwork of over 60 second graders was viewed and critiqued by a panel of guest judges.  After difficult deliberation, five pieces of art were selected to participate in the Holliday Park Natural Images Children’s Art Show. 

The student’s interpretations of Nature in Our Own Backyard will be on display at Holliday Park and Nature Center beginning Sunday, March 8th until Sunday, May 5th.
