Principal's Report - Phillip Reavis

Totem Poles

If you drive through the Kindergarten entrance car line, you will notice a "punch of color" was recently added to our school grounds. Second grade students participated in a two week long unit which combined their study of animals and the visual arts. Students created a visual representation of a habitat that was studied during their unit by carving it into a clay slab. The artist, Shane Bryant, combined the students' pieces to create class totem poles. Our second graders had a wonderful time getting to show their knowledge!

Parent Report Card

As we cross over into the second semester of the school year, how would you rate YOUR school performance as a parent this year? As parents, we can sometimes get overwhelmed by the many demands on our time and we lose sight of the basics. To refocus your efforts, I invite you to grade yourself (or have your child grade you) using Oakview’s Parent Report Card!

https://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/oakview/Upload/uploads/1617Parent%20Report%20Card.pdf

As you review your “grades” on the Parent Report Card, I encourage you to reflect on ways to improve your parenting. As always, I appreciate the active and vital role you all play in the education of the children we serve. I am certain that many of you will make the “honor roll!"
