Ms. Howell's 1st Grade Poetry Luau

Ms. Howell's 1st grade students had a poetry luau and invited their parents to enjoy this wonderful event with them. Parents enjoyed seeing their children smiling with pride of the work they did with their poetry. Great job students! We are so very proud of you!

Little Patriots

Little Patriots wrapped up their year with a face to face party. A chance for them to be around their "classmates" and have some refreshments. No more zoom class for these littlest students and congratulations as they have completed the program.

Achieving Goals and Ringing The Bell

It is such a joy to hear students ring the bell in the front lobby area signifying that they have reached their goal. That is awesome! We are so proud of all of the students at Oak Grove. Keep up the great work in achieving those goals.
