5th Grade Day - Tuesday, June 2

Plans are underway for this fun Oakview tradition! Each year our 5th graders celebrate the end of their elementary school career with a day full of fun. The homeroom classes will compete against each other in a talent show and outdoor games. They will come together to laugh, dance and remember all of the good times they have had at Oakview!

We would like to thank Lori Knoblauch for heading up sponsorships for 5th Grade Day. Without support from our business partners in the community, this day would not be possible. With our deepest gratitude, we would like to thank the following for their generous donations:

Harrison Orthodontics


Master Kims Tae Kwon Do
