The first day of school was a great success thanks to our teachers, staff, and our wonderful parents. The teachers spent many long hours preparing their rooms for students and everything was set-up, organized, and ready to go. It was thrilling to see the children’s excited faces as they greeted their friends and new teachers. I had so much fun watching students look for their names outside classrooms in anticipation of new adventures in learning.
I was in a wonderful position to watch a great transformation take place over the past few weeks. All summer long the halls have been empty, classrooms vacant, and bulletin boards bare. It has been exciting to watch as teachers came in to organize, decorate, put up colorful boards, and plan for the arrival of their new class members. Then Oakwood finally came fully alive with the arrival of the students. They make this school such an exciting place to learn and grow.
We are looking forward to another wonderful, successful year. Thank you for all your efforts in supporting us at Oakwood. Your help and backing enhances everything we do for our children.
