Welcome to Oakland!

At Oakland we enjoy activities together that encourage academic growth, healthy habits, SOL’s with a kinesthetic approach, and an environment conducive to developing the whole learner.  Every grade level participates in a Resource Day where students are immersed in SOL’s via a hands on approach.  Art, library, music, and physical education teachers guide the children through events directly correlated to the Virginia SOL’s.  We also encourage wellness activities through pedometer challenges and fruits and veggies taste tests during our yearly Fitness and Nutrition event.  In addition, students have extracurricular activities such as ONN News Network, Theater Cafe, Chorus, March Madness, Shamrock Run Club, Odyssey of the Mind, Talented Art, and Talented Music.  Click on the photos below to see our school in action.
