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.

Thank you for a wonderful evening to celebrate volunteer and teacher Appreciation Night with cake, Talented Art Students, Talented Music, and a special book reading by Mr. Thompson!
3rd-5th Grade SOL Testing is right around the corner. Below are some testing tips that will be helpful for your child. On the back is our STATE SOL Testing schedule by grade level. Please do not schedule appointments for your child on their test dates or pick them up early from school on these dates.
