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.

Students are our #1 priority, and as parents, your opinions matter to us.
That’s why you are invited to share with us how you feel your child’s school is doing.

Students in fourth grade completed a planet simulation with the Gifted Resource Teacher. Students modeled the distance from the sun using one toilet paper square for each astronomical unit. Fruits and other foods were used to model size with a honeydew melon representing Jupiter and a tiny peppercorn for Mercury.
We just harvested parsley and we are getting ready for strawberries. We also have corn and beans growing, yum!
