Third grade students at Oakside learned to play the recorder this spring. Using the Recorder Karate curriculum, each time they mastered a song, they received a "karate belt" to put on their recorder. These four Oakside 3rd Graders earned all 9 belts, ranging from "Hot Cross Buns" all the way up to Beethoven's "Ode to Joy"! Congratulations, Oakside Black Belt Recorder Karate Stars!
Oakside students, teachers and parents recently ventured out to Peekskill’s Riverfront Green Park to help clean up the area as part of the school’s community service activity. Though the weather wasn’t ideal, nothing could discourage the clean-up crew from staying focused on their task.
