  • Oakside's "Out of This World" Literacy Kick-off

    Oakside students are reaching for the stars and have accepted a challenge to read 10,000 books by the end of the school year! To kick-off their literacy initiative, the school put on a play which embraced this year's theme, "Reading Takes You Out of This World." Student actors and actresses showed their peers the amazing power of books by recreating imaginative scenes from familiar stories. Special thanks goes out to The Oakside Reading Team teachers (Tara Tierney, Beth Irving and Christine Hirsch) for organizing the event, and to the day's guest actors Principal Staci Woodley and Superintendent Dr. David Mauricio.
