Just before the holiday vacation, Oakside students in Mrs. Hernandez's Grade 3 Dual Language class held a holiday secret snowflake gift exchange and writing celebration. Students shared their narrative writing pieces with their family members and revealed who they had as their "secret snowflake." Students were filled with joy and smiles!
Oakside Teacher Mrs. Martha Lynch would like to send a special shout-out to her Grade 3 Dual Language student, Miss Catherine Fernandez, who, after learning about kindness and empathy in class, decided to cut over 8 inches of her hair to donate to the Children with Hair Loss organization.
Why do we love our local library? Because they’re “out of this world!” Thanks to The Field Library for supporting our Oakside readers by creating a display for the school’s reading program and distributing “rocket response” forms for our students to fill out.

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.
