Dear Oak Grove Families and Friends,
As we draw near to the end of our semester and reflect on the experiences and accomplishments of the past three months, we are humbled, grateful, and thrilled to be a part of this school and its community. Just a few highlights: High School Showcase, Open House, El Capitan Trip, Day of Reading, Back to School Night, Peace Day, Ojai Day, Harvest Party, Parent Work Day... and all of the wonderful things that happen in our classrooms every day. Thank you all for everything you do, with special thanks to our fantastic high school students and their amazing showcase that occurred Friday, December 3rd. What a treat!
