Poppy-The Flower of Remembrance

1st-4th graders are learning about the flower of remembrance and how the poppy is a symbol for Veteran's Day. North Oakview Elementary will be hosting a Veteran's Day assembly to celebrate and honor our Veterans on November 10. Artists will be giving handmade poppy flower pins to all those in attendance. We will have close to 300 ready to give and already have some beautiful work created!

Dot Day Success!

All of North Oakview celebrated Dot Day, based on the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds, during the week of September 15th. This day was to celebrate creativity, can-do attitudes, and give students the opportunity to "make their mark". Art classes created their own "stained glass" dots that are being made into chains to hang in the library.

But dot activities were happening all around the building, not just in the Art room. In the library, students learned more about the author Peter H. Reynolds and read another book called "Ish".
Students played dot-themed games and exercises in P.E.
There is even a Dot song that was learned in music class.
You can see our positive, can-do attitude activities all through the halls of North. What a great start to the year!
