This year the theme for the school is ‘Strength of Character’ and the 6 Pillars of Good Character which are Respect, Trustworthiness, Fairness, Honesty, Responsibility, and Citizenship.
It takes strength to resist the impulse to blurt out in class, to not rush to the front of the line, to not react in anger to a classmate, or to do your homework, when you would rather be outside.
We will focus on each strength for about 6 weeks- chapel talks will reflect that strength of character and each classroom will display posters as well as the school lobby as well.
Hopefully by reminding the children to practice Strength of Character and restraint now, in the little things, it will pay off as they mature and begin to examine the bigger things that need attention in their lives.
Our goal continues to be - Feed the mind, touch the heart, and prepare for life!
Oak Arbor School Play “The Pale Pink Dragon”, Friday May 17th, 7 PM.
The kingdom of Caladar is in an uproar! Princess Pinkie has disappeared, a dragon lurks in the forest, and it is presumed that he has devoured the princess….
Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this fun musical presented by Oak Arbor School’s 1st - 4th grade students, including a cameo appearance from our PreK/K! Refreshments served afterwards.
Oak Arbor School participated in this event along with many other schools across the nation and the world, on Friday May 3rd, 2013. Morning chapel was on the subject, followed by student participation in taking a stand against bullying in our schools and community.
What a pleasure it was to welcome our Oak Arbor friends and their guests to our school benefit! Thanks to everyone from the students to the donors to everyone who had a part in making the evening the success it was.
• A strong academic program emphasizing delight in learning provides the foundation for life-long education
• We emphasize the importance of childhood innocence – why and how to value and nurture it, and how it is the basis for the on-going development of conscience
• Education at Oak Arbor includes daily exposure to the spiritual dimension of life in various ways across the curriculum
• We encourage social interaction that supports personal expression and builds self-confidence but without emphasis on competition, fashion, trends
• Students experience a unique variety of useful, educational and fun opportunities for field trips, drama, community service, travel, etc.
• We do these things in distinctive ways, based on a philosophy of education that is guided by our study of the Lord’s Word. What an honor it is to be part of this important work in a community of children, parents and teachers.
Parents are often the best sources of opinions and thoughts about the choice of a school. Check out our Parent video page to learn more.
