Thank you Oakwood students and families for making the very best of a challenging school year. Resiliency is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. Our students have demonstrated their resiliency by re-engaging in academics and remaining active in athletics and art opportunities. We could not be prouder of the achievements of our Oakwood students over this past year.
Congratulations to our 8th grade class! It has been a pleasure to serve you for the past two years. We wish you well as you move forward to becoming the Freshman class of GlenOak High School. You will do great things in your future. Your opportunities are limitless!
