Arts Festival (Arts in the Heart of the Grove) - This is a
full day of learning that allows our students to experience
four centers that focus on music, drama, visual arts, and
movement. 2011's theme will be Germany!
Student Showcase - This
performance will gives first grade children the opportunity to
participate as actors, composers & instrument players, and
dancers. The 2009-2010 school year’s theme was Fairy
Tales, the Oak Grove Primary Versions!
This may seem like a fun way to end first grade and move on
to Oak Grove Lower Elementary, but much learning is taking
place!!! Our students compose original music with our
music teacher, Ms. Narada Gaspard, write original scripts
with in language arts class with their teachers, sing new
and rewritten songs, learn to present themselves before
an audience, focus with a group, make meaning from a
script, follow directions and much more!

event that is very similar to a Field Day. Students will
participate in class events (ex. Tug of War, Dixie Cup
Relay, etc) and individual events ( Sack Races, 50 yd
dash, etc). Parents are invited to enjoy the day with
us. Dress for this day is very casual. Students are
encouraged to wear tennis shoes. Sunscreen is also a good
