Welcome to OakviewNational Book Month
Reading has many benefits, including keeping your brain healthy, improving communication, and creating empathy for others. October is National Book Month and Oakview is planning to be 'Wild About Reading" on October 20th. Students and staff can dress in animal prints, or animal themed shirts. Students can earn entries for our book giveaways. We will even have some mystery guests reading to our school throughout the month!

Our classrooms already have some amazing titles for our children to read, but we are excited to announce that each classroom has just ordered $3000 worth of books! That's approximately 150 new titles! We expect those books to arrive in early December and we are sure that students will enjoy them.

Our literacy specialist has put together some tips to help your child in reading. Let us know what types of text you enjoy reading using this link. Enjoy books!

-Dr. Phillip Reavis, Principal
