Reading Tutor Volunteers Needed!!

Reading Tutor BooksOakview would not be the school that it is today without our wonderful group of volunteers. Each volunteer job is important, but one volunteer job that makes a lasting change in the life of a student is the job of reading tutor. You do not have to be a teacher to tutor a child! If you want to make a real difference, please sign up to help a child learn to read. You may be the one that gives that struggling student the confidence that is needed to work harder and succeed. If you would like to volunteer to be a reading tutor, please contact Sherrie Brookie, Instructional Coach, at sbrookie@greenville.k12.sc.us.
 
*Tutoring sessions last approximately 30 minutes and days/times of service are flexible.

2018 SC Green Steps Restoring School of the Year!

GreenStepsAward   

Oakview has been chosen as the 2018 SC Green Steps Restoring School of the Year!  The Green Steps Schools program is an environmental education and action initiative that recognizes schools in South Carolina who take annual sustainable steps toward becoming more environmentally responsible.  This award recognizes Oakview's tireless efforts to restore and improve our many established natural habitats:  butterfly garden, nature trail, vegetable garden, popcorn/cotton plots, pecan trees, tree rain garden, composting program, and apple orchard.  From fall and spring Garden Saturdays to classroom lessons and Garden Club meetings, these environments are an integral part of what makes Oakview "A Habitat for Learning"!  We are thrilled at the recognition and excited to continue our students' journey as stewards of our planet.
