Food Service Team Earns a Perfect Score of 100 . . . TWICE!
Congratulations to Oakview Elementary School’s food service team!  As required annually, our kitchen is inspected by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control as well a second inspection by EcoSure, a third-party auditor that reviews all aspects of sanitation and food safety in the kitchen/cafeteria. These inspections provide an unbiased evaluation of the status of our kitchen and employee behaviors based on current food safety guidelines.  We are proud to announce that Oakview’s kitchen and its staff earned a remarkable score of 100 on EACH inspection!  Congratulations to “Miss Rena” and her team!

Fellowship Greenville Church Donates Choral Risers
Fellowship Greenville Church donated choral risers to Oakview!  The four sets of risers are valued at $6,000 and will replace the ones we’ve used since the school opened in 1995.  We are grateful to Matt Rexford and the church for their tremendous gift and show of support for the arts in our school.

Oakview's Nature Trail Has Gone Digital!
Last year, Garden Club students researched 23 different trees found on the nature trail.  They then used Microsoft Publisher to design each sign and added a QR code which links visitors to more information about that tree. Finally, Steve Craig, an Oakview parent, graciously volunteered his time and skills to print and install the signs on our trail.  Take a phone or other device, download a QR scanning app, and enjoy a relaxing and educational walk through our trail!

Makey Makey
Third grade students made music out of cardboard, aluminum foil, and shower curtains as part of a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) integrated unit!  Students used Makey Makey technology (search on You Tube to learn more) as they created, coded, and performed songs on their homemade instruments!  Click here to see the excitement of this real world activity for students.
