Caution: Children at Play!
Oakview has always been proud of the many different opportunities for students in our outdoor playgrounds--but it was time for some updates! Recently, kindergarten received a few new pieces including a modern version of a teeter-totter, a rope climbing structure, a playhouse with a tunnel, a two-way communication device, and several tricycles. Towards the back of our property, near the fitness trail, our older students received 6 new swings and the very popular P6 game. Each classroom also got two new playground balls to use. If you missed our Live broadcast, you can still see the video by heading to our Instagram page.
These new play structures were made possible by the fundraising efforts of Oakview's PTA over recent years and through the generous donations of Oakview's parents and families. Our largest fundraiser is Boosterthon, which kicked off this week.
PTA and school administrators are making plans now for the next phase of playground upgrades. Be on the lookout for more exciting announcements!

See Something. Say Something.
As we know, the single most effective, preventative tool regarding school safety and security is the See Something, Say Something protocol, which every school in Greenville County utilizes. GCS has updated the icon for reporting threats and bullying to reflect the "See Something, Say Something" campaign and it is being rolled out to all student Chromebooks in the list of icons on their bottom toolbar. It will also be located both in the Oakview homepage icons as well as on the GCS website in multiple locations. While the former icon looked like a traditional “no" symbol to designate no bullying, this new icon serves as a visual reminder to report threats, bullying, discrimination, harassment, and intimidation in line with the See Something, Say Something protocol.
It is critically important that if students see or hear something that is concerning, they say something to a trusted adult or report it by clicking this icon. The icon goes to the See Something, Say Something page where reports can be made.
