We are a Green School

Fall 2019

Our Oakman students and staff have been busy weeding and cleaning the flower beds around the school during the fall. We are preparing to plant some bulbs now to grow when spring arrives. Any donations are welcome to help the City Beautiful/ Ecology Club.

Lets keep Oakman beautiful!

Walk or Bike to School Day

Oakman’s Ecology Club held its annual walk and bike to school day on October 2 , 2019 encouraging students to save energy, pollute less, and get into the habit of exercising by walking or biking. We had 141 students participate! Our next one is in May 2020.

How Can an Oakman Student Help Our Environment?

You are never too young to help the world that we live in.  Below are some websites that you can visit.  On them, you can learn about many ways to save energy, protect our ecosystem and find out about endangered species and how we can save them.

We adopted a LION from the Detroit Zoo!  His name is Simba.
