What a great month Oakman has had!!
We were fortunate for the many guest readers who visited throughout the month. Our students had the opportunity to listen to stories, ask questions and get inspired by the successful paths others have taken.
Thank you to all our guest readers during reading month. This includes our visitors, parents, teachers and students. Keep reading!!!
