  • WWII Enthusiast visits MS Humanities Class

    Posted March 14, 2016

    Hosting visitors in the classroom is a great opportunity to enrich a curriculum and gain a deeper perspective on a topic. Oak Meadow's Middle School Humanities class welcomed retired college professor and Oak Meadow School grandparent, John O'Toole in a series of visits this past month. Mr. O'Toole shared an unparalleled amount of knowledge of WWII with the students, following a career of six decades of research and interviews - and stories he began collecting at age 8 when meeting GIs returning home from combat in the 1940's. Mr. O'Toole shared an in-depth array of WWII facts as well as models of a B-17 fighter plane, while recounting invaluable lesser-known anecdotes of the war. His visit was well-timed with Humanities curriculum on the world impact of conflict and social injustice in the 20th century.

  • Another Successful Science Fair!

    Posted March 8, 2016

    For over 15 years, Oak Meadow School has been presenting its annual Science Fair, comprised of thought-provoking science experiments, conducted by students in grades three through eight. Students begin by observing their world and identifying something of personal interest to study. Using the scientific method, each student forms a question with a hypothesis, designs an experiment, and takes measurable data to determine the accuracy of the hypothesis. Upon completion, students share what they've learned with the community by preparing a visual exhibit and presenting it to fellow students, ranging from 3-year-old's up to 8th graders, as well as to parents.
