  • Students Perform at Littleton Nursing Home

    Posted April 1, 2015

    This week, music teacher Steve Pixley and OMPA Community Service Chair Lyn Goldman brought students to the Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley in Littleton for the first of two community service performances. The performance included a mixture of band pieces as well as an individual vocalist. In addition to sharing their talents, students had an opportunity to socialize with the very receptive and appreciative residents. Afterwards, students reflected on the various benefits of this experience, including cross-generational social interaction, preparing pieces for a meaningful goal, and gaining experience presenting themselves formally and elegantly in front of an audience of strangers. Accolades to our students as they nurture the world around them!

    This performance is part of an ongoing effort to create an awareness at Oak Meadow, both among the students and among the parents, for community service. The next nursing home concert will be at Westford House on April 15th.

  • MS Collaborates to Build Living Wall

    Posted March 27, 2015

    The walls are alive at Oak Meadow! At least one of them is. You can see it in the hallway connecting The Rizzi Center to the Middle School next to the Peace Garden. As of Thursday, March 20th, Oak Meadow is now the steward of a new permaculture science initiative called a "living wall," or sometimes called a vertical garden.

    The project originated as a collaboration with Lawrence Academy as part of their Winterim curriculum in which students work on volunteer projects all over the world. English teacher David Smith along with his son Trevor who owns the business and nine high school students partnered with 17 Oak Meadow Middle School students to make the wall a reality. Together they built the stainless steel wall that reaches to the ceiling, filled it with dirt, and dug in 72 herb plants including parsley, sage, rosemary, oregano, and thyme. What a terrific way to welcome in SPRING after this very hard winter!

  • Science Fair Showcases Student Ingenuity

    Posted March 4, 2015

    For as long as institutional memory can serve, Oak Meadow has been presenting its annual Science Fair comprised of thought-provoking science experiments conducted by students in grades three through eight. Depending on their interests, students can begin working on their Science Fair projects as early as the start of the year. 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 and presenting it. Not only does the individual student benefit from in-depth exploration, but so, too, does the community from learning more about this world we all share. “Looking at the world with a sense of wonder and awe is something that children do naturally. It’s the way they are made,” said Science Teacher Kirsten Wright. “Science Fair promotes discovery of the process of learning, as well as the content. Maria Montessori, a scientist herself, recognized the importance of the discovery process.”
