Daily Announcements

Multicultural Fair
In an effort to help our students gain knowledge, understanding, and an appreciation for other cultures, we will be celebrating Cultural Awareness throughout the month of April.  Students will explore and examine various customs, beliefs, and lifestyles of people from other cultures around the world. On Friday, May 1, 2015, we will be having a “Multicultural Fair”. Our students will have an opportunity to take a trip “Around the World” by purchasing a “Passport.” The passport pays for your child’s admission to the Multicultural Fair, a passport photo, and the exploration of various cultures firsthand, such as artifacts, native clothing, musical instruments, art, and food sampling. The cost of the passports is $3.00 per student. For more information or to have questions answered please contact the Guidance Office at Oakland Primary.
