Starting on Nov. 3 and ending on Dec. 15, Wright Library will be offering a series of programs of “Folktales around the World” for homeschoolers grades 1-6 on consecutive Mondays at 1 p.m.
Activities including folktales being read to the group, a craft, and a snack based on seven different countries and regions including Australia, Russia, the West Indies, Iran, Vietnam, Japan, and Brazil. Books related to that day’s topic will be available for check-out. Children do not need to live in Oakwood to participate, and parents are welcome to stay. All programs will meet in the Library Meeting Room
Hosts sought for neighborhood meetings
The Oakwood Board of Education is committed to staying in touch with our citizens. As part of that goal, the school district holds two neighborhood meetings per month. The main purpose of the meeting is to engage in conversation about our schools with our community members. Neighborhood meetings are a unique chance for residents to meet in a comfortable setting with Dr. Mary Jo Scalzo, Superintendent of the Oakwood Schools, and board members. Dr. Scalzo usually asks one question for community input, but the focus of the rest of the meeting is an open discussion about our schools. We are looking for Oakwood citizens to host neighborhood meetings in their homes. There is minimal work involved.
Your task is to invite your friends and neighbors to attend the meeting and put out a plate of cookies. We do the rest! The available meeting dates and times follow. If you are interested in one of these dates, please contact Sandy Maresh at the Oakwood Board of Education Office (937) 297-5332.
