On Friday, February 17, Oakside’s “Construction Company” accepted the task of creating a school-wide snow day to help students celebrate collectively reading over 5,000 books so far this year. To kick-off the fun, the event invited students and teachers to do what most do on a typical snow day- that is, stay in their pajamas all day. Teachers catered lessons to the theme and included “snowy” activities to help build students’ literacy, math, and science skills throughout the celebration. In the library, students found books about snow specially displayed, while in gym class they enjoyed taking part in modified snowball fights. In music, songs about snow were sung.

Thank you to everyone who came out to make Oakside's annual Barnes & Noble event a success! Students enjoyed hearing stories just as much as our guest readers enjoyed telling them. Click on the headline above to see a photo album from this event.
Oakside students recently received a special visit from Peekskill High School’s creative writing students. The teenagers visited the youngsters and read aloud to them in small groups. Children were excited to have some time to bond with, “the big kids,” and PHS students enjoyed helping to foster a love of reading in their younger counterparts. Special thanks to Mrs. Jennifer Telesco for sharing these photos with us!
