Lower School


Welcome to Oak Mountain's Lower School 


Can you believe it's already March? How quickly time is passing by!  We are having a very large number of interested families visiting us already. Exciting opportunities are here on The Mountain, and I am thrilled you are a part of it. I am also very thrilled to share our great school with so many new families.

Our Winter Olympics last month was so much fun! We had some great parents who helped us out, making the day fun for all.

March is very busy, so please check the school calendar daily. Here are some key events to watch for:

Auction!! Party Like it's 1988! Please join us for our 30th auction this year at Sunset Hills. You should have already received your invitation. If you have never joined us for our auction please consider doing so this year. The Lower School has some excellent class projects, and you do NOT want to miss out on the fun!

STEAM Night  Thursday, March 22, from 5:00-6:30 in the gym. Feel free to invite your friends, too! We will have a variety of stations for students and their families to visit and experience engaging activities. The students will be given a "Passport" to be used to check off all the stations visited.

Lower School Dances are also held this month. The Daddy Daughter dance will be Tuesday, March 13, from 6:00-8:00.    The Mother Son dance will be held Thursday, March 15, from 6:00-8:00, too. A huge Thank You to Sandy Newell for organizing this event for us. Proceeds from these dances go toward extra things for our students. In fact, the chicken coop was purchased with funds from the dances a couple of years ago.                                              

Thank you for your support of our first Boosterthon! This was such a great experience for our school.
Career  Day: Thank you so much for sharing your careers with our students. It is always a treat for our teachers and students when our parents come and spend time with us at school. Many parents came to speak to our Lower School students. Our older students also enjoyed our Career Expo as they learned about a wide variety of career possibilities. 
Hall of Presidents: All are welcome to join 3rd Grade's Hall of Presidents and Famous People on Wednesday, February 21, from 8:15-9:30. Each 3rd grade student selects a person to research, then they dress up like that person and share what they learned. They have worked very hard on this, and you won't want to miss it!
Auction: Please mark your calendars to attend this year's auction, Party Like It's 1988! This year's auction will be held at Sunset Hills Country Club on Saturday, March 10.
STEAM Night: Please join us in the gym on Thursday, March 22, from 5:00-6:30 PM. There will be a variety of stations set up for students and their families to experience.
