To Simply Attend

On Wednesday, February 21st, Oak Grove School held its annual Fundraising Breakfast Tea. The theme of this year's event was To Simply Attend. What does it mean to truly attend to something, to make every part of yourself aware of something else, or just to truly perceive what is around you? And, how does that practice of attention fundamentally change how we see, feel, and act... how does it change our world? Click here to visit Oak Grove's Blog to hear from alumni, parents, and staff from this year's event. 

 

Summer Adventures

Oak Grove Trip to Cottonwood Lakes

Oak Grove School continues its popular Summer Adventures with an amazing trip to the Cottonwood Lakes in the John Muir Wilderness.  We spent 6 days exploring the area, swimming in the lakes and taking in the breathtaking High Sierra vistas. 5:00 am sunrise hikes, crystal-clear lakes, moon rises over Cirque Peak, and glimpses of native Golden Trout made this trip truly unforgettable.
