At Oak Grove, we acknowledged World Peace Day with a week-long exploration into the notion of peace. Throughout campus, we celebrated Peace Week within the classroom curriculum, through the construction of a collaborative art installation titled “Our Garden of Responsibility.”
The Stanford psychologist, Carol Dweck said: “If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.” How can we extend this philosophy to our larger learning community of teachers, coaches, and staff members?
My time at Oak Grove was brief, just the last two years of high school, but I think its emphasis on living in coexistence with what we often call the natural world really impressed itself on me, as well as the school’s sense, received from Krishnamurti, of a more international and philosophical sense of being in and with the world.
Our Fall camping trips are designed to bring the High School (9th-12th) and the Middle School (6th-8th grade) together early in the year to orient and integrate new and returning students and teachers.
For our first Lizard Talks series of the year, we welcomed Geetha Waters. Geetha, parent of Oak Grove School alum Jayson Waters ’10, is an educator and writer, who facilitates programs at the Krishnamurti Study Centre in Summer Hill, Australia.
Today was our first day of school! There were hops and skips, and hugs and high-fives all around as we said hello to our returning students and welcomed our new incoming students.
Congratulations to our Second Grade Teacher Karen and Science Enrichment Teacher Eric, whose Roxaboxen student project won an IMPACT II award.
