First Day Memories

On August 28, Oakwood Middle and High School students returned to the secondary campus for their first day of school. The excitement included the annual welcoming of new 7th graders through a tunnel of gleeful seniors at the year’s first Town Meeting, which was full of introductions from student groups, teachers, and administrators. Headmaster Jim Astman once again set a positive tone for the year by reciting key excerpts of our Statement of Philosophy, and Principal William Perkins Tift offered warm words of welcome to all.

The following day, led by the new administrative team of Principal Denise Ross and Assistant Principal Kevin Golden, Oakwood elementary campus came alive as students reunited with old friends, met their teachers, and excitedly took their places in new classrooms. After our brand new kindergarten class arrived on campus to start on their Oakwood journey, new Oakwood parents were welcomed at an orientation and welcome in the Play Space.
