Last Thursday Mr. Marty Barrett and other actors from the Woodruff Center for the Arts presented Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory to our 4th and 5th grades. We loved it! This performance was made possible via a grant from AthFest Educates. We cannot thank AthFest enough!

Last Wednesday Mr. Bertis Downs, manager of R.E.M., stopped by our school. Several of our 5th grade girls interviewed Mr. Downs about the making of R.E.M.'s video, Shiny Happy People. The backdrops from this mural were painted by OAES students. Some of our students were in the video. These murals still hang on our cafeteria walls. We are making a video of our interview. Check back in January for updates.
|After the interview, we watched R.E.M. videos.|
We also received hundreds of new books last week- most of which (thanks to our amazing interns) are ready for you to check out! Stop by- there are hundreds of titles to choose from such as Giant Steps to Change the World, the complete Tin-Tin, Nino Wrestles the World, Mi Frida, Chickenhare, Albert II: the First Monkey in Space, Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, Round Is a Tortilla, and nonfiction sets galore. I hope you love them as much as I do!
