What does it mean to live a good life?
Students from Ms Taggart's class worked on a special project this past month where they worked on answers to the essential questions of "What does it mean to live a good life" and "How does one determine destiny." To do this, they chose from a variety of projects including writing a children's book where they deliver the message in an appropriate way that also follows the steps of the hero's journey. As a culminating event for this project we took a field trip to Appletree 1 Preschool on Blake Lane.
Monday, November 17. All athletes must have an emergency care form for the winter sports coach AND a doctor’s physical dated after May 1, 2014 on file in the Activities Office in order to do preseason conditioning and tryouts. The physical must be recorded on the official Virginia High School League Physical Form. All forms are available in the Activities Office and the athletic website, www.oaktonathletics.org under Files and Links.
Oakton has a very active PTSA. We meet 8 times each school year and work closely with Dr. Banbury and his staff to address issues of interest to the parent community so that we can do our part to help make Oakton HS a great learning environment for our growing children. Through your membership support, we are able to accomplish a great deal. If you are not a member, please join by visiting our website linked below:
