Driving Through a Winter Wonderland


The local forecast is showing a light snowfall at Oakstone Academy on Friday, December 18th from 1:30-2:30PM.

Bundle up in your festive clothes, and don’t leave home without your holiday cheer. Our teachers are excited to throw a fun event for our Oakstone students and family members. Everyone deserves a little merry magic this year before we sled into our winter break.

Email andrea.scahill@ccde.us if you would like to sign up to help with holiday donations (hot chocolate, candy canes, chocolate & treats). Donations are due by Wednesday, the 16th.



5 Tips for a Holly Jolly Experience

1. Holiday Attire Encouraged
We strongly encourage students and family members to join us to add more fun to the atmosphere. Dust off the ugly Christmas sweaters, show off those Hanukkah t-shirts or wear matching rudolph pjs. Throw on hats, antlers, crazy earrings, light up necklaces, or whatever your holiday heart desires. You may even want to go all out and decorate your car or make holiday signs. (tackie = bonus points.)

2. Masks Up, Windows Down
Our team of educational elves will first hand your family a gift box while you stay safety in the car. Then receive special treats, projects, recipes and art at each station. Your teachers will have gloves and masks with sanitizer at each table.

3. Slow Driving & Eyes Peeled (for safety & fun).
Secret messages, eye-spy games and decorations will surround your car as you pull under the awning. Our students and teachers have been making decorations to  set the holiday mood. Keep those eyes wide to spot special details.

4. Say Cheese! 
Has the pandemic squashed your plans for a family holiday picture? Would you love to take a few fun pictures with your loved ones to remember the resilient smiles this year? You’re in luck because Ms. Gina will be hosting winter themed outdoor family photo sessions.

5. Expect Flying Snowballs 
Don’t be alarmed by a fast flying white ball in your car aimed at your children. They are plush and packed with soft stuffing and love. (We cannot confirm or deny if this event was planned as a fun excuse for teachers to throw snowballs at their students.)
