Spring Book Fair

March is Reading Month, and we've got a lot of great books in our Spring Book Fair!

You can shop online, too!  Here is the link:  http://www.scholastic.com/bf/oakvalleymiddleschool

We appreciate your support!  We gain fresh, new books for our library through this fair!

Oak Valley Goes to Mexico!!

For March is Reading Month, OVMS promoted reading while using a Mexican theme! Students decorated classroom doors by combining two ideas, as follows:

Mrs. McDonald's art class won first place with this rendition of Frida Kahlo reading and dancing!

Mrs. Perez's class won second place with the Reading Fiesta book shelf!!


Mrs. Tapley's class uses a pinata to encourage us to "Hit the Books!"

Let's try to "Taco Bite out of Reading!"
