Thank you to the Cultural Arts PTA for an amazingly interactive and entertaining show!

Our Kindergarten students took center stage as the Nutcracker performance came to life at Oakwood Primary Center! Thanks to the Cultural Arts PTA, students at Oakwood enjoyed both spectating and participating in this interactive performance that brought excitement to the start of this holiday season. Our youngest students dressed up in colorful costumes, danced and twirled their way around the room as they retold the story of the Nutcracker, a fantasy about a girl who befriends a nutcracker and battles against an evil mouse king. To prepare for the performances, students rehearsed and perfected their routines with professional dancers during the day and showed their talents at an afternoon performance for their first and second grade friends. 

A special thanks to the Oakwood PTA, Oakwood’s Music Educator, Ms. Luella Pinelli, our Kindergarten Teachers and all of our Kindergarten students for sharing your talents with the Oakwood Family. It was certainly a wonderful and magical event!
