Our Oakwood 5th graders embarked on their "Specials" field trip this week. This field trip allows the students to participate in their specials (music, art, physical education and spanish) through new experiences. Our 5th graders got to experience art by visiting the Grand Rapids Art Museum, physical education by ice skating at Rosa Parks Circle, spanish by eating lunch at Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican restaurant, and music by attending a music appreciation program put on by the Grand Rapids Symphony. This year, one of our students, Claire Wittlieff, got the unexpected privilege of being the guest conductor of the symphony! Pictured above, Claire is directing the symphony in a Sousa March along with Symphony Conductor Varineau. What a great experience for all of our students!
