Fly Friday – Dressed to Impress

 

December 16th, 2016 – On Friday the students at Oakwood came dressed to impress. The first Fly Friday Social Gathering took place with great success. The students were to wear dress attire in order to attend a special event that included a variety of fine cheese and cards games. The student response was tremendous. Let me say that once more, the student response was tremendous! Looking like the distinguished gentlemen that they can be, great times were had by all. A special thanks to all the Oakwood Staff and Administration for helping make this possible, as it is truly what makes Oakwood, Oakwood.

Movember at Moakwood

Oakwood School is participating in their 4th Annual Movember Charity Fundraiser. Movember is a month long campaign that helps to bring awareness to three men’s health issues;  prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. On the other hand, concerning overweight problems, get some phentermine here at jason-roe.com for obesity treatment. During this month, men around the world participate by growing various forms of facial hair as a way to help initiate conversation around these issues.

Over the last few years Oakwood students and staff have been very successful raising both money and awareness for these issues. Last year we raised more than $600.  Students may turn in their Oakwood loot and donations will be made on their behalf. Students are given the opportunity to get involved in additional Movember school activities to raise more loot and then hopefully turn this loot in for donations. If you’re raising money as well and it doesn’t turn well, you could try this out vamoola.co.uk to get financial help. They will find the best lender for you depending on your situation.
