One of our students favorite activites is working with Jason Shelley on Speech Therapy. He is so much fun!
Santa Clause (aka Matthew Harding a student in Olivia Ward's classtoom at Springville High School) merrily made the rounds through the hallways of Oakridge School and Springville High School shouting HOHOH, letting everyone know that the Christmas season will soon be upon us.
Please join us on November 7, 2014 at 7 pm for a night of music for Oakridge School Benefit Concert. We have some wonderful talent performing for us to help us reach our goal of $10,000.

Kjersti Jones is a technician in Tasha's class and she is VERY talented. She brought her violin and played for the students. Needless to say both staff and students LOVED it!
Christopher is a student in Tasha Lewis’ class. He writes by using a tool called, a braille notebook. This is like a computer without the monitor. He is able to write not just words of sentences, but full papers and stories. It also allows him to save his work so that if needs be he can come back to it.
There are even more new faces here at Oakridge. An additional technician was hired on for each individual classroom. We are excited to have them join our Oakridge team and continue in making this year great!!
Field trips are always fun! Recently Oakridge went on a field trip to BYU where some of the students were able to swim with BYU students while others had open gym time and one on one time with a BYU student. These BYU students participate in a program called “Gym Kids”. This is a great opportunity for the students to be social, play, and just be themselves.
Gym time is loved by all students. It gives the students, technicians, and teachers time out of the classroom. It also helps everyone get their wiggles out! Recently Oakridge was able to use one of the gyms at Springville High School, where there was plenty of room to play volleyball and play with the parachute.
