INCLUSION WEEK AT OES!

INCLUSION AWARENESS 

December is Inclusive Schools Month!  

WHAT IS GOING ON AT OES: 

Next week – the week of December 3 through December 7, we’re going to be participating in a few different activities to highlight inclusion.  

  • We will be holding a CONTEST, in which your kids will have the opportunity to share a video or story about how they have been kind and inclusive towards another student or students at Oakton Elementary.  

  • Additionally, each class will be making a poster this week about ways the students can be more inclusive -which we will hang in our hallways- for everyone to see and enjoy.  

  • Students will also provide different ideas on inclusion on the Panther TV during morning announcements.

We look forward to seeing the ideas our kids share with our school community!

Thank you for your support!

INCLUSION WEEK CONTEST AT OES!

Inclusion Awareness Week Contest!

December 3-7, 2018 is Inclusion Awareness Week nationwide, and Oakton Elementary is a proud participant!  In honor of Inclusion Awareness Week, the PTA Special Education Committee is hosting a contest.

All OES students are welcome to enter!

TO PARTICIPATE:

Write a testimony about or create a video reenacting a time you participated in or witnessed students showcasing the spirit or the power of inclusion. Inclusion is the act of including and welcoming someone who may feel excluded from the community. It could be because of disability, race, gender, age, size, socio-economic status, or any reason really, that makes them feel lonely and unwelcome.

  • The testimony should be no more than 2 pages long (12pt font, double spaced, Arial font).

  • The video should be a maximum of 5 minutes long, and 200 MB in size.  Accepted formats:  AVI, FLV, WMV, MOV, MP4.  Cite background music and/or composer if any.

All submission must be received by Monday, December 10, 2018. All students are allowed to submit individual entries, or to collaborate in a joint entry, and may seek the help of parents or older siblings.

To submit your entry digitally, email your testimony or video to special.education@oaktonPTA.net.

To submit a hard copy, deposit it in the “Inclusion Awareness Week Contest” box in the front office.

Winners will receive a Ben & Jerry’s gift card!
