Programs & Enrichment

Scripps National Spelling Bee

Students at Oakcrest Elementary School have the opportunity to compete academically in the Scripps National Spelling Bee each year. Representatives from each class in grades 1-3 compete head to head for grade-level championships. Students in grades 4-6 compete for the school championship in addition to grade-level championships. The school champion and runner-up are eligible to compete at the regional bee for a shot at the national bee in Washington, D.C. Study lists will be posted online when they come out (usually in late August or early September). School championships are held two or three weeks before the regional bee which typically takes place in mid-late March. Watch your emails and our website for more information!

STEM Fair

Students in sixth grade have the opportunity to compete in our school’s annual Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Fair. The top 15 projects are referred to the District Fair, and winners there are invited to the annual Regional STEM Fair at Brigham Young University. Our students have a history of success in these competitions. No pressure, but we encourage you to start thinking early about a project that would be meaningful and enjoyable to your child. Our fair is typically held in January or February. For additional information on STEM Fairs, check out this district link: https://elemscience.jordandistrict.org/stem/

Great Artist

Oakcrest’s Great Artist program is sponsored by our PTA.  Parent volunteers teach students about great artists of the past and complete art projects with them on a monthly basis.  Curriculum and online, step-by-step directions are provided to simplify things for our volunteers.  If you can make time, once a month, to serve in this program, reach out to our coordinator at oakcrestgreatartist@gmail.com.  No special artistic talent required!
