" We are th otters, the Oak Knoll otters, everywhere we go, people outta know, who we are, so we tell them, we are the otters, the Oak Knoll otters!!"
The happy theme song of Oak Knoll Elementary School located in Menlo Park. This is a great school. The education here is wonderful because the school is in Menlo Park (a rich place) so there are always funds. There are many programs to get all the kids envolved. For the older kids (4th and 5th grade) they can become counselors or helpers of some kinds. They get points for doing this. If you earn enough points you get to go on a trip with the others who have those points on some kind of trip, like bowling or Raging Waters. The whole school is on a buddy program. Two classes are joined together to be buddies. For example, a 4th grade class can be with a kindergarden class. Each child has their own buddy. The classes meet up and do activities together. There are three different play grounds. One for the kindergardeners, one for 1st-2nd grade, and a third for the 3rd-5th grades.
