Oak Mountain Elementary School celebrated the opening of its newly renovated library and courtyard on February 27. Through the generosity of Indian Springs Village, the school was able to completely renovate the library. Students are enjoying the beautiful new furniture and the library is one of their favorite places in the school to visit. Additionally, the school was able to turf one of the courtyards at the school due to the generosity of two students' parents. Stacy Stuart and Julio Tabin worked collaboratively to bring the dream of a beautiful courtyard space to reality. Oak Mountain Elementary School is incredibly grateful for these community partners, and our students will benefit from their contributions for many years.

Providing innovative learning environments that promote technology and engage students in critical thinking, problem-solving, and design thinking is one of the commitments of Shelby County Schools' new strategic plan. All of that was on display at the 3rd Annual Byte of Code competition held on February 13 at the Shelby County Instructional Services Center.
