We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.  – Jimmy Carter

Mosaic is Oakridge Elementary School! As a cross-curricular exemplary project, Mosaic celebrates diversity, promotes a deeper learning of Virginia’s curriculum content standards, and fosters a sense of community throughout Oakridge.

Peace, by Wendy Anderson Halperin, introduces our year-long school-wide theme of LOVE: love yourself, love each other, love this place.
