• The Fine Arts Program of Oyster Creek Elementary involves all students and all grade levels.

    This year I am happy to introduce you to our second music teacher, Mrs. Shelby Murphy Mann!  She is a valued new member of our OCE Blue Jay Nest!

    We have multiple programs per year and a performing choir (4th and 5th) and honor choir (select 5th grade students).

    • We learn the structure of music
    • We learn how to write and compose our own pieces of music
