Way to go Oakland!

Hello there,

WOW!! Check out how these Oakland 3rd Grade (9 -10 year old ) Students REMIXED a Rihanna song!

Oakland is a city in the United States that has had some struggles and challenges in their schools for the past few years. Look at how the city is trying to inspire their community and students!! I think this is a great way to get students excited for the new school year.
