In September 2021, Oak Grove held its first Lantern Parade, to coincide with the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade. Art teacher Beth Deery challenged students to design a functioning lantern, and they used principles of light and reflection to make their lanterns shine bright!
There was also the challenge of having a parade safely during covid, and allowing parents to view the parade via live stream. Students did not disappoint with their creative designs and the first OGE Lantern Parade was a success.
