2nd Annual OGE Lantern Parade - May 19, 2023 Thank you to Mrs. Deery for this amazing STEAM event!
Students will be researched native insects of Georgia and created bug lanterns for the 2023 parade
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.
