Oakwood Junior High is supporting a neighboring school. This sweet boy was in a bad car accident earlier this week on Rte 1 in Georgetown. This accident claimed the life of his father that day. Unfortunately, early Saturday morning, Wyatt went to be with his father. In support of Wyatt, his family, friends, Pine Crest Elementary, and the Georgetown community, they are asking everyone to wear red and black on Tuesday in support of this young man who was lost too soon. Everyone help spread the word! #4houses1home
