5th Grade's Family Night: Thursday, December 12th at 6:00. Program begins at 7:00.

Welcome to Music @ OGCES!
My name is Megan Cox, and I am thrilled to be your Oak Grove Central Elementary music teacher! This is my sixth year teaching at OGCES, however, it is my tenth year teaching for DCS schools. I have taught in the general education classroom for five years and music education for five years. I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2010, and I will receive my graduate degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College this May. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeff, and our seven year old son, Leland. Together, Jeff and I help lead worship at First Baptist Church Nesbit, which we love! Music is my passion, and I'm so thankful for the opportunity to share the joy of music with our Oak Grove students!
