Welcome to Music @ OGCES!
My name is Megan Cox, and I am the music teacher here at Oak Grove Central Elementary School. This is my ninth year teaching at OGCES, however, it is my thirteenth year teaching for DCS schools. I have taught in the general education classroom for five years, and I'm in my eighth year of teaching music education. I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Minor in Music Education in 2010, and I received my graduate degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College in 2020. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jeff, and our ten-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 Central Elementary Students!

Peter Pan Auditions will begin the week of September 26th and will be held after-school until 4:30. Detailed information will be sent home on Thursday, September 15th. Each hallway will have two audition days. The students will be divided into two groups. One group will work on choreography, while the other sings and acts. The groups will switch the following audition day.
All students should be prepared to sing “I Won’t Grow Up” for their audition. (The song link will be sent home with the audition packet.) Students will also be asked to read for various characters from our script.

RED HALL: 9/29 & 9/30
GREEN HALL: 10/3 & 10/5
PURPLE HALL: 10/6 & 10/7
Students who receive a call-back will be considered for a lead role in the musical. Call-back auditions will be held on 10/12 and 10/13. Not receiving a call-back invitation does NOT mean you did not make the show. Some roles will be determined at the first round of auditions and will not require a call-back.
