Dear OHE Families,

It has been so wonderful being here at OHE.  I have truly loved being back on a campus and interacting with everyone.  It has been a steep learning curve but it seems to be smoothing out.  This week, Peggye and I sat down to look over some data and I actually recognized student names and knew what classes they were in!  As I walked campus these past few days, observing all the parents helping in the classrooms was wonderful.  

Being new to the community, I wasn't quite sure how this season was celebrated.  But I have been quite impressed with how many traditions and celebrations are taught.  OHE students will understand how other cultures celebrate this time of year or if they celebrate anything at all. Which is great considering the diversity of this campus.

Thank you to all for helping me feel so comfortable and in teaching me the OHE traditions as well as supporting me with new initiatives. I  look forward to continuing our work in the spring.

 I wish each of you a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, and/or other holiday celebrations.
