It has been a busy week at OHE.  Many students received their Silent Auction Awards by eating on stage like the 3rd grader winner, Kael, above with friends or in the Young at Heart Library with me as in the picture below with kindergartner winner, Devon.
5th grade Silent Auction winner, Maggie with her friends.  All being watched over by our new mascot.
Ryan, our 2nd grade winner.
Will, the 1st grade winner and friends.
Today was also Student Council Hippie Day.  These students are from Mrs. Bentley's 2nd grade class.
Mrs. Calabrese with her first grade class.
It is hard to tell with such great looking costumes, but I think these are some of the girls in Mr. Kennedy's 3rd grade class.
Look at Mrs. McDonald.  She went all out.
Silent Auction winner, Morgan, received her special bedtime story from Mrs. Polan this week.  What a fabulous idea!  It looks like her brother and sister enjoyed it as well. Morgan also won "Lunch with a Cop".  She has had lots of special treats at OHE lately.
Mrs. Faulkner rewarded her winners Ella, Sadie, Lauren, and Nathan with a Movie Party in her room!
Even with all this fun, there was some learning happening.  "Dr. Devon" was Mrs. Conaway's Scientist of the week and demonstrated how a building would withstand an earthquake.  We learned that buildings made out of sugar and peanut butter don't last well in earthquakes!  Mrs. Conaway's class also observed a Bald Eagle that has eggs that are supposed to hatch any time today.  Go to
to watch as well.
