Another Silent Auction Winner, Movies with the Teacher.
Each year the PTA gives three scholarships.  Below are this year's winners: Maria Luisa, Noah, and Tess.

The PTA also recognized Mrs. Brown as a lifetime member.

Ms. Ashorn was recognized for her commitement to OHE students in the Take Flight program.
Of course, Ms. Frances was honored for her commitement of 32 years to OHE!
Mrs. Sasser an existing 5th grade parent was recognized for her support of the Reflections program.

Mrs. Jody, another existing parent, was recognized for her volunteerism.  She volunteers in so many ways here at OHE that I can't name them all!
Last Saturday was the annual Primetime Showcase.  (Primetime is the name of the grant we received that allowed us to have so many afterschool enrichment programs.)  OHE took the LegoRobotics and it was a huge hit - even with school board president, Mark Williams.

Our 4th and 5th graders performed at the symphony this week using their recorders.
 4th graders also went to the LCRA Red Bud Center and learned everything about water.

Congratulations to Addison McKenna for being selected as one of 48 TAGT Summer Scholarship winners for the 2011-12 school year!

We were one of the 22 Austin ISD elementary students in grades 4-5 who qualified to participate in the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) during the 2011-12 school year.  Congratulations to those students.
