Last week’s Family Fun Run was very successful even with the rainy day. We ran about 269 miles that day!
As each lap was completed, dots were placed on our hands to track how many laps were run.
Yes, I even came out to particpate along with my husband and niece.
Obviously, most of the boys were faster than me.
Student Council also did a fantastic job cleaning up Patton Ranch Road.  You wouldn’t believe some of the tight places students crawled just to get a piece of trash. 
The dumpster was overflowing with trash!
I am pleased to announce that OHE has a new Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Brown, our music teacher, will do an outstanding job representing OHE.  She has over 20 years of teaching experience and has worked at every level.  Since being at OHE, she has had multiple opportunities to work with the students besides just in music class.  One way is by helping the different grade levels with their yearly musicals. Also through her guidance, our students have been selected to play their recorders with the Austin Symphony Orchestra; perform with the AISD All-City Choir Festival and with the Superintendent at the State of the District Address; and participate in the AISD Music Memory Contest.  However, what she considers her greatest professional highlight is working with the Soaring Eagle Singers.  Below is last year's Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Baxter, congratulating Ms. Brown.  CONGRATULATIONS MS. BROWN!!!
