For the past several days in PE, students have participated in the Child Safety Program presented by the Public Works Dept. COA.  Make sure you ask your child about what safety measures they should be using. 

Also this week, third through fifth graders have been conducting student council elections.  Next week, 4th and 5th grade students will be campaigning for positions on the student council board.  The student council here at OHE complete several service projects throughout the year.  Here is this year's student council:

Last night, at the PTA General Meeting, we were excited to have AISD school board member, Amber Elenz, stop in and say hi. She talked about getting involved and joining your local PTA, and encouraged us to find out more about the Austin Council of PTAs (ACPTA). She said that PTA is a great way to have your voice heard about important topics on education.  

One of the roles of the PTA is to educate parents and to do so, the PTA will have speakers come give presentations on interesting topics. The guest speaker at last night's meeting was Bernadette Noll, author of Slow Family Living. She gave us tips on how to slow down and enjoy family time with just a few tweaks here and there in your schedule. It was very educational and inspiring!

Have a great weekend!
