Last Saturday OHE hosted a “Make a Difference Day”.  Lots of volunteers came out.  Some even came from other cities!  What a difference they made.  This is the Outdoor Classroom area.  You probably didn't even know it was back there because the brush was so thick around it. 

Before the volunteers trimmed the brush...

 This week was   Red Ribbon Week and each day the students recognized the fight against drugs with a different theme each day.  It is always fun to see the students take the themes so seriously. 

Even our teachers took the theme of "favorite book character" to a whole new level.  Can you guess who they are?

 Thursday morning the Soaring Eagles Choir sang pumpkins songs during our early assembly.
Today was our annual Fun Field Day.  It was a perfect day and the students had so much fun.  The format was a little different this year for the older grades, but I heard nothing but praises from the students, staff and the many volunteers that came to help.  Thank you Mrs. Palmer and Mr. Shaw for an active, fun day.

Don't forget that the 5th grade is still collecting for UNICEF.  So if you haven't brought in your Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF containers, you still can.
