Thanks to a wonderful Grandmother Donor, the Ft. Worth Opera came to OHE again.  This year’s performance was a combination between the Ugly Duckling and the Big Bad Wolf.  The students were excited, especially when they saw some of their friends part of the opera.  Some of the primary teachers stated that their students had never been to an opera.  Yet, another example of the wonderful opportunities the OHE students experience. 

 Even some of the students were in the play...

 Last night was a spirit night at McDonald's.  OHE had over 100 Happy Meals purchased.  Those in attendance were able to put their name in for a bicycle.  Today, during assembly, Mr. Cumings drew the winner. 

November 22nd, is Our School, Our World culture event.  Parents helped today making passports for the event.  Make sure you mark your calendar so you can attend.

Authors Jon Agee and Loren Long were on campus today presenting to the PK, Kinder and 2nd grade students.  It was amazing to watch a story being told and illustrated at the same time.  If you are interested in purchasing autographed copies of their books, please let Ms. Underwood know.

Thank you to you and to all your wonderful students for submitting works to the PTA Reflections Program this year.  The PTA received over 100 entries related to the theme of "Believe, Dream, Inspire".  All visual graphic works will be displayed in the Oak Hill Elementary Cafeteria from Thursday, November 7 through Wednesday, November 13.  Students will be able to see them during lunches - or when classrooms take tours during their school day.  Parents can view them during lunches and again at the OHE Reflections Award viewing from 5-6 pm on Wednesday, Nov 13.  The Awards Ceremony will be from 6-6:30 pm, Wednesday, November 13, when all the students listed below will receive their award at the ceremony.
