What a difference a few hours can make in Texas related to the weather. Not sure students were expecting the temperature to drop so drastically on Tuesday! This is a great time to remind everyone to make sure student names are in their outwear like coats, gloves, and hats. Our lost and found is already huge! Please check it to see if your missing items are there. Cooler weather also increases the risk of lice. Please check a previous Eagle Eye for preventative strategies and what can be done if your child gets lice.

Hopefully, you were able to observe all the PTA Reflections projects in the cafeteria early in the week. Over a 100 students participated and many are moving to the city level. Stay posted to see who moves forward to state. 3 OHE students moved forward last year. Congratulations to all of those that participated.

On October 29th, nine fifth graders were selected to participate in the AISD all city choir. They sang with 300 other fifth graders from all over AISD at the Riverbend Centre.. They sang four songs from memory, one in Spanish, one in Latin, one was a folk song, and a jazz number. Kyle, Max, Ben, Akshaya, Leena, Katherine, Natasha, Zahara, and Korinne represented Oak Hill.

Next Friday, November 22nd, is our 2nd Annual Cultural Heritage Event. There will be many countries and cultures represented with booths to explore, food to sample, and performances to watch. At this morning's assembly, two of our OHE students, Annika and Akshaya danced to the Bollywood hit "Nimbooda" as a preview of some of the entertainment that will occur at next week's event.

For those that don't have plans Saturday morning, OHE is hosting our first Lego Robotics mock tournament. The OHE teams have been practicing for months and I am confident they will do well.  Good Luck teams!
