OHE celebrated college awareness this week. Outside the door of each classroom hung flyers representing colleges teachers attended.   Each class also selected a college to research and created a banner representing the college.  Here are a few.

Did you know that a group of 3rd graders has organized a book drive?  Each day new facts about literacy are read during morning announcements hoping to encourage students to bring books.  Their goal is 1000 books by December 13th.  Can you support them by bringing in old books?  

This week also began Middle of Year (MOY I) benchmark testing.  4th & 5th graders started this week and will finish next week along with 3rd graders.  

It was also Fall Bookfair Week.  Tuesday night was the family extravaganza. The Student Council sold bracelets and hot chocolate.  Stony's pizza was there for dinner, and we even had a magician.

 I know what is happening to Ms. Smith's arm?

For those that didn't receive a 5:45 wake up call this morning in regards to the delay of school, it might mean we no longer have the correct phone number for you.  You can also receive these announcements in other formats like a text.  To do this go to and under the parent cloud section sign-up for how you would like the district/OHE to notify you of events.  If you need help, call Naomi Sanchez in our office.

Have a great weekend and stay warm!
