With testing this week, it has been a pretty uneventful week.  The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students did a great job on the STAAR test and the primary students did a great job remaining quiet.

I would like to continue to recognize the parents and Boy Scout troop that are helping with the front lawn area.  This has been a huge task, but it looks really great.  I appreciate everyone's support.

Throughout the week, 2nd graders attended a musical of Pinoncchio at the Zach Scott Theater.  One of our own students was in the play.

Today the 5th grade students kicked off the annual Food Drive.  They will be collecting food items for the Austin Area Food Bank.  Each classroom will have a box so all students can support the program.  At the end of the program, the 5th graders weigh all the food and then go and help at the food bank.  It is a great way for our students to give back to their community.

We value our volunteers at OHE and we have AWESOME ones! Please join us on Friday, May 2nd for a special treat to celebrate you!

Can't believe next week begins May and then school is almost over!  Seems like we just started!
