Book Fair week is always fun and full of excitement.  This time was no exception.  It was a definite Fiesta.  Our newly created Ballet Folklorico group danced for the school on Cinco de Mayo and again during Family Night for Book Fair.

 It was also Kinder Round Up, and we met many of the new students that will be attending OHE in the fall.  The students were so excited about being on campus.
Second graders have been studying the Butterfly Cycle.  After making caterpillars in class, they released the 'hatched' butterflies outside.

Also this week, we celebrated Teacher Appreciation.  It is just overwhelming the love and kindness shown for the OHE staff.  We had Rudy's BBQ on Wednesday and massages today.  Plus, without the staff knowing, students with the support of one of our amazing parents, created a video explaining how they felt about their teachers. Students even dressed up in costume to make the video more interactive.
Next week is the STAAR retest for our 5th graders.  We still have a few students needing to pass.  It won't be a No Visitor Week but please be mindful when you are on campus.  

Have a great weekend and have a great Mother's Day.
