Last Friday we hosted our 3rd annual OWOS event.  Check out to see the write up about it!

This weekend, the OHE Gardening club will be featured on KLRU's Central Texas Gardener. The episode entitled "Bringing Nature Home" highlights biodiversity and how OHE students are making hands on connections with nature. The program will air on KLRU : Saturday, November 22nd at noon & 4pm; Sunday, November 23rd at 9am; and Monday, November 24th at 5:30am. The entire program is online at and   Here's just Oak Hill's segment on Central Texas Gardener's Youtube channel: AND in the blog:  Thank you Mr. Cumings for encouraging our students and helping them to understand the importance for "Bringing Nature Home"!

Another huge thank you goes to Mrs. Mauldin and Mrs. Suggs along with the 40th  Anniversary Team!  It was an awesome celebration of the 4 decades OHE is been at this location.  Each student had a role to play as well as previous principals and staff.  Did you know that we have current staff members that actually attended OHE as students?!  Some of the time capsule submissions  by the grade-levels included Wonder by R. J. Palacio,  an iPhone, Legos, a screen-shot of  the Minecraft video game, and a poster from the movie "Frozen".  Time Capsule items were submitted to be opened at the next OHE Anniversary Celebration so that future OHE students can see what was popular with students  in 2014.  The previous time capsule is on display in the front hallway.  Here is part of the video.  The rest will be added shortly.

 OHE Alumni...
Third graders end their multicultural unit by making 'Stone Soup'.  They compared different versions from around the world and will create a map for each.

Please remember that OHE will be donating the Lost and Found items to charity on Tuesday.  If you are missing something, please come and look before we leave for vacation.

Next week is just a 2 day week and Pajama Day is Tuesday.  Don't forget!!
