Welcome Back!  2015 has gotten off to a great start.  In preparation for our Fun Run, which has been rescheduled for January 31st, each student and staff at OHE received a pedometer.  Students have been tracking their steps all week.  I actually saw a kindergarten student receive 16,000 steps!  Now, if only I could remember to put mine on!  Prizes will be awarded for the most steps, so keep walking.

For the past several years, OHE has had a reward system for good behavior in the cafeteria during lunch.  It had been popcorn.  However, with so many classes earning their Eagle strips in the cafeteria, popping that much popcorn became a problem.  Today, students earned different rewards.  PK and Kindergartners received treats from the treasure box,  1st and 2nd graders earned extra recess time, and the intermediate students were allowed to sit anywhere they wanted in the cafeteria during their lunch.  The students really seemed to enjoy their prizes and hopefully we continue to see outstanding behavior in the cafeteria.

Today was an OHE Student Council Spirit Day: Dress of Success.  There were lots of great costumes.

Many of the after school enrichment programs begin next week like Ballet Folkloric and Hip Hop Dance. 

Remember that when the weather gets bad to pay attention to the news for school closures, late starts or early releases.  School Messenger also sends a call as well as our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  If for some reason, you don't receive a call, please contact the school because that means we don't have the correct phone number for you.

Stay warm and enjoy the cold weather this weekend.
