Welcome Back!

Welcome back Oak Hill Families! We hope that everyone had an incredible summer and a great first week of the new school year. We are thrilled to be back at Oak Hill with our fabulous students. We had a busy and exciting first week of school. I love seeing all the returning students ready for a new year and meeting all of the new students eager for an adventure at their new school.

At our weekly Friday assembly this week, we recognized the grade level winners of our Summer Reading Challenge. Our school read a total of 1,791 books and 174,944 pages. We are so proud of all of the students that took part in the challenge and read over the summer! If you happen to be in the cafeteria, you can see the awesome display of students that participated.

The first week of school is always thrilling and fun, but can be tiring as well as we get back into routine of waking up early. I hope you got some extra rest this weekend.  We will see you all tomorrow, recharged and ready for another week of learning. We look forward to working with you to make sure it is an awesome school year for your family!

Back to School and Recess

Hope you are all enjoying your last weeks of summer! We are busily prepping the building for the students' return in 2 weeks (First Day is August 22nd!). I just wanted to update you on a few things.

Eagle Encounter/Meet the teacher will be on August 19th from 3:30-5. At 3:30 you can join the PTA, buy school gear and visit with other organizations in the air conditioning in the cafeteria. At 4:00, the doors will open for you to go meet the teachers. You can find out who your child's teacher is on Thursday, Aug 18 at 5:00. Class lists will be posted on the walls of the front porch of the main building for all students. Please note that the school will be closed at that time, so there will not be access to the building for restrooms or water. Please be sure you are subscribed to the Eagle Eye for the most up to date information. Go to our website at and click on the Subscribe button to stay informed!

Did you see the news about extra recess for students in Austin ISD. Here is a link to the news article in the Statesman Recess article  While this change still has to be approved by the board and will not begin until sometime in the fall, this is an exciting change. We will keep you posted about the specifics once we have them and once the recess goes into effect, you will receive a new daily schedule for your child.

Don't forget to log your books for the summer reading challenge. See you soon!
