Time flies when you are having fun!

What a busy few months and a busy few weeks it has been.  I can’t believe we have just over one more week of school before our Thanksgiving break. I wanted to take a minute to highlight some of the wonderful things that have happened over the last few weeks.

We observed Red Ribbon week by learning why it is important to Say No to Drugs. Students expressed this is various ways: 

The fourth grade students treated us to a wonderful performance about the state of Texas. They sang many Texas songs and while we were being entertained, we were also learning. I learned a few things about Texas that I didn't know. I hope some of the students did to. 

Last week we had our annual Our World, Our School event. This event is one of the favorite events of our staff and families for the year. We ate some delicious food, visited booths and learned about various places around the world that our families are from, and were entertained by numerous talented performers. 



On Friday night, Oak Hill supported the Austin High School vertical team at the football game. The students and I were able to run through the Austin High tunnel and then form a larger tunnel for the Austin High School football players to run through onto the field. I know that the students had a great time being on the field and being extra cheerleaders for Austin High. The two Austin High school students pictured below even had affiliations to Oak Hill. One has a brother that attends Oak Hill and the other is the son of one of our art teachers, Ms. Benner. 

Friday is our Fall Fun event.  It looks like the rain is supposed to stop and we hope to have beautiful weather for this day.  I know the students look forward to this fun filled day of activities that get us moving and grooving! It is one of my favorite events of the year. You are welcome to come join us or volunteer for a little bit. We hope to see you there!
