Applebee's Pancake breakfast

What a delicious Saturday morning it was at the Applebee's pancake breakfast. We had a great turnout- around 322 showed up for breakfast! The pancakes were delicious and the great conversation and time with friends and family was even better!




If you weren't able to join us, we missed you and hope that you can join us next year!

Also- Thank you all for your support of OHE with voting for Ms. Hernandez, who is a top 10 finalist for the $10,000 Rather Prize! We will not know if she won until early March. This prize benefits ALL of the students at OHE. You still have time to vote today and tomorrow!

We are 100 days SMARTER!

Last week we celebrated the 100th day of school! The teachers had multiple activities for students to count to 100, count by 10's, and learn how many 100 of something is. At this age, it's a big number! They had a great time and had several yummy treats centered around 100. We also had our second grade classes dress as if they are 100 years old. It is hilarious and they are SO cute! Next year- I think I'll join in! :-) Here are several pictures from that day.  Look at how much fun they are having!



It was a busy week for our PK and Kinder students. Not only did they do numerous 100th day activities, they had a visit from Austin firefighters who brought the ladder truck. They put the ladder all the way up and wow, was it high! I love this picture of all the students looking up at it.
They got to go inside the fire truck,  they walked around and learned about many of the knobs and hoses on the fire truck and they heard a short presentation from the firefighters. I know this is always a highlight of their year! 


We also celebrated being heart healthy by wearing red on Friday. We had many students and staff who participated. I love that Oak Hill does so much to teach our students about ways to be healthy.


We hope that you will be able to join us on Saturday this weekend  or the Pancake breakfast at Applebee's from 8-10am. Tickets are $10 for all you can eat pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes, fruit, coffee, and orange juice. Sounds delicious!! Tickets can be purchased online in the store or you can send in payment to the school by TOMORROW, Wed. Feb 8th.  This event helps fund many projects at OHE.

Hope you enjoy this beautiful weather! Maybe it will stick around for a bit!

Have a great Oak Hill day!
