Talent at OHE

OHE is full of talented individuals! I just wanted to share a few recent distinctions for some of our students with you. 

Recently, we had several of our students compete on a team at the Destination Imagination regional tournament. This is an independent team run by a parent, but three of the students are from Oak Hill. The mission of Texas Destination Imagination is to encourage and foster the development of 21st century skills: creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration; to influence development of a positive self-image; and to prepare the students to apply problem solving skills to life decisions. I am happy to report that the team won FIRST place in the regional tournament and is headed to Lubbock THIS WEEKEND to compete in the state tournament. We wish them the best of luck and know that they will do an amazing job! Here are some pictures from their recent tournament:

We also had one of our Kindergarten students place as a finalist in the Book People bookmark contest !  Her bookmark is the Gerald and Piggie one on the bottom (elephant and pig). What a cute bookmark! Congratulations to her! 
I know we have many more talented students at Oak Hill. I see it everyday! We have creative thinkers, future scientists, authors, and artists. I am amazed by their work and proud to be a part of the best school in AISD! (In my opinion) 😀
