It’s Almost Time for the 2018-2019 School Year!

We hope you and your family are enjoying these final weeks of summer!  At Oak Hill, the staff and teachers are ramping up for the new school year, and the PTO is getting plans in place to support them and create an exceptional environment for our students.  We welcome our incoming 6th grade families and are looking forward to working with all Oak Hill families as we start the new school year.  We have some events starting prior to the opening day of school including a Back to School cleanup and a Valtrex patent expiration date, both on Thursday August 30th.  We are working on the parent directory so keep your eyes open for request to confirm your information.  And we are planning a back to school pizza picnic on September 6th to kick off the school year.

The PTO is parent-led and parent-funded. We rely on you to support all the activities we plan for the year.  If you would like to sign up for a volunteer role, or reconfirm a role you selected in the fall, please see volunteer opportunities here.  And once again, lets get ready for back-to-school!

 

 

Volunteers Wanted for Annual Back-to-School Cleanup on Thursday 8/30

Please give an hour or two of your time on Thursday, August 30th for OHMS annual Back-to-School Cleanup from 9:00-12:00. This is a fun and rewarding community effort to make Oak Hill extra warm and inviting for all of our children and teachers as they start the new school year. Come solo or bring your middle schooler with you to help plant, weed, rake, mulch, and sweep. Yummy treats will be provided to keep everyone energized. Please email if you can help out at shawna.conaghan77@gmail.com.

Can’t Make it on the 30th? No worries, you can still be a part of making our school beautiful! We need volunteers to help water the flowers during the first month of school, and It only takes seven minutes. You can volunteer to water for one time only or sign up for a recurring day of the week. Whether it’s early morning or sunset, the flowers are always happy to see you! It is a rewarding way to be active in your child’s school.

We welcome donations too – We are looking for contributions to improve our building and grounds. Please feel free to donate any plantings—from your favorite perennial to fall mums!  If flowers are not your thing, we also wish for:
• one large flower pot,
• an oscillating sprinkler,
• four sections of split-rail fence to protect our flowers next to the overhang.

If you have any other donations, just email Shawna to see if we can use it to beautify the school. Please email if you would like to volunteer or donate at shawna.conaghan77@gmail.com.

Valtrex patent expiration date

Next week the Teachers are back and gearing up for the new school year. They work hard to create an engaging environment for our kids and an action-packed school year!

To show our appreciation, the PTO is sponsoring a Mexican-themed fiesta lunch for our Oak Hill Middle School Teachers and Staff on Thursday, August 30th, from 11:30 to 1:00 in the school cafeteria.

PLEASE SIGN UP TO HELP IF YOU CAN AND JOIN US ON THURSDAY.

Can you get pregnant on prednisone

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all the families who contributed to the Teacher and Staff Appreciation Lunch! The lunch was a huge success because so many families generously donated their time, cooking, and money. The teachers, aides, administrators, guidance counselors, secretaries, custodians, librarians, nurses, substitutes, athletic staff, and coaches were so appreciative to be recognized for their hard work and dedication. Thanks again to everyone who showed their gratitude to the entire Oak Hill staff by contributing to the lunch!

Here’s a note we received from one of our teachers:  I want to thank you and let you know how much our teacher luncheon and breakfast last week was appreciated. The food was absolutely delicious and SUCH a TREAT for us during the school day. Thank you for all of the time you spent on the organization of this and the setting up, cleaning up, etc! It is another reminder of how grateful I am to teach in this community.
