    A Message From Our Principal

     

    Dear Oak Hills Families-

     

    Spring break is right around the corner and there is much going on at Oak Hills.  This week will be filled with Earth Week activities focusing on how the food we eat has in important impact on our planet.  There will be many fun ways to celebrate Earth Week, including Walk to School Wednesday.  Our last day before our long-awaited Spring Break, this Thursday, is an early release day.  We will wrap up with our Dance-A-Thon celebration!  Please remember that we will be following the usual Friday early dismissal schedule.  School will be closed on Friday.

     

    Oak Hills Farmers Market - Monday 3:00 p.m. at the Flagpole!

     

    On Monday, April 14, in celebration of Earth Week, parents and community members will have the rare opportunity to purchase the freshest organic produce from our Oak Hills garden.  Our students will harvest their celery, lettuce, Brussels sprouts, radishes, kale, and several other specimens during lunch so that they are ready for purchase at the end of the school day.  That will be the freshest farmer's market you will find anywhere!  Quantities are limited.  All the money raised will help support Sustainable Harvest International, which works with families in rural farming communities in Central and South America.

     

    Smarter Balanced Testing

     

    As you know, Oak Hills will participate in the administration of the Smarter Balanced Accountability Consortium (SBAC) testing next month.  This new assessment is taking the place of the California Standards Test (CST) that many of you are familiar with.......

    Dance - A - Thon!!    April 17th

     

    Dance-a-thon is down to it's last week to ask for donations.  In Dance-a-thon speak, it's "hip-hop" time! That is, it's time to "hop" to it and get those last minute donors to round out your donation sheet.  

    If your donors choose to pay online please make sure they follow these important instructions: 

    When you click on the link, please make sure you click all the way through to the PayPal account to make your donation.  You have not donated until you receive a PayPal confirmation.

     

    All donations need to be turned in by the morning of the Dance-a-thon, this Thursday, April 17th. Sadly, just like Dancing with the Stars, even if your name is Yakov Smirnoff, the rules are the rules and there can be no exceptions.   

     

    For a complete list of prizes, go to: Dance A Thon Prizes

     

    An easy way to get sponsors from friends and family that are not local is to have them register on line through this link:

    Health Office News: A Message From Mrs. Meredith

     

    Spring is here!

    There have been many visits to the health office with stomachaches and headaches.

    Many times these complaints are due to dehydration. 

    Please make sure your child drinks a lot of water and applies sun screen every morning. 

    Also, don't forget to reapply the sun screen in the afternoon before outdoor activities.

     

    Have a healthy and happy day,

     

    Your Oak Hills Health Tech.

Be sure to ask them what they've learned! For more resources on the subject, check out the EEAC web resources page at  http://www.oakparkusd.org/earthweek
