Students practicing their writing.
In Language Arts this quarter and
next, students in grades 1-6 have been learning how to use their critical
literacy skills to examine texts while being able to look at the perspective of
the author and others. Students have been looking at a variety of texts ranging
from fairy tales to stories of friendship to historical texts to practice these
skills. In this unit, our students are learning to decide whether or not they
want to agree with the ideas presented or form their own ideas. These are
important skills for our 21st century learners.

Staff Appreciation Week at Oak Hill Elementary is quickly
approaching! It is less than one month
away and is taking place May 7-11. We have a great week of festivities planned (including a catered lunch)
that is sure to let our teachers and staff feel valued and appreciated.
We have two ways for parents to make a meaningful
contribution to the festivities. You can either donate your time or make a
voluntary monetary contribution.
VOLUNTARY MONETARY CONTRIBUTIONS
We are taking a slightly different approach this
year and rather than asking parents to contribute supplies, we are asking for
monetary donations to cover the costs of the week-long festivities. Its a quick
and easy way for you to let the teachers and staff know how much you appreciate
all that they do for your children. We are accepting voluntary donations up until May 2,
2018. Donations may be made in three ways:
1. Check (made payable to "Lauren Meurlin" and
sent in to the main office in an envelope
labelled for "Lauren Meurlin, PTA Hospitality Coordinator")
(sent in to the main office in an envelope
labeled for "Lauren Meurlin, PTA Hospitality Coordinator)
3. Paypal (https://www.paypal.me/LaurenMeurlin).
If prompted, be sure to select that you are sending a payment "to a
friend" to avoid paying transaction fees.
A donation of $10 per student is suggested, but any
amount is welcome. For more information about how to make a monetary donation,
please click here.
