Note from the Principal

OHE families,

It’s hard to believe, but we have made it to the end of our school year! School will dismiss on Tuesday at 11:45 am for the summer.

We are so proud of our student's efforts this year. On behalf of all the staff at Oak Hill, thank you for your support of our school.

It is a joy to serve the students, staff, and parents of this community. I am looking forward to spending some time with my family this summer and returning for another great school year next year!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer!

We are so grateful to our parent volunteers with the PTO who design and put together our yearbook each year. Yearbooks are being distributed to those that purchased them. PTO does have a limited number of additional yearbooks to purchase available in the office.

PTO Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to our Oak Hill Elementary PTO Scholarship winner, Maya Welde!
Maya is a truly amazing senior at Blue Valley Northwest, who is a leader and a community volunteer! Maya also makes academics a top priority!

Congratulations to the Denise Andrew's Future Educator Award winner, Hayley Numrich!
Hayley is an exceptional Senior who has excelled in basketball at Blue Valley Northwest! Her coach says that Hayley is a "beast" on the basketball court while making academics a priority as well. Hayley plans on attending Baker University in the Fall and will be playing on the women's basketball team. She credits Mrs. Andrew's with being the first person to introduce her to the game she loves, the game of basketball!

Both Maya Welde and Hayley Numrich will be reading their inspiring essays to the Oak Hill student body. Thank you ladies for showing us just how high Oak Hill Hawks can soar!
