Through these efforts, we provide a positive parent and family culture as we build on relationships. Secondary, is our fundraising efforts to support the teachers which we do through fun activities and events. In the spring each year, all parents are asked to sign up for their volunteer role for the upcoming year. Our goal is to include as many parents as possible to support Oak Hill School!

Parents consign clothes and household items and work shifts to cover the sale. It is a great way to get to know other Oak Hill families and serve as an ambassador for our school.
