Fifth-grade students should wear their field trip shirts with uniform bottoms, and fourth-grade students should wear their Tennessee t-shirts.

  • We are excited to announce that Devorah Heitner, Ph.D, founder of Raising Digital Natives and author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive and Survive in Their Digital World, will join us on Monday, March 6, at 6 p.m., for the next installment of the Common Trust Speaker Series. We understand that raising kids in the Digital Age is a topic of interest for many, and Dr. Heitner’s talk is an opportunity to hear a realistic yet optimistic perspective on helping kids navigate reputation, friendships and exclusion in the age of texting and social media. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this informative presentation. Free child care will be provided. To register, click HERE

 

  • As a follow-up to our Common Trust Speaker Series, we are hosting two lunch and learn sessions, the first on Wednesday, March 8, and the second on Tuesday, March 14, to continue the discussion of navigating parenting in the Digital Age. Dr. Dave Verhaagen of Southeast Psych will lead a two-part series, A Parent’s Guide to Technology and Social Media, to take a deeper dive into this important topic. Both sessions will be held from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. A complimentary light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Kate Sullivan, sullivank@oakhillschool.org, if you plan to attend.
