Weekly Ticker - March 27, 2016

Week of March 27, 2016


  • Happy Easter! We hope you and your family are enjoying a wonderful celebration and your hearts are full with the joy and the hope that Easter brings. We look forward to welcoming students back from Spring Break on Tuesday, March 29.


  • Dads, don’t forget that the Father/Son Breakfast is this Friday, April 1, at 7 a.m., in the Enrichment Center. All boys, PreK through sixth grade, are invited to attend with their dad. Join us for donuts and coffee to get the day started off right!


  • The Common Trust Speaker Series event, featuring Dr. Daniel Goleman, world-renowned psychologist and author of The New York Times bestseller, Emotional Intelligence, is next Monday, April 4, from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.  Goleman has transformed the way the world educates children and relates to family and friends. During his presentation, Goleman will speak about the elements of emotional intelligence and why it is every bit as important to a child’s learning and development as IQ. This is one event that you will not want to miss!


  • We are pleased to offer free childcare for the Common Trust Speaker Series with Dr. Daniel Goleman on Monday, April 4. We want to provide every opportunity for you to attend. Explorations will be open for the event, from 5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. A reservation is required. Please click HERE for additional details and to sign-up. 


  • The first Lunch & Learn seminar with Nan Russell, along with OHS guidance counselor Sarah Mathiesen and third-grade teacher Elizabeth Derck, is THIS Wednesday, March 30, from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., in preparation for the Common Trust Speaker Series event on April 4. Nan will take a deeper dive into Goleman’s book, Emotional Intelligence, specifically discussing how emotional intelligence could possibly be more important than IQ. The second session will be held on Thursday, April 7, also from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., as a follow-up to Goleman’s presentation. A complimentary light lunch will be served at both sessions. Please RSVP to Kate Sullivan, sullivank@oakhillschool.org, if you plan to attend.

We are delighted to continue offering Taekwon-Do, Dance/Cardio, Chess Club, Super Skills and private guitar, piano and vocal instruction.
