Weekly Ticker - March 6, 2016

Week of March 6, 2016


  • Mark your calendars and plan to attend the Common Trust Speaker Series event on Monday, April 4, from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., featuring Dr. Daniel Goleman, world-renowned psychologist and author of The New York Times bestseller, Emotional Intelligence. 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 want to provide every opportunity for you to attend the Common Trust Speaker Series with Dr. Daniel Goleman and are pleased to offer free child care during the event! 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. 


  • Join us for a Lunch & Learn seminar with Nan Russell, along with OHS guidance counselor Sarah Mathiesen and third-grade teacher Elizabeth Derck, on 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.
