Back to School... Only 2 Weeks Away!

Dear Oakhill Families,

Can you believe it is "back to school" time? Where has the summer gone? Way back in my early June letter, I shared that my son, Brady, was starting college at SMU in Dallas...he had to report June 1st for football (so sad and proud at the same time). So, needless to say, it has been a strange and different summer for the McCanles family. Our family vacation was a partial family vacation...we enjoyed Savannah GA's beautiful trees, Hilton Head's pristine beaches, incredible Low Country cuisine, and a "walk" along the Appalachian Trail in the Smoky Mountains (I think my 3 miles is counted as a section hike)! Over the 4th of July I took a Texas trip to see Brady. We took him to Austin and San Antonio (he loved the River Walk) and ended the trip at the lake. Over the course of the 3200 mile road trip, we visited the Pioneer Woman in Oklahoma (loved the lodge tour and Mercantile), we enjoyed Chip and Joanna's Fixer Upper fun in Waco (loved Magnolia Table at 5:30 in the morning), we swam at Jacob's Well (found it on the travel channel's best water holes), we spent time at the beach in North Padre (not quite as pristine as Hilton Head), and toured Dallas thoroughly (loved the JFK assassination tour)! We had a great time...just different (a new normal).

I hope my letter finds your family enjoying all that summer brings! With the first day of August comes the transition from summer vacation to school excitement. We begin to say goodbye to the long days of summer filled with travel, fun in the sun, and flexible bedtime curfews...and, we begin to say hello to the "back to school" traditions - school clothes shopping, picking out school supplies, the renewed and brand new friendships, and the very fun and full Oakhill calendar. 

I absolutely love this time of year - the planning, the excitement, and the anticipation...only a few more days until we officially begin our 2018/2019 school year. I am proud you have chosen Oakhill. We (every department, every division, and every facet of the school) exist for your children. We constantly reflect on our mission and who we are as a school "to provide excellence in education through child-centered learning in a supportive, challenging, and rewarding environment which provides students with self-confidence, values, knowledge, and the foundation of leadership through emotional, physical, and social development."

We have a team of educators and staff who not only care deeply about Oakhill, but who will find a way to reach each student each and every day - always reaching higher. We are here to listen, to assist, to be partners in the educational journey, and to be here for your children. We will make each and every decision with the children and the mission of the school in mind - the students as a whole will always come first. Children, whether they are two or fourteen, want a school community in which they are valued and known as individuals. they want a learning environment where they can question and discover. They want a teacher who can recognize and appreciate the gifts they bring. We will provide such a place!

I cannot say enough about this team of educators and professionals...their commitment, dedication, passion, and talent. Our students are fortunate to have these people in their lives.

Here a few updates and highlights for the coming school year:

  • Amy Ganaden will now oversee 4th grade as a part of what will become the Intermediate Division (4th and 5th grades) in 19/20. An Intermediate Division will allow us to combine the best of both the Lower School and Middle School models - the Lower School model of being departmentalized, yet still self-contained, as well as the Middle School model of being more specialized by teacher and content. We are excited about this opportunity, and we will have much discussion this year with administration and faculty to create the best possible setting for the students. Mrs. Ganaden will be sending more information on this topic.
  • Jared Cole is our new 2nd-4th grade science teacher! Jared received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and Environmental Studies from the University of Missouri-Columbia followed by his Masters Degree in Teaching and Education. Jared participated in Teach for America, teaching math and science in Bronx, New York. He and his wife, Michelle, then spent a year living in Rwanda teaching science and volunteering their time before he headed back to New York City to manage the Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability in the NYC Department of Sanitation. Jared's passion for science goes far beyond teaching; he lives his life to help promote sustainability whether it be in NYC, in Africa, or at Oakhill Day School. I have to say that his science lesson was one of the top 5% of all the lessons I have observed - the questioning, the guidance, the facilitation...were incredible. We are so fortunate to have Jared at Oakhill; he has so much to teach all of us...his experiences are varied and diverse!
  • Due to the many educational changes in the Northland this spring and summer regarding school closings and program discontinuation, we have been afforded great opportunity with many qualified candidates. In order to keep our vision for classroom size/ratios the same, we have added a Prekindergarten classroom for the coming year making four PK classrooms versus three. Heidi Hule taught Prekindergarten for several years before moving up to Kindergarten; she will head back to PK for this fall. We will have two Kindergarten sections this year taught by Marcy Driskill and Amy Clevenger. Our vision for Kindergarten has been 12-15 students per class; for the past few years, we have only managed 9-12 per classroom, and it is important for us to get back to our visionary numbers. These changes will keep Prekindergarten at 16-18 per classroom (an 8:1 or 9:1 ratio per classroom), and it will keep our Kindergarten full at 12-15 per class (which has many academic and social benefits). First through Eighth grade are capped at 16 per section with two sections per grade level. Regardless of growth and/or potential growth, Oakhill will maintain this vision.
     
  • Mary Lee Sturdevant will leave the Prekindergarten classroom where she has been a teaching assistant these past several years, and she will head into the Admissions and Development world. Mary Lee will work part-time in both offices helping with tours, student testing, and development outreach. She has so many gifts and talents; I am excited to watch her grow in this new role.
  • We have a few new teaching assistants coming on board for the coming year, as well as a few known changes. Please welcome Kinsi Walker who will be assisting Leah Hyatt and welcome Courtney Strong who will assist Sarah Tenner in the AM and PK in the afternoon. Michelle Weeks will now be using her gifts and strengths in the PE department assisting Coach Ziggy. Barb Ely will be focusing her talents on Garage Band and after school guitar lessons. Rebecca Kimmerle will be helping with lunch, cooking classes, spirit shop, and Development. There may be more additions and changes in this area coming soon - I will keep you informed!
  • During our technology summit this year, a new vision was created for technology at Oakhill. Within the Oakhill Community...we inspire innovation, we foster connectivity, we seek technology health and wellness, we stimulate creativity, and we achieve integrity. Early Childhood will infuse lessons and activities with technology, but will not have technology readily available for the students; in keeping with our technology vision, we do not want to overuse technology at this young age. Kindergarten and First Grade will have access to iPad minis in a classroom and center setting, Second thru Fourth Grades will have access to iPads for 1:1 usage, Fifth Grade will be issued school owned MacBooks, and Sixth thru Eighth Graders will either have school owned MacBooks or student owned laptops. Each year, the Fifth Grade will be issued school owned MacBooks, and in three more years, the entire middle school will have identical computers. 
  • Sara Verwers is now teaching Fifth thru Eighth Grade Computer Science while Summer Parker is now teaching Kindergarten thru Fourth Grade Computer Science - both teachers will assist teachers in the classroom with technology ideas/projects, and Summer will support Early Childhood technology integration. Sara and Summer will be overseeing the Tuesday Town Meetings and will be leading our Broadcasting Initiative (check out our new Broadcasting studio in the south building). The entire south building faculty will have MacBooks this year, and we will be phasing the main building laptops out replacing them with MacBooks over the next few years. Many of our teachers have completed their Apple Badges - an Apple teacher certification; the more we know, the more we know!
  • Although Kids Club will be similar and familiar in many ways, Taylor Clevenger and Kathryn Dodson are introducing a few subtle and structural changes to the various divisions...the new variations will be exciting and fun! We will be introducing you to the entire Kids Club staff very soon!
  • The summer has been a busy one at Oakhill; lots of projects have been completed! A few of the BIGGEST projects were: painting the entire gym and main building commons, painting in the south building, the Acorn Day Celebration outdoor lighting project has been installed, installing fiber between the two buildings (the south building will be running FAST very soon; up to speed), and lots and lots of work orders and to-dos have been accomplished! I hope you notice the improvements when you arrive.
  • The traditional postcards will be mailed on the morning of Friday, August 10th. The children will learn who their teacher will be for the new school year. When it comes to more than one section per grade level, the teachers, Division Heads, and I spend a great deal of time with student placement. The process began in May with teachers creating many different classroom split scenarios. They take into account many variables such as learning styles, gender, behavior/personalities, friendships, and growth potential to name a few. We also sit with the teachers and ask them to articulate why they recommend the splits they have created. As new students enroll throughout the summer, we continue to review these lists to ensure a successful year for all. Please know that because of all the thought and evaluation that go into the splits, changes cannot be made once splits are finalized in late July. 
  • Parent Handbooks will be online very soon! You will receive an email when they are ready to view, and you will be asked to confirm your receipt and understanding of the handbooks. 

 

As always, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email, call or stop by to discuss.

So excited for a new school year,

Suzanne

Oakhill's Carnival is a big highlight for students, families and alumni each year! It is a great way to start of the first part of the school year and meet Oakhill families - a time for everyone to catch up with old friends and make new! There is a variety of carnival games, a train, cake walk, dunk tunk (who doesn't like to dunk their favorite teacher?!?) and SO much more!

More details about the carnival will be emailed out closer to the event.

WHEN: This event is organized by your Oakhill PTO and is from 4pm- 8pm on Friday, August 24.

WHERE: The event is located in the Main Campus building and the areas immediately outside. Booster Club has a variety of concession items available to eat/drink in the Commons. Cotton candy and the Cake Walk are some favorites and can be found in the Commons as well. You can park in the lot to the east of the school, the street to the west of the school, or in the Margarita's overflow parking lot down the hill.

HOW CAN YOU HELP: PTO needs volunteers to help set-up/tear-down, run events that evening (great way to meet people) and donations for the cake walk! You can sign up for cake walk to bring a donated item or make a donation on the registration form when it becomes available.

PTO: All Oakhill Families are automatically part of PTO. Want more information? You can contact your current President, Leecil Culbertson, to hear more about volunteer opportunities, meetings and how to become more involved!

All About Car Line!

Are you a new family, have a student changing to an older division, or just need a refresher on car line procedures? Here's your chance to get a quick reminder on the locations and procedures of Oakhill's four car lines. Please look over this information before the first day of school!

2018-2019 Lunch Orders

I hope everyone is ready to get back to school after this awesome fully charged summer. With that, I wanted to get everyone back up to speed on how lunches are going to work this school year. 

In the South Campus (4th-8th grade), we have an all you care to eat experience. Your student will have breakfast available every day, healthy snacks at break time and then an extensive lunch with 3-4 hot items, full salad bar, deli bar and soup every single day. The cost for the middle school lunch plan is $1,075, which will be billed in monthly payments starting in September. If you would like to pay for it in full by August 3rd, there is a $25 discount and the cost for the year will be $1,050. You can submit a check to the finance office anytime before this date. If no payment is received, the amount will be automatically billed to your Smart Tuition account.

At the Main Campus Building (Toddler-3rd grade), lunches will be ordered online through Boonli as in years past. Your student will be moved to registration classrooms until we reveal who their teacher will be for the upcoming school year. Online ordering will go live Tuesday, August 14th in the evening and remain open for the first week. Ordering will be open until 6am on Thursday the 16th to accommodate the short window of time for ordering for the first week of school. The price for lunches this coming year have not changed. Early childhood and preschool lunches are $4.50 a day, and the PK-3rd price is $5.00 a day. Lunch orders (after the first week) need to be completed by 10pm on the Sunday prior to the upcoming week for the best rate. After Sunday night, we can still make sure your student has a lunch, but there will be an add-on rate of $6.00. If you want a hassle free, easy way to ensure that your lower school student has all the food that they care to eat without the need to log into Boonli and place orders regularly, this year we are offering an ALL-IN option for the lower school. The price for the full school year is $990 and must be received in full by August 3rd. This option gives you the peace of mind that all you need to do is get your child to school and we will make sure they have a great lunch they will love every single day.

If you have any questions about the school lunch program, how to log in or sign up for Boonli please email us and we will be happy to help you out.

There's a variety of ways to make payments.  You can make payments online and/or over the phone with SMART Tuition.  If you have selected to pay your tuition with our 4-pay or 10-pay plan, your account has been set-up to have an automatic debit on the 15th of the month.  Other payment plans have the option of using the automatic debit as well.

Annual Fund Kickoff

The start of the 2018-2019 school year is almost here and we are so excited to start a new year of giving through the Annual Fund! The Annual Fund is an Annual Giving Campaign. The money raised goes to support our schools operational budget. It helps us pay for professional development for our teachers, technology, and curriculum. 

The official kick off this year will be on Monday, August 20th. The goal is to reach 100% parent participation and we are raising our monitory goal from $100,000 to $150,000.

Don't forget to ask your employer about matching gifts. Some employers will match your donation dollar for dollar. 

You can also give through Appreciated Securities. Please contact the Development office for more information about Planned Giving. Oakhill Day School accepts donations of outright gifts, such as gifts of appreciated securities, that benefit the school now and deferred gifts, such as bequests, that the school will receive at a later date. 

We are exciting to start a new year of giving!

Goodbye Summer....Hello Kids' Club!

Seems like only a couple of weeks ago, we were gearing up for our brand new Fully Charged Summer Program.  Ten weeks later, we are down to the last few days of games, swimming, outdoor play, field trips, and more! We can't believe how fast this summer has flown by...

We thank all the families and their campers who came this year to give our new summer program a try.  We loved seeing your smiles, hearing your laughter, and watching your new friendships blossom. We hope you had as much fun as we did...going down the slip-n-slide on Mondays, buying snacks in the camp shop, swimming on Tuesdays and Fridays, going to great field trip locations on Wednesday (Chicken N Pickle, Mini Golf, Escape Rooms, LegoLand, Main Event, Rowdy Ribbits, Kaleidoscope, and so much more!).  Each week was a new adventure--and each day brought more games and excitement. We hope you will join us next summer as well...for more fun, games, laughter, and memories to last a lifetime.

As we say goodbye to summer, we say Hello to Kids' Club.  Much like our Summer Camp had a new look this year, we are excited to share that our Kids' Club program will have a new look and feel as well.  Mrs. Dodson and Coach Taylor have new ideas just waiting for you as you head back to school. Whether you are part of our Toddler to Preschool group (Kids' Club Shine), our PK-4th grade group (Kids' Club Journeys) or our 5th-8th grade group (Kids' Club Ignite), you are sure to see new faces, new activities, and new program offerings.  We can't wait to share all we have to offer this year. Continue to check the Kids' Club page of the HUB as we make things available.

To start the year, we want to make sure anyone who needs care for the school year can register.  Our registration forms are available now on the HUB. To register for Kids' Club Shine (T-PS) or to register for Kids' Club Journey (PK-4th) or Ignite (5-8), follow these links:

Ambassador Referral Program

The best way for any organization to get the word out is through referrals. Word of mouth is a wonderful way to share your experience! Current Oakhill families are the best representation of what our school has to offer and what makes us special. Through word of mouth marketing we can add more great families to the school community – families who look for a partnership, who value education, and who commit to giving their child an educational environment where he or she can grow and develop into a well-rounded individual.

Oakhill offers the Ambassador Referral Program for current families! We provide a credit to your account that can be used for tuition or other charges during the school year. We do this for each new family referred to and enrolled at Oakhill!

We believe that great families know great families. Oakhill families are great families who value education. Our hope is that you share Oakhill with people in your lives who value education as much as you do, and we want to reward you for doing just so!

Last year, Oakhill had 21 students who came from referrals from current families!

How it works:
If we receive a 5 Full Day student that your family referred, you will receive a $500 credit on your account! In addition to the $500 credit for a 5 Full Day signed contract ($50 per half day), we will track all referrals this school year rewarding those families with the most contacts which come to fruition.

Each school year, Oakhill will track the number of referrals accepted and enrolled by each individual family.

During the school year, the top 5 referrers will be identified and are also awarded at an Oakhill event, including anyone who has had a successful referral.

More information on the Ambassador Program can be found online, in the Oakhill Day School Parent Handbook or by contacting the Admissions Office.

Teaching with Technology

Technology at Oakhill Day School extends beyond the devices and tools of virtual connectivity. Our technology vision is wholly inclusive of the modes and methods, on and offline, necessary to develop students who can thrive in a world of innovation.  Within the Oakhill Community, we use technology to inspire innovation, foster connectivity, seek technology health and wellness, stimulate creativity and achieve integrity not only in technology class but also in the grade level classrooms.

As we put this vision into action, we will be preparing our students for the digital future they face while building their 21st century skills of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity.   This year we are excited to give students the opportunity to build these skills as they code, design and print 3D artifacts, experiment with augmented and virtual reality, develop news broadcasts, publish their work in online portfolios, experience choice-based learning, and participate in global projects and competitions.

Not only do our students need to build their 21st century skills, but they also need to safely navigate the ever changing digital world.  Knowing that simply lecturing them on how to safely navigate the digital world is not enough, students will be given authentic, real life experience as they manage school owned social media accounts, develop and promote social media campaigns, and are given a variety of methods to tell their story in their words.

Technology is developing so quickly that there is always something new to learn. We look forward to continue encouraging learning in the digital world this school year and continuing Oakhill's mission of developing the whole child - even in the age of technology.
