Wishing Everyone a Joyous Holiday!

Happy Holidays from ODS Development!

I can't remember when I've enjoyed a holiday season more than 2021! I have enjoyed being together to celebrate the joy and wonder of this special season with you and your children. Oakhill students share the delight of their holiday experience with everyone around them. It is truly a pleasure and privilege to be a part of it!

I want to convey my sincere appreciation for your support and generosity. Each of you is what makes Oakhill special! I hope you have a joyous holiday, and best wishes for a spectacular New Year!
