Dominion Energy Book Donations

We are so excited about the new books Briana Terry and Dominic Minor donated to Oak Hill on behalf of the African American Resource Group (AARG) at Dominion Energy to our library and individual classroom libraries.  The AARG is working to add these valued additions to all FCPS libraries and Oak Hill is lucky to be the first!

Student Intention Survey 2021-2022

Jewish American Heritage Month


In May we celebrate Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM).  This is an annual recognition and celebration of American Jews' achievements and contributions to the United States of America. 

President George W. Bush first proclaimed the month on April 20, 2006, as a result of cooperation with Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), as well as the Jewish Museum of Florida and the South Florida Jewish Community.  Since then, annual proclamations have been made by Presidents Bush, Obama, Trump, and Biden.  For more information about Jewish American Heritage Month click here.

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month


In May, people all over the United States celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Students deserve meaningful, sustained opportunities to learn about the diverse perspectives, experiences, and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders year-round, and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is one opportunity to honor these important stories. 

To support teachers and school divisions to that end, FCPS Social Studies, in collaboration with a group of community stakeholders and educators across subject areas, developed ideas for classroom learning experiences across content areas and grade levels
