Message from Mrs. Durso

Oak Hill Wolf Pack, 

We've had another great week at Oak Hill! Thank you to everyone who came to the Glow Dance on Friday. There was such a great turn out - and even better dance moves! 

Next week is Read Across America Week. Be sure to check out the details below! Thank you to Ms. Dolenc and Ms. Ceska for organizing a great week of reading. 

I hope you are able to join me at the Sully District Budget Town Hall on Thursday featuring Sully District School Board member Seema Dixit and Supervisor Kathy Smith.

We are getting so excited for our Oak Hill 5K! We have some wonderful sponsors trickling in for the Oak Hill 5K Fun Run. Do you know a company that would like to donate or sponsor the event on May 18th? If so, please contact Cindy Meylan at cindy.meylan@gmail.com to discuss this in more detail. Thank you, sponsors!

Looking forward to another great week!
