Giving Tree- Donate Christmas Gifts to Our OHE Families in Need this Holiday Season

posted Nov 25, 2017, 11:55 AM by Geeta Suggs   [ updated Nov 25, 2017, 1:53 PM ]

What is the Giving Tree?
The Giving Tree is a project that we have done at OHE for many years to help get Christmas gifts to our families that are in need. This year our Giving Tree will all be online. You will be able to click on the link below to select the items you would like to purchase for the child. Once you have selected the child and gift(s) you would like to purchase, please be sure to fill in your information in the Google sign-up, so we can get a hold of you if needed. There is an ornament number listed next the child's age and gender and this is very important to keep track of. You will need to write this ornament number on a paper and attach it to the unwrapped gift before you bring it in, so we know who the gift is for.

We are officially kicking off our Giving Tree now, so you can shop for some of your gifts on Cyber Monday, if you choose to, and get in on some of those great deals. We have SO MANY items that have been requested this year and we hope that you can help.

Click here to see our ornaments that are available and sign-up here as well!

***When you are ready to donate, place your donation(s) in the office, next to the Giving Tree. Please tape a paper with the ornament NUMBER you signed up for online (column A) on the donated gift and do not wrap the gift(s). Donations will be accepted from now until December 8th.

***Donations of new and unopened wrapping paper, rolls of tape, and/or gift tags are also needed. Please place them next to the Giving Tree as well.

The counselors/volunteers will help sort all the gifts and the school will ensure that the families receive our packages!
We hope that you and your family enjoy this wonderful time of year and that you may be able to help our community.

If you have any questions, please contact Erika Ahumada, OHE School Counselor.

DEADLINE EXTENDED to October 11. There will be no wait list available this year. Sign up now, if you are interested.

Does your child like to walk, jog, or run around the track? Does s/he REALLY like to walk, jog or run? Join the After School Track Club!

Track Club is open to 100 OHE Eagles (currently 1/2 full in first 24 hours of registration opening). We meet every Wednesday from Oct. 4 - May 2 after school from 2:57 until 3:30, weather permitting.

There is no bus transportation available after2:57 pm so you will need to make arrangements to have your child picked up promptly at 3:30. If your child goes to C-Club or Extend-A-Care, I will make sure s/he will go there directly and you can pick them up as you usually do.

2 things to consider:

1. Membership numbers are limited to 100 students. Due to the limitation on membership, please have a conversation with your child to be sure s/he is excited to be on the track with us after school! Once membership is full, we will start a waiting list for students that are wanting to join.

2. Membership dues of $10 is a part of registration. Dues will pay for a Track Club t-shirt, ribbons and the end of the year celebration. Payment is by check only (not online) payable to Oak Hill Elementary

Please register online and then send a check in to complete your registration.
