Middle School Boundary-Parent Meeting Recap 02.20.20

Oak Hills voices are getting drowned out by bigger schools. We need to be LOUDER and use upcoming meetings to be more VISIBLE. Below are actions we discussed at tonight’s meeting with both East & West Oak Hills parents.

Immediate – Send emails and comments EVERYDAY. Have family, neighbors, and friends that care about our kids do the same. They are reading them.

Key messaging:

  1. TOP LINE: End isolation of Oak Hills students. Send Oak Hills (East) to Timberland with Terra Linda and Oak Hills (West) to Meadow Park with Bethany.
  2. Strengthen the middle school to high school feeder path for Oak Hills students. Fulfill Objective #4.
  3. Currently, only 20 Oak Hills students start Sunset each year in a school population of 2000 where they recognize only 1% of the student body.
  4. The Oak Hills community agrees to an East/West split at middle school to ensure students continue onto a high school with a decent size peer group. End isolation of Oak Hills.

This Saturday (Feb 22) – Join us for a conversation with Anne Bryan, our Oak Hills BSD School Board Member, Saturday at 12pm at the Oak Hills Community Room.  We need her to fight for what’s best for Oak Hills kids.

Next Tuesday (Feb 25) – Let’s flood the room at the next advisory committee meeting Tuesday, February 25that 6:30pm at Whitford Middle School. Bring friends, neighbors, and family members. Wear blue to indicate you are representing Oak Hills and bring signs.

PTO Snack Attack!

The snack pantry is up and running in the classrooms! The PTO is working to ensure that every child in our school has a snack each day because we all know that you can’t learn if you’re hungry. If you would like to donate to the snack pantry, please drop off your donation at the school office. We appreciate your support!
