Oak Hill Elementary Fifth Grader Zoey French has been very motivated. She has already reached 100 miles walked in the 2019-2020 OHES Walking Oaks Club. For reaching 50 miles, she earned a water bottle, and for 75 miles, she earned a gift card. For the 100 mile achievement, she has earned a fanny pack and bracelet. Her goal is to reach or exceed 500 miles walked by the end of the school year. The Walking Oaks is sponsored by Holzer Health Systems and the Jackson County Health Department. October 2019
The Fall 2019 Active Acorns welcomed Dawn Richards from SOMC’s Community Health Department. Dawn has been coming to the Active Acorn Meetings for 5 years now, and the students always enjoy her informative and entertaining activities. At this meeting, the Acorns learned the importance of stretching and exercising, especially after extended time using electronics.

This is the 8th year for the Active Acorns Club at OHES. The 37 members of the Fall 2019 Team edition got off to an exciting start with Scott King teaching them Krav Maga self-defense. This is the fourth year Scott has visited the Active Acorns, and the students love this presentation so much. Scott does an excellent job, and the information he provides is so vital to children in today’s world.
