Congratulations to 5th grader Ashton Sturgill, the first student to reach 25 miles walked in the OHES Walking Oaks Club for the 2018-2019 school year. Ashton was the top-miler last year, reaching over 250 miles walked, and his goal is to beat his record this year.

The 2018-2019 edition of the Active Acorns Fall Team had its first meeting, and the presenter was one of our most popular through the years. Scott King, local Krav Maga instructor, made his 5th visit to the Acorns, and he taught the club members about self defense and personal safety. This year, 77 students are enrolled in the Active Acorns, divided between the Fall and Winter Teams. The club is made possible by sponsors Southern Ohio Medical Center and the Jackson County Health Department. September 2018
