On behalf of the OHEF - Oak Hills Educational Foundation I would like to thank each and every one of you in supporting our APEX Fun Run this year. Through your amazing support, the fundraiser netted over $42,000, meeting and exceeding our initial goal. All funds netted will be applied towards the ongoing support of our STEM programs at the school. Oak Hills students will be able to experience programs such as: Science Lab, LEGO Robotics, Coding, Sky dome Planetarium, STEM Expo and Science assemblies, just to name a few. For a complete list of programs, please visit the Oak Hills Educational Foundation website: http://www.ohef.org/programs.html
Additionally, given the success of this year’s fundraiser, we will be able to kick-off plans for establishing our own Oak Hills ROBOTICS team and on-site MAKERSPACE. Plans for these programs are in development. We welcome your suggestions and recommendations throughout the planning process. If you are interested in getting involved or share information, please visit http://www.ohef.org/contact.html
Special thanks to Oak Hills Teachers and administrations for their support. Most importantly, we want to thank all Oak Hills Students and Families for their generosity in time, effort and donations! We could not have done it without you!
Sincerely, Janet Seres President OHEF – Oak Hills Educational Foundation
