OHA students

As the school year comes to a close, it is a wonderful time to reflect on the impactful learning experiences and memories we've shared throughout the 2024-25 school year at O.H. Anderson. Our students have shown remarkable growth in their learning and have created countless fun memories that will last a lifetime.

To celebrate these learning accomplishments and reminisce about the wonderful times we've had, please take some time to view our special end-of-year slideshow. This presentation highlights the journey we've taken together, capturing moments of learning, laughter, and friendships.

After watching the slideshow, we encourage you to engage with your children and ask them to share some of their fondest memories from the past year. Here are a few questions to get the conversation started:

  • What was your favorite project or activity this year?

  • Can you tell me about a time when you felt proud of your work?

  • Who is someone you enjoyed working with, and why?

  • What was the most fun event or field trip you went on?

  • Is there a lesson or topic you found particularly interesting or exciting?

  • Can you share a funny moment that happened in class?

  • What is something new you learned that you didn’t know before?
