Principal's Corner

  • Dr. Hamilton
    Greetings Oak Hill Families,

    Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Leader of Oak Hill Elementary. The Oak Hill Team is committed to providing our students with the best academic experience.  With that said, we will continue with the motto #wewin, meaning we will focus our efforts together as a school team to provide a learning environment in which our students will “WIN” with academic success and positive character. As a school community, we had several big “WINs” last school year:

    • Oak Hill Elementary exited priority status and is not identified as a comprehensive or targeted school
    • Ms. Shaunta Smith- was named 2019 SLPS Teacher of the Year-Early Childhood
    • Teachers in grades PreK-5 trained in Balanced Literacy
    • “Plant a Library” event with North Kirkwood Middle School
    • Alternative seating in the classrooms
    • The Oak Hill Team was trained in Trauma Informed Programs in Schools
    • The first year for the PTC (Parent Teacher Community)
    • Falcon Closet/Cupboard & Laundry Room
    • …many other wins

    The Oak Hill Team is eager to begin what promises to be an EPIC year.  We look forward to partnering with you this school year to have more “wins”.  Please feel free to contact me at (314) 481-0420 or at tina.hamilton@slps.orgRemember, together as a team, #wewin!

    Yours in education,

    Tina Hamilton
