Notes from the Headmaster
It is great to be back home in Eugene and at Oak Hill. The week in China was fruitful, but grueling: 5 cities, 4 hotels, 4 schools, and endless meetings and speaking responsibilities. Our school in Shenzhen is making progress and is growing. It has a long way to go before it reaches the potential we visualize. We have signed agreements with 2 public schools and one private school near Nanjing with the hope that the private school will build a high school with our name attached. The other 2 schools will be potential feeders to that new high school. In China, things take time; relationships need to be formed before progress can be made. Our goals include worthwhile professional exchanges, recruitment of the best students for our international outreach, and a community our students can visit for exchange purposes.

Students of the Month
High School: Brenna Cody
Brenna has been a stalwart student all year, working hard to really understand some difficult material. She recognizes that education is about connecting things that may not seem alike at first, and in that way she is a true scholar. But Brenna has also been a true friend to a handful of girls in our class all year, helping them to learn and grow. She has been consistent in her efforts to help Allison catch up and keep up – no small task, and has kindly helped others, too. She doesn’t do it for recognition; I think it comes from a core of essential kindness that ought to be recognized anyway.
