It's Cold Out
Even though it's winter, students will go out for recess unless the temperature (including wind chill) is below 10 degrees. Please be certain that your student has clothing that will keep them warm during their recess period. We are seeing any children who arrive in sweatshirts without hats, mittens or winter boots. If a student is in need of warm winter gear, please let us know.
After reading many versions of Gingerbread stories, students wrote and illustrated their own Gingerbread stories. Parents were invited to school to listen to the Gingerbread stories read by each student.
Our district-based preschool program recently moved from the SACC building to a new classroom within our school. With careful room shifting, understanding staff and our wonderful custodial staff, we were able to move the preschool program into the school. This was a very smooth transition and we love having the preschoolers, Ms. Lyons and Mrs. Leonard with us. This move will also make for an easier transition for these students when they move into kindergarten.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Rotary Club, each third grade student was gifted a dictionary to use at school. At the end of the school year, they will be able to bring their dictionary home. Students were very excited to received this gift. Thank you, Rotary Club.
Thanks to all our wonderful parent, grandparent and community volunteers who are helping to make our school a great place for children to learn and grow! As a parent or a volunteer please keep the following in mind:
FERPA violation would include posting pictures of children taken at school (other than your own) on your Facebook or other social media page. FERPA also expects that rumors about children or staff do not get spread, including through social media.
When you are volunteering for a field trip, the purpose is to supervise and chaperone a group of children, not just your own. If your purpose is to go along to simply enjoy the event with your child, then you will not be a very effective chaperone. We need our field trip volunteers to help with everyone!
Use of tobacco products is prohibited on school property or during a field trip.
Thank you for setting a good example for our children!
In light of recent national events, we have closely reviewed our safety/evacuation plan and consulted with local police. As a result, you may have noticed our front doors remain locked at all times, even during dismissal. Another safety change involving dismissal time is that we are asking parents to sign students out at the office, then wait in the cafeteria for children. If your child is unaware that you are picking them up, please check in with the office staff. This enables closer management of pick-ups and student release.
Do you have a child who will be turning five before October 15? If so, please call the school to set up a time to register your child. Registration will be taking place on May 9, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On January 18, OES Reads! kicked off with an amazing assembly. During the assembly, Mrs. Remharter introduced us to our very own Humphrey, the teachers surprised students with a flash mob dance, the author of "The World According to Humphrey" spoke to the school via webcast and each child received a copy of the book. The idea behind OES Reads! is to promote reading at home, to increase parent involvement in literacy and to create a school-wide reading community. We have had daily trivia, weekly vocabulary, a calendar of activities, a wall of fame for student work and two family events.
