APRIL 3, 2017 Newsletter


Dear OES Families,

Can you believe we only have 2 months of school left?  April and May are always 2 of our busiest months, so hang on and enjoy the ride of exciting activities and learning.  Also, as usual, April has arrived with her often promised rain showers.  Don’t forget, in the event severe weather is occurring during arrival or dismissal, the administration may delay the unloading or loading of cars and buses to ensure the safety of students and staff.  If possible, an automated phone message will be sent to notify parents.  Thank you for your understanding. 

OES Kindergarten Pre-Registration

Kindergarten pre-registration is for students entering kindergarten next school year.  

*UPDATE 4/5/17* Due to the inclement weather forecast, OES will be dismissing at 11:15 am. Pre-K and Kindergarten registration is postponed for a later date.

OES Fun Run

Our annual Fun Run fundraiser has started off with great success and will culminate this Friday with the Fun Run event.  This fundraiser could not be possible without the great help and support from our very own PTA and parent volunteers.  Funds raised will go to support various aspects in the school (technology, outdoor projects, etc.).

Book Fair

OES Book fair will be from April 3-13.  This is a great opportunity to buy some great books for your child and help our library at the same time.
