Principal’s Message – April 23rd

By Principal's Message

Good Afternoon OES Families,

We are well underway with our Teacher Appreciation Week.  Our PTA is so supportive of our teachers and we really appreciate it.  Please see the attached flyer:

Teacher Appreciation 2019 – Students.odt

This year has been a crazy year with cell phones.  We have had several stolen out of backpacks, misplaced and used inappropriately.

Today, we announced that students could check in their phones to the office or their teacher during the school day.  However, if a student is using their phone during school hours it will be taken and kept in the office until a parent or guardian picks it up.  This is for the protection of our student’s privacy and exposure to possible inappropriate content.

If a child needs to make a phone call at school, we have phones available for their use during school hours.  Thank you for your support in this matter.

Also, don’t forget to contact me if your are interested in serving on our School Community Council.  For more information, please see the state web site:​​​​​​​

The following is community information that you may be interested in:

Principal’s Message – April 9th

By Principal's Message

Good Afternoon OES Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring Break.  This month is pretty quiet. Our Celebration of Arts Assembly will be Monday, April 15, 2019. We will have performances from our school choir, orchestra and our ballroom team. We will also have a display of artwork from the students in our school.

Thanks to Mrs. Hancock, Mr. Winters and Mrs. Heaton, we are able to have a great representation of the arts in our after school programs.  If your child will be in 4th – 6th grade next year and is interested in ballroom, please see the following attachment.

Also, if your child is interested in any of these programs for next year and money is a concern, please let me know.  Our goal is to give students as many opportunities as possible.

I would also like to give a big thanks to Stephanie Scott and Sean Seastrand for organizing and getting our art program up and running.  Also, thank you to all of the parent volunteers who serve as art docents and help make this program a success.

We will celebrate our teachers during “Teacher Appreciation Week” the week of April 22nd – April 26th.

Please check the lost and found for anything your family may be missing.  We have a ton of jackets and this week is supposed to get cold.

Registration for 5th grade students for Clear Creek for this summer begins tomorrow.  If you are interested, please see the following attachment.

Thank you for all you do for your children.  Have a fabulous week!
