Principal’s Message – May 7th

By Principal's Message

Dear OES Families,

Have you noticed our outside Buddy Benches?  They have been refurbished and are looking beautiful!  We have Preston Trout and friends to thank for doing this for our school.  Preston is Mrs. Trout’s son and we are very grateful for his service.

Today is the last day of Home Reading.  Good work to all of the students who participated, and a big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped exchange books.

Yesterday, our Hope Squad had a great opportunity to have NBC Nightly News come and film one of the Hope Squad lessons.  They also interviewed a couple of students and asked about the importance of Hope Squad.  Dr. Greg Hudnel was also here to talk to the Hope Squad about the importance of looking out for one another and all of the students in our school. We don’t know when the story will air, but I will send more information when it comes.  We would like to extend another big thanks to Laura Giles and our Hope Squad advisors, Nanette Jensen, Marcie Calder, Chelsea McCleave, Trish Anderson and Teresa Whitehead for their example and teaching our Hope Squad concepts they can pass on to other students and people in our community.

Our last PTA meeting of the year is today at 1:00pm.

MORE EXCITING NEWS!!! We are getting ready to start planting our garden.  We will have a Garden Club this summer, more information will be coming in the near future.
