Good Afternoon OES Families,

This week is our Hope Week. We kicked off this morning with a fantastic assembly with Alex Boye. He spoke of finding the good in everyday life and never giving up. He shared some videos of his songs, sang with the students and was a great inspiration for us all.

This week we will have different challenges each day for students and each day an activity:

Tuesday: Hope Squad kids play with other students at recess and write messages of hope with sidewalk chalk around the playground.

Wednesday: Extra Lemon Drop Wednesday with the principal and Hope Squad kids will visit each class.

Thursday: Mountain View’s Hope Squad will be here during lunch and lunch recess to talk to and play with the kids in our school.

Friday: During lunch, Hope Squad kids will be outside the lunchroom for all students in the school to write about how they can brighten others’ (or their own) days on paper lemon drops. We will hang these outside the lunchroom.

Valentine’s Day is Friday. Classrooms will celebrate individually, please ask your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

Don’t forget that next Monday, February 17, 2020 is President’s Day and there will be no school.

The district sent out information regarding the snow make up day stating that the make up day will be on April 6, 2020. It is an early out Monday, but also the day before Spring Break begins. We realize that many families may have already made plans for this day. If your child is planning to be absent that day, please let the office know as soon as possible.

Please see the attached flyers for the February Hope Newsletter:
