Dear OHS Families,
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
Fifth Grade Chorus Performs at Swearing In
This evening (11/27), at 7:00 pm, our fifth grade chorus, led by Mrs. Haskitt, will be performing a piece at the Swearing In of Fairfield’s new First Selectman, Bill Gerber. Mr. Gerber’s children are OHS alumni and we are honored to be invited to perform. The Swearing In will include music from high school groups and OHS. It will take place at the Warde High School Auditorium.
Turkey Trot Thank You
Last Tuesday, we had a fantastic morning for a Trot around the building in celebration of Thanksgiving and the success of our food drive. We collected over 5000 items in November to donate to Operation Hope. We had volunteers picking up all the food for delivery with help from some of our fifth graders. The turkey Trot itself was a great time. Big thanks to Courtney Cataldo and Kate Fierman for organizing the event, including volunteers, decorations, and route markings. Mr. Marko started off the trots well and kept us on schedule. We had a beautiful balloon archway for a finish line, created by Katya Iodice. It was wonderful having so many family members out to support and cheer on the runners! A wonderful way to transition into the Thanksgiving weekend!
Holiday Consideration Reminder
I sent this out last week but am including a reminder of the request that we do our best to hold back on too much focus at school on holidays so we can continue to focus on teaching and learning. We will be asking Santa hats and light-up necklaces to stay in backpacks while class is in session. We want this to be a fun season but there is much to teach and learn! Thanks for your help with this.
Lockdown #2 Reminder
We will be having our second lockdown drill of the year sometime early in the week of 11/27. I will send out communication after it is complete to update you.
Have a great start to December later this week,
