Dear OHS Families,
We have arrived at the final week before our winter break. Please note, Friday, December 22nd, is an 1:40 Early Dismissal day to start the break.
This past week, Mad Science was back for grades 3, 4, and 5 program. This time, Fiona Fusion presented “Freaky Lab” to our students. I again heard positive feedback about the event. Big thanks to Kate Fierman for organizing this program and to the OHS PTA for supporting this type of programming for our students.
Winter Sing Along
This coming Friday morning, we will have our annual Winter Sing Along with students. We will sing a variety of songs from different holiday traditions, including Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa, as well as ones that simply celebrate winter. Big thanks to Laura Haskitt for preparing the beautiful music and making a special moment for our students.
Gift Card Update
Thank you to all who contributed to our gift card collection. We are working on distributing the gift cards to families in our community. If your family is facing financial challenges this season, please reach out to Stefanie Cappelieri, or Lindsay Feducia-Martin, Patty Day, or me to confidentially let us know by email or calling us at school: 203-255-8340.
On Tuesday, the PTA is organizing a special goodie-filled day for the staff. I know we will all appreciate the goodies and all the planning and time it takes to put it all together, especially during these busy December days. Thank you to all who organized and are contributing to this.
Wishes for All of You
Hannukah ended last week and I hope everyone celebrating enjoyed the eight nights. Happy Hannukah to you!
I want to wish those celebrating Christmas next week a Merry Christmas!
I hope everyone celebrating Kwanzaa over the break has a very Happy Kwanzaa!
And to those families not celebrating a particular holiday, I hope you enjoy the time with family over the break and that you are able to relax.
I look forward to seeing you all in 2024!
