Dear OHS Families,
I hope you are having a good start to 2024! It was great to see many of you during our first week back from the break.
Early Dismissal- Tuesday, 1/9
This Tuesday, 1/9, is an early release day. We will dismiss students at 1:40. This is a professional development afternoon for staff. Your child(ren) will dismiss via their typical dismissal plan unless otherwise noted in School Dismissal Manager by you.
Winter District Screening Assessments
This week begins our window for winter district assessments. These include NWEA math for K-5 students, Acadience LA assessments for K-3, and NWEA LA assessments for 4-5. For grades 3-5, it is important that students’ chromebooks come to school charged, since their assessments will be completed through the Chromebook.
Martin Luther King, Jr Day- No School, Monday, 1/15
Next Monday, 1/15, is a holiday in honor of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King's legacy serves as a powerful reminder of his contributions to equality, justice, and unity. This is a good time to discuss the importance of kindness, respect, and understanding, and how these values can contribute to creating a more compassionate and inclusive community.
Composting in the Lunchroom- Starts 1/16
On Tuesday, 1/16, we will be having a CARES assembly in the morning to teach our new lunchroom processes before kicking off our new procedures at lunches that day. Big thanks to our Green Team and the parent volunteers, Emily Bergantino and Beth Nori, for working to get this organized.
Have a great week,
