Our library renovation has meant we have the space to create amazing learning opportunities for our students.  We are asking parents for the following used items they may no longer need:

  • K’nex (large or small kits or random pieces)
  • Lego (standard size – any pieces)
  • Older iPhone or android phones (with charger if possible -we can help unlock or erase data)
  •  C- clamps (various sizes)
  • Chopsticks unused or clean
  •  LED Christmas lights
  • Unused craft or scrap booking supplies
  • Various hand tools

Thanks for your support this last term. Please drop off any items to the office or library. If you have any questions,  Click here to email me 

You may also leave a question in the comments section below.

Sincerely Mr. P. Stocker

What is ADST?


 ADST is Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies.  Students are to use digital and non-digital technologies to make, build, explore,  discover, and share their findings.  At OLS we have a workshop area, with ipads and chromebooks, and different building materials.  The activities completed or planned range from building circuits, lego challenges, using pulley systems, recording audio and video in podcasts and green-screen movies, exploring simple machines, dissecting owl pellets, using apps to create, build and share student learning.


“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.” — Dieter F. Uchtdorf
