NED UPDATE:

On Tuesday, December 12th, the NED Show was presented to OLS.  NED stands for “Never Give Up”, “Encourage Others” and “Do Your Best”. The students received this assembly for free, as another school “payed it forward”, to us through yo-yo sales.  Here at OLS we purchased enough yo-yo’s to “pay it forward” twice! We are sponsoring two schools to receive this excellent character education assembly in the New Year!  Way to go OLS!

Clean up for Christmas break will take place this week.   Please have your child bring a large garbage bag to school to clean out their desks by Thursday, December 21.
