Oster's School-wide Sock Drive is under way. The Student Council is doing this community service project in hopes of collecting over 600 pairs of new socks in all sizes to help families in need. All donations will be delivered to Sacred Heart on March 2nd. Please consider donating.
Thank you for partnering with the Oster School to build better lives in our community! Go Cougars!
Community School Facilities Survey
Following the valuable feedback received from USD employees in the Fall concerning facilities project priorities, we are now seeking input from the broader community. We invite you to take a few minutes to complete this survey. Your perspectives will play a significant role in assisting USD in prioritizing areas that require improvement and guiding us in the creation of new spaces or enhancements that will best serve the needs of our students and community. Thank you for your continued support.

4th and 5th grade family volunteers needed for Frozen Friday
A favorite Oster Tradition, Frozen Friday, happens each week! Stop by after school on Fridays outside the cafeteria to purchase a frozen treat and hang with friends! All treats are $1 or $2. Small bills are appreciated or we can take ApplePay! OR, purchase a Frozen Friday Card here.
Did you know that starting with this new year, Frozen Friday is a Science Camp fundraiser (goal is to raise $6,000 each year, a BIG help to our 5th grade families). We are looking to you, 4th and 5th grade parents and guardians to volunteer - sign up here! Volunteering to help with Frozen Friday is a great opportunity to get involved with HSC and only takes an hour or so on Friday afternoon! And, if your 5th grader wants to help sell, they are welcome to fill a volunteer slot. Again, please sign up TODAY.We are also looking for a new lead for this year and next. Again, all money raised goes to reduce the cost of Science Camp to our 5th grade families. If you are interested, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
