The Olive Branch 4.5.19

What's Up At The Nest...

What a great turnout we had at STEAM Night on Wednesday. We loved seeing all of our families, including many grandparents in attendance for the 4th-grade concert, enjoying the activities together. This event could not have happened without the strong partnership we have with our PTA. Thanks to one of our parents, Sue Kowols, and our student learning coaches, Shannon Watanuki and Lynnae Jenkins, who spent many hours planning the event. We also want to thank all of our parent, teacher, and high school volunteers who helped make the night possible.

We hope Olive-U have an outstanding weekend!
