We are so excited for our Fall Activity Event where families are welcome to join us! Fall Activity Day is a fun filled day with educational activities that include reading, math and lots of motor skills! We would love your involvement and support!

The Fall Activity Day takes place in our classroom on Friday, October 30th from 1:00 - 2:30 PM. We are needing volunteers to help at the event and also donations to make our activities! Please click here to sign up to volunteer and/or sign up to send donations.

Limeades for Learning! Help us get free items for our classroom!

Each year Sonic sponsors a program called Limeades for Learning. Teachers from all over the country submit projects and work to earn votes for them. Each week Sonic selects projects and funds them through Donor's Choose.


Great News! Our stations project was funded today! Thank you to everyone who voted!! Now we are working to get new accessories for our iPads. Week those votes coming! :)


Here's how you can help:

Vote: Each day visit the project page and vote! You earn more votes by sharing the project on social media and through email.

Eat/Drink at Sonic: Each time you make a purchase at Sonic they will give you a sticker with a code on it. This code is worth TWO extra votes! Many times if you will ask they will give you additional stickers. You can just send these to school with your kiddo and I will enter them for you! :)


Please click here to vote for our project.

Sweaters and Jackets!

As cooler weather approaches, please make sure that your child's name & "Ms. O'Quin" is written in their jacket or sweater. This will help us get the item back to you in the event that it is lost!

Box Tops

Please clip Box Tops and send with your student to school! Money from the Box Tops goes directly back to our classroom!
