Elementary Rockin' Library Recess Starts in January!

The arrival of more traditional winter weather means that students will not have the opportunity to have outdoor recess. OAS & the PTA are offering elementary students the option of utilizing the library for reading and/or quiet activities during their regularly scheduled recess.

Library Recess will take place on Tuesdays. When considering this option, please remember:

* Lunch still takes place in the cafeteria

* Students will be escorted as a group from the cafeteria to the library for their 1⁄2 hour recess

* Students are invited to bring their own activities during Library Recess. 'No Electronics Allowed'

* This program will run for 6 weeks - the week of January 10th until the week of February 14th

* Students who sign-up commit to the 6-week program.

Please note that Library Recess will be offered on days contingent on OAS and parent volunteer availability.

Please fill out the form by January 6th.

If you have any questions, please email Jesal Gala at jesalgala@gmail.com.
