Job Opening at Olive

We are currently looking for an Instructional Assistant to join our team. If you, or someone you know, is interested, please apply online, call or email me for more information.

Do you Sew?

Our PTO is looking for a volunteer to help with a sewing project. Please contact me, for more information, if you are interested in helping out.

Box Tops for Education

We still collect Box Tops for Education. Please keep clipping and submitting. Charts to glue them on can be found in the lobby area on our resource bookshelf. The students are welcome to grab them whenever needed. You can always help yourself to any items found here too. We use the funding from Box Tops on many different things for the children. The most current purchase, was the Lexia Reading program for all students in grades K-5. Thanks for your support in clipping those Box Tops.

Pick Up Line- Dismissal

To ensure the safety and efficiency of our pick up line at dismissal, we ask that all students enter the car from the passenger side. We also ask that if students need assistance buckling, that you park and walk up to get them. Our goal is to get students dismissed as safely and quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding. Please also communicate this information to anyone who may pick up your child from school.

Student Drop Off is 7 AM

Please remember that students should not be dropped off prior to 7 AM. There is no supervision prior to this time. Thank you!
