What's Up At The Nest...
Dear OMS Families,
We are so thankful that this year we are planning events and bringing our community back together! Thank you to the Ecology and Book Fair PTA chairs for organizing a wonderful evening this week.
We need your help. Over the past several weeks we have noticed an increase in negative and unkind behavior of students towards other students in all grade levels. Our teachers continue to reteach our OMS expectations and we highlight our expectations on morning announcements. We are asking that families take time this weekend to discuss what your expectations are for your child at school and for interacting with others. Olive has always been a very special, very welcoming environment and our goal is to make sure OLIVE our students feel safe, happy, and comfortable at school. Thank you in advance for your help and support.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Erin, Julia, and the OMS staff
