Halloween Fun!

Here are just a sampling of pictures from some of the OVLC Halloween activities today! We hope your children had fun. For those families who celebrate the holiday, have a safe and fun time.

Honoring Veterans Day

During the week of November 3rd, the OASD elementary schools will observe Veterans Day. We are honoring our veterans prior to November 11th in order to provide time for a special Veterans Day video collaboration with all Oconomowoc elementary schools, including those in the OVLC. As part of the observance, OVLC students in grades 4K-4th grade are invited to decorate a star in honor of a veteran or someone currently serving. A hardcopy of the star is included in your supply pick-up.

  • You may use the star below, or trace it onto cardboard or colored paper.

  • Please write the name(s) of the person(s) being honored on the star(s), along with any other information you may wish to include.

  • Feel free to include a picture of your veteran.

If you would like to participate, please take a picture of your student with their star and submit it to ellifsonk@oasd.org by Wednesday, November 5th. By emailing a photo, you’re confirm that you approve of the OASD using the photos in social media or other district publications. On actual Veterans Day, students will have the opportunity to view the video as well as view a school video honoring our veterans.
