OES is going to have a Wear Red Day to support the American Heart Association (AHA) on Wednesday February 14th. Through the AHA, students learn about keeping their hearts healthy and how they can make a difference in the lives of others! We are going to be selling paper hearts the week of February 12-16 in the morning and during PE for $0.25. Students can buy the hearts in honor of themselves for working towards a healthy heart, in honor or in memory of someone they know that has heart disease or has had a heart attack. The hearts will be displayed in the gym for the month of February and then the students will be able to bring them home. All the money collected will go directly to the American Heart Association to support their education and research. Encourage your students to wear red on February 14th and any other help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
From the Library
We are super proud of Brayden Gowers who represented Ottobine Elementary School in the Rockingham County Spelling Bee at Elkton Middle School on January 11. Competing against very bright students throughout our division, Brayden was one of the last remaining elementary students, and we are proud of the way he represented our school!
Students, Parents and Family Members and Friends:
We need your help! While many of our teachers are encouraging students to stay hydrated and drink water throughout the day, we have several instances where books have been returned with water damage from spills in backpacks. Please, be sure that water bottle containers have tops that are tight and secure so that they will not leak.
Thank you for helping take care of our library books!!
