On February 25 over 170 boys attended PTA's Boys' Night Out event. Early education through 5th-grade boys rotated between stations throughout the school.

All the boys enjoyed a snack and synergizing together!

Coming March 15 and 16 - Student-Led Conferences and Family Leadership Nights

We are excited to conduct student-led conferences in person this year! After your child's student-led conference, be sure to stop by the gym so your child can share all about the 7 Habits. And be sure to enter our raffle for a fabulous prize after visiting each station. Enjoy refreshments and be sure to stop by the Book Fair in the library!

Information Worth Repeating

Free Breakfast Available for All Students

All Ott students can take advantage of free breakfast to start each school day. Upon arriving to school, students in grades K-2 may pick up their breakfast from the gym. Students in grades 3-5 may pick up their breakfast from the back hall. Students will then eat with their classmates in their classrooms. Early education students will be served breakfast in their classrooms.

Connect with Seesaw

If you haven't already connected with your child's teacher on Seesaw, contact them to get connected. Seesaw is a great way to stay up to date and look at your child's work.

Birthday Celebrations

We love all kinds of celebrations at school! Student birthdays are important, so we recognize these special days during our morning announcements. If you would like to drop off a birthday treat at the office for your child to share with the class, please make arrangements with your child's teacher. Due to health and wellness policies, all treats should be store bought and individually packaged. Healthy choices such as apple slices, baby carrots, string cheese sticks, pretzels, Goldfish® crackers, Rice Krispies® treats, etc. are encouraged!
