OES Grade Level Lunches in the Breezeway

Enjoying a meal together is a great way to build and strengthen our classroom communities. This year, every grade level will have a month designated where each class on the grade level will invite their parents to lunch. Each class will have a special designated day to enjoy lunch in the breezeway with their parents. Second grade is October's grade level. See the schedule below for the dates of your second grade student's luncheon event. All parents must have a gold form completed and be cleared to attend.
