Learning to Lead October 2021
Ott Bear Cubs are "Paws"itively Awesome Leaders!
Parent Teacher Conferences are Coming Soon
Fall parent teacher conferences are right around the corner, October 19 and 20. We look forward to sharing your child's progress with you! Classroom teachers sent information home and emailed every Ott family a conference sign-up link. Please be sure to select one day and one time that would be most convenient for you to attend a conference with your child's teacher.
Because your time and participation during this conference is so valued and appreciated, please make childcare arrangements for younger siblings. If you need assistance signing up for a conference time or if you have any questions, please give us a call at 521-5435. We are happy to help!

Thank you for all your contributions during ISD's Foundation Week! Together, we raised over $1,700. Way to go Ott Bear Cubs!

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Beginning with the End in Mind has students learning to think ahead, setting goals, considering consequences, and participating in the development of expectations. Students participate in activities that help them understand the impact of self-awareness, internal motivation, and the role of personal responsibility in achieving goals. Students also learn how setting goals helps improve academic performance.
