VETERAN'S DAY

There are no classes for D200 students on November 11 in honor of Veteran's Day. Thanks to all who shared names and photos to help us recognize Olson family connections and guide students to a greater appreciation of the service these military members provide for our country.

LUCKY TRAY DAY

Enjoy lunch in the cafeteria and Thursday, November 14 and you may be winner of a LUCKY TRAY DAY prize! Mrs. Roth will mark 3 trays during each of the grade level lunch periods. These students will choose from the prize bin!

ERIN'S LAW PRESENTATIONS

In the State of Illinois, a law known as "Erin's Law" mandates that all public schools educate children about sexual abuse prevention through age-appropriate curriculum including role plays, discussions, activities, and books. The purpose of these activities is to give children the tools needed to speak up and tell an adult if anyone ever touches them inappropriately.


District 200 social workers and psychologists will present Personal Body Safety Programs in our elementary and middle schools this fall. At Olson, Mrs. Zeh and Mrs. Riley will meet with each classroom on November 14 or November 22 to discuss the following concepts:

  • Keeping yourself safe

  • Safe touch and unsafe touch

  • The Safety Rule (No one should touch your private parts, except to keep you healthy.)

  • Secrets - Good vs Bad

  • Saying "No" and running away

  • Identifying and learning to tell safe, trusted adults

Letters were sent home with information about this program. If you have any questions, please call the school office.
