First Grade at O.C.T.
Highlight of the Week
As spring weather begins, we ask that you please check your child’s outfits daily to make sure his/her outfit meets school dress code. Please check the length of your child’s shorts and skirts and the length/style of shirts (no camisoles, spaghetti straps, inappropriate logos etc). The district’s handbook can be found here...http://goo.gl/Df3rhZ
Annual Egg Drop April 15th
Calling all Eggstraordinary Egg Droppers! Can you figure out how to drop an egg from the roof of our school without letting it go SPLAT? Why not "eggsperiment" by designing an egg drop package for the Egg Drop Competition. O.C. Taylor's annual Egg Drop Competition will be held on Friday, April 15th at 2:45pm. Egg Drop packages should be designed and made at home, then turned in on the morning of Wednesday, April 13th. Join us on Friday, April 15th to watch as Mr. K drops the packages off the roof of O.C. Taylor! Will your egg survive the fall? Prizes will be awarded for the "Most Creative Solution" and the "Lightest Survivor Egg" in each grade level!
