What's Up At The Nest...
Dear OMS families,
It was another fantastic week at the nest. Our students never cease to amaze us with their learning, curiosity, kindness, and patience. Educators always say we should write a book about the funny things kids say, but I think I would write a book about all of the kind things they do. It never gets old watching our Olive Owls spread kindness - simple acts like helping pick up a knocked over pencil box or giving up their turn to someone else make the nest a very special place. With Thanksgiving around the corner, we continue to be thankful that we get to work with your children every day!
In continued collaboration,
Erin, Julia, and the OMS Staff
