FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK:

From the Principal's Desk:

It has been another amazing week here at OIS. Our Veteran's Day program was such a great way to honor our community veterans but also a great learning experience for our students. We got to ask questions and hear stories of brotherhood, dedication, and what it means to serve your country.

This week we are focusing on being thankful and I can say that I am beyond thankful to work with such a great group of students who are eager to learn and dedicated to following our life principles.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and I am looking forward to another great week. One week left before we take off for our Thanksgiving Break.


Your proud Principal,

Sara Rush

Principal
