OLSON STAFF SHOUT OUT

Olson Staff "Shout Out" - A positive culture and climate is a BIG part of Olson Elementary School. We strongly believe that this supports and motivates our staff to reach higher and higher levels of professional practice. In turn, this positive culture leads to increased student achievement.

Please take a moment to send a shout out or tell a story about a staff member who has gone above and beyond for you and your family. These shout outs and stories will be shared at future staff meetings. Our teachers work SO HARD all year and it truly makes their day when they hear from you! We enjoy and celebrate our profession with these stories!

SCHOOL PICTURE DAY - SEPT 20

Student photos will be taken on Friday, September 20. Information about purchasing photos will be sent home soon. We work with Inter-State Studios. These photos are also included in the Olson School Yearbook. We will also share information about how to reserve a copy of the 2019 - 2020 yearbook!

BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL

Breakfast is served daily in the cafeteria from 7:20-7:40 AM. We encourage our students to eat all of the breakfast, however if they don’t finish it, they may take some items with them for a snack later in the day. The cost per breakfast is $2.20, and students who qualify for reduced $.30 and free-lunch is $.00. Perishable items such as milk, juice, yogurt and hot breakfasts (eggs, hash browns, pancakes, etc.) should be consumed in the cafeteria. The rest can be brought with the students to eat later (like during the classroom snack or after school at home). Students who arrive after 7:40AM are offered a "Grab and Go" breakfast that may be eaten in the classroom or hallway before class begins.

COLOR RUN 2019 - SEPT 13

Our 5th annual Color Run will take place on Friday, September 13th from 5PM - 7PM in the back field at Olson. Packets and collection envelopes were sent home with students the first week of school! T-Shirts and color packs will be distributed at the run.


Congratulations to OES 5th grader Allie Handy for the design for our Color Run T-Shirts!


In order for a student to participate we ask that they collect at least $15 in pledge money. Immediate family members can join the students for FREE. Additional T-shirts and color packs are available for purchase. Teachers and staff are always welcome to join us and we welcome volunteers to help at a station or to help with encouraging runners or passing out supplies!

BAND 2019 - 2010 - INFO FROM MRS. SCHWEIHS

5th Grade- it's time to JOIN BAND!!

All 5th grade students should have brought home the 2019 Olson Band Handbook/registration materials to share with their families. Everyone has seen Mrs. Schweihs play the instruments, and watched a video that includes past students sharing thoughts about their band experience , and ton of pictures of what band looks like! Interested students have begun trying the instruments. Registration forms are due soon. Please encourage your child to give it a try! It is a lot of fun. Even if they haven't enjoyed past musical experiences, perhaps they just haven't found the RIGHT instrument! Check out this movie about how 5th band works in D200, and these video links from my website to hear the instruments in action! JOIN BAND- you'll never know if you will like it unless you try!
