What's Up At The Nest...

12.21.18

Storytime With the Principals was so much fun (see the video of the week below). After reading We are Human by Susan Verde and Be Kind by Pat Zieltlow Miller, students from all grade levels created kindness notes that will be hidden in books at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library to hopefully brighten someone's day. Thank you so much to our parent volunteers that helped make this special activity possible, especially Deborah Oiler who coordinated all of the volunteers!


From all Olive-Us at the Nest, we wish you a happy holiday season and a new year full of laughter, love, life, and learning!
