Students who would like to show their teachers appreciation can complete the "You are Super" card for their teacher and bring it in next week. http://bit.ly/StaffAppreciationProject2021

Oster's Silent Auction is Almost Here!

Our Silent Auction is going LIVE, virtually, the weekend of May 14-16. Information regarding the website, how to log on, and how to bid will be distributed next week.

Thank you to all the families that have so generously donated to our gift baskets! We have collected some great items and can't wait for you to see them.

Keep an eye out for additional information regarding our Silent Auction next week!

Safety Reminders!

  • School Zones are 25 mph. Please slow down and watch for students and parents walking in the crosswalks and crossing the street.
  • It should only take 10-15 seconds for students to hop out of the car in the drop-off lane. Pull up as far as you can in the drop-off lane. Please ask your child to have his/her mask on and backpack, lunch, and water bottle right next to him/her in the car. Do not leave your car unattended in the drop-off lane!
  • The drop-off lane is much busier now. Kinder parents must park and walk their children to the gate. Kindergarteners need to wait with their parent/guardian for safety reasons.

Crossing Guard Needed!

Oster is seeking a crossing guard. If you are interested in this position, please contact the front office at 408-266-8121.
