What's Up At The Nest...

Principal's Message

Dear OMS families,

It was another wonderful week at the nest, we don't have much to report! We hope you enjoy the beautiful weather! If you haven't started labeling your children's winter clothing (coats, hats, mittens, etc.) now is a great time to get your sharpie out!

In continued collaboration,

Erin, Julia, and the OMS Staff

Individuals with disabilities should notify the building principal if they have a disability that will

require special assistance or services. Alternative/modified activities will be coordinated by certified staff for children who are unable to jump.

All OMS students will have the opportunity to participate in JUST JUMP and sponsorship is optional. We greatly appreciate your support and are excited for the OMS students to participate in this program again this year.
