Can you please help with donating some supplies?

On Feb. 26th OES students & staff will be playing Minute-To-Win-It challenges as an all-school incentive (EC through 5th) for meeting our goal of 6,000 Dojo points in February! The students have been working hard at demonstrating our positive character traits (kindness, respect, responsibility, perseverance, honesty, and a strong work ethic). These are the items needed for each classroom to play these games:


  • plastic spoons (approx. 30)
  • plastic cups (any color or size; approx. 30)
  • plastic bowls (any color; approx. 10)
  • 2 bags of large marshmallows
  • 2 bags of small marshmallows
  • 1 bag of balloons (*LATEX-FREE)

If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact your child's teacher to let him/her know.

Please send in the item/s by Wednesday, Feb. 24th.

*Our remote-learner students are encouraged to play along at home. Their classroom teacher will share the link prior to/on the day. The teacher will also share the supply list.

Thank you for your generosity & support!

Reminders & Resources

A note from Principal Kucharski:

Recently, I've been mediating with our young students regarding issues that arise due to technology use. While at school, we do our best to monitor Chromebook & iPad use. We have discussions about acceptable sites and apps. We give reminders about not sharing personal information & acceptable chats. Please take the time to ensure your child's safety at home too. Check in on the sites they are using, the games they are playing. A lot of responsibility comes with using technology and even a phone. Is your child ready for it?

I'm also sharing this community link for Ozaukee Family Services. They offer many wonderful opportunities for groups & discussions (most virtual right now) for parents, caregivers, and children of all ages. http://ozaukeefamilyservices.org/workshops/

PTR Fundraiser

Our Racine Danish Kringle and Little Caesars Pizza Sale starts on February 22 and runs through March 4. Kringle order forms were sent home with OES students! Please see an OES family to order your Kringles! We have a few new flavors available so you don’t want to miss out! The Little Caesars sale has gone virtual – all orders will be taken online and pizza kits will be delivered right to your front door! Order Here!

Please put a spare mask in your child's backpack

Several children are needing to swap out their masks during the day due to getting them wet, dirty, misplaced, etc.

Why is washing our face masks so important?

Washing your mask is just as important, if not MORE important, than washing any article of clothing. We don’t know exactly how long viruses and bacteria can live on fabrics, but some experts feel it may be up to 8-12 hours on a cloth mask! Imagine after a long day of mask-wearing how many germs you could possibly have on your mask! Yuck. You don’t want to put that dirty mask back on your face.


How often should I wash my mask?

The best practice would be to wash your mask after every use. Wash your mask as often as you can, daily is best! It would be best to have several masks so that you will always have a clean one daily, even when the others are dirty or being washed.

For more information you can go to the CDC website OR check this out Mask washing information

Parents please try to label your child's winter gear - especially snowpants, jackets, and boots with your child's first /last name. Items get misplaced and we don't know the owner!
