Coffee Chat with Superintendent

We were so excited to see our families fill the Lincoln Street cafeteria on Thursday, November 30th to join Mike Scott, the superintendent of HSD for coffee. Mike had a blast meeting families, taking pictures, answering and asking questions to the most important people involved in our students' education- YOU!

OSU Latinx Family Night

Wednesday, Dec. 6th, 5:30pm

Small Groups

Mrs. Brady and some of the first-grade dual language students practice their vocabulary in English and Spanish.

One advantage of learning in small groups is that time can more flexibly be allocated to where it is needed. The informal atmosphere can often allow tutors to bring all students into the conversation, giving them the encouragement they need to participate. In smaller groups, feedback on work can go well beyond a letter grade, or a score out of 10. The more intimate environment of a small learning group is also great for building teamwork skills.
