Findley Elementary School
December 6, 2019
Please come into the office with your child or complete the form that has been sent home so that they may pick a star.
All presents are due back to the school no later than December 17.
Parents, by now you should have received an email from me if your child is participating in OBOB. If you have not, please email me so that I may add your correct email address to my database. I had a meeting today with all the OBOB participants to go over the rules and procedures, there will be a follow up meeting with the participants next Friday to answer all their questions. At this point your child should be reading lots of OBOB titles.
The battles will begin on Wednesday, January 22nd. Our official OBOB page can be found on the Findley School Website under Academics, this page lists the titles, thousands of practice questions, and will eventually have the Battle Schedule. Also please consider volunteering as a battle moderator. It is great fun and I will be asking for volunteers after the winter break. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Keep Reading OBOB Dragons !!!

Be Mindful in the Parking Lot
- When dropping off your student on school grounds, be sure to follow the school’s Arrival/ Departure procedure to help ensure safety and efficiency for all.
- Know the plan, follow directional arrows and volunteers.
- Pull forward as far as possible before dropping off.
- Students MUST enter/ exit vehicle onto/ from the sidewalk.
- Students must cross at intersections: DO NOT wave students across travel lanes.
- 5 mph/ maximum speed to school property.
- When dropping off, driver must stay at wheel.
Please park the car if you need to: walk your student to the door; watch your student enter the building; get supplies from the trunk; help with a coat or backpack; or send your student off with anything more than a wave or good-bye.
Thank you for keeping the parking lot flow smoothly so everyone can stay safe and be where they need to be in a timely fashion.
