What's Up At The Nest...

Principal's Message

OMS Families,

We can't believe it is already April 9th! Our school year seems to be flying by now more than ever. We hope that you found time to enjoy some of the beautiful weather this week, minus the snow flurries that I saw outside my window earlier this afternoon.

As a reminder tomorrow, Friday, April 10th and Monday, April 13th there are no remote learning activities. Dr. Bein sent email communication on April 3rd indicating that we are making changes to our remote learning plan and format. Our teachers are working hard to update lessons and provide valuable at-home learning experiences for your children.

Please continue to reach out to us with feedback, questions, or concerns. We are grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Erin, Julia, & OMS Staff

We Miss OLIVE-U! Staff Video

We compiled this video and meant to send it last week to welcome everyone back from Spring Break! I continue to work on my imovie skills and am finally able to share with a lot of help from our tech facilitator Mrs. Seisser! It is long (21 minutes) but we hope your child enjoys seeing many familiar OMS faces! ~Erin

AHCPTA Scholarship Fundraiser

Now more than ever we can all use the reminder to Keep Calm and Go Outside!

D25 families are invited to support the Arlington Heights Council of PTAs Scholarship Fund by purchasing a Keep Calm and Go Outside T-shirt (Winning Design by Sofia a 2nd grader at Dryden Elementary).

Profits from t-shirt sales will go toward the 2021 D25 Scholarship Fund that benefits current D25 students as well as graduating high school seniors. T-shirts will be shipped to the Scholarship Coordinator and distributed in May.

May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. Watch for future notifications on sharing how you Keep Calm and Go Outside!
