Santa Photos

Santa Claus will be at Owyhee this holiday season!!

Santa has taken time off of his busy schedule to come visit our amazing little school. Our students are lucky enough to have 2 opportunities to have their picture taken with him; December 6th and December 12th.

Red Line Photography has generously offered to take the pictures, professionally edit, and e-mail them to you! All of this for only $5 for Santa and 1 student, or $7 for Santa and 2 or 3 Students. The great thing about having them e-mailed to you is that you are free to make as many copies as you would like, share them online, or e-mail them to friends and family!

Presale tickets are available in the office. We ask that the forms and payment be returned the day before the chosen date.

Happy Holidays from you're Owyhee Family!

Holiday Food Drive Donations AT OWYHEE!

Hello Parents/Guardians/Families of Owyhee Students,

Owyhee has many families in need this holiday season. We are asking you to help us with food packages for these families. Beginning 11/26 through 12/14, we will have a food drive. Our students will put together packages for our families in need of assistance. We are very excited to support our family community.

Here are some most needed items:

Fruits & Vegetables

Canned Vegetables

Fruits canned in juice or extra light syrup.

100% fruit and/or vegetable juices

Tomato products and pasta sauces

(Reduced sodium is best!)


Canned or dried beans and peas

Unsalted nuts

Canned meats and fish (Low Sodium)
Canned meals (Soup, Stew, Chili, etc.)
Peanut or other nut butters

(All natural with no trans-fat is best)


Whole grain pasta

Regular or instant brown rice

Plain oats/oatmeal

Whole grain cereals with low sugar


Non-fat or low-fat milk

Milk alternatives (rice, soy, almond)

These items must be boxed, canned, or dehydrated so they are shelf-stable.

Pantry Staples

Canola or other cooking oils

Whole wheat or all-purpose flour

Baking powder and baking soda

Dried herbs and spices


Personal Care Items

Toilet paper


Toothpaste and toothbrushes

Soap and shampoo


Please bring items to the Owyhee office 11/26-12/14. Donations for these items will be accepted until 12/14/2018

Music Performance DVD's

A musical presentation of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas will be presented by Mrs. Stern-Wall's, Mrs. Abeyta's, Mrs. Mitchell's and Mrs. Walsh's classes on Tuesday, December 11th, at 9 a.m. in the gym.

A DVD of the program will be available for a $10 donation. We have contracted a videographer to video our program & create a DVD. Many times we want to watch our children perform, but often sacrifice ‘living the moment’ for the recording of a memory. Now you can do both. They also make a great gift for grandparents. Orders for a DVD will be taken until Thursday, November 15th. Orders must be accompanied with a donation. Checks can be made to Boise Public Schools Foundation.

Lost & Found

Please Remind your student if they are missing a item to check the lost & found!

All lost & found items will be donated on 12/7/2018
