Thank you for your support of the Boosterthon!
Boosterthon Fit Challenge
Our Super Hero Fit Challenge was so much fun on Friday! Our students were learning about positive character traits and lots of fun exercises to do! We are so appreciative of our amazing PTO, for the their time and effort to coordinate this event. Also, thank you to our staff, who were flexible and supportive of the events and schedule changes. And finally, another heartfelt thank you goes to our families, for their financial support of this fundraiser. As of this weekend, our profit is more than $42,000! This money will go towards technology improvements. Because we exceeded our stretch goal, students will be permitted to wear school appropriate pajamas (no slippers) on 9/25.
Logon to funrun.com over the weekend if you would like to make any final pledges.
Congratulations to our Door Decoration Winners (see pictures below):
1st Place: Mrs. Graham's class (center picture)
2nd Place: Mrs. Carlson's class (right)
3rd Place: Mrs. Murphy's class (left)
Front Car Line and Buses
In an effort to be as safe as we can be, we have switched our bus pick up to the front of the school. Currently, this has added between 5-10 minutes to the car line. As with all changes, it will take some time to regain momentum to move it along more swiftly. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Student Fall Picture Retakes
Our retake day is the morning of Tuesday, September 24th. (NOTE: This is a correction from an email that was sent in error last week.) Also, retakes are available, for students who were absent or if you were unhappy with the photos received. Please return the unwanted packet on Retake Day with any special instructions.
If you have any questions regarding your pictures, contact the photographer directly at 239-273-4977 or firstname.lastname@example.org

A Message from Our Box Tops Coordinator...
Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
Please do not honk at car line- this encourages students to run out before all traffic has stopped
Remind your students to stay behind the yellow lines for arrival and pick up. This ensures that they are a safe distance from the vehicles.
Day Care Vans- If your child takes a daycare van in the afternoon, parents need to communicate absences or changes in dismissal with the daycare as well as the school.
Please do NOT use your phone in the car line, especially as you approach students and staff. We need 100% of your focus and attention to keep everyone safe. Thank you for your help.
Early Dismissal and Transportation Changes
●If your student needs to have a dismissal change email: OES.DismissalChanges@oasishs.org
●If a student needs to be picked up from the front office prior to dismissal time, they must be picked up before to 2:45. No dismissals will be made after this time.
