Please remember to pick up your child's medication at school by Friday, June 16, 2023. We are unable to send medications home with our students and they cannot be stored over the summer. Any medication left after June 20, 2023, will be properly disposed of. If your student has a life-threatening condition, medication must remain at school until the end of the school day on Friday, June 16, 2023.

Reminder: All health plans and healthcare provider orders are good for one school year only. If your child needs a health plan or needs to take medication during the school day for the school year 2023- 2024 (this includes any prescription, over-the-counter medications, or inhalers used at school, during team sports practices, or after-school activities), please download the appropriate form from the district website https://www.ohsd.net/Page/2126. Forms may also be picked up in the office.

Donut Making

Mrs. Chaszar's class learned about the long vowel sounds with open and closed syllables this week. Thanks to Mr. Davenport for his assistance in helping them make donuts... he even made homemade icing for us!! YUM!

Warmer Weather has arrive!

The Sun is Here!!! Orcas are getting ready for Summer fun!! It's a good idea to wear layers - a light jacket for chilly/rainy mornings which can be removed in the warmer afternoons. PE and recess will be outside for the rest of the year. If your child sunburns easily please apply sunscreen before they leave home.

A message from Carla Hurst, OVE School Counselor

It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that after 25 years in education, I will be retiring this June. I have decided it's time to join my husband in retirement and spend some quality time with my grandchildren. My career began at the high school level and I spent 20 years working with teenagers. When I made the decision to move to the elementary level five years ago, I had no idea what to expect. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career and I am so happy I had the chance to work with the students and families of OVE. To experience the joy of students just beginning their school journey and getting to watch them grow into confident learners is an incredible opportunity. My time at OVE was not without its challenges - navigating a pandemic and its impact on students' well-being was incredibly difficult. However, OVE is a special place and I have been impressed over and over again watching our staff, students, and families rally together to wrap each other up with love and support no matter the circumstance. This is what I will always remember and I will forever feel incredibly blessed to have been a part of the good things happening here. Thank you for sharing your students' school journey with me. It is a gift I will always treasure.

Ice Cream Celebration

Ms. Cloudy's class had an Ice Cream Sundae Party. It was a fun celebration of hard work, teamwork, and using Kelso's Choices! Awesome job first graders!
