Little Free Library
Have you noticed our new Little Free Library on school grounds, located next to the mailboxes? Little Free Libraries are libraries that are open to the community 24/7 and stocked with books for anyone to borrow. Our library is full of titles that will appeal to all ages, and operates on a “take a book, leave a book” policy. Borrow one for as long as you’d like and return it or another book in its place. Our Little Free Library was funded through a grant by Rockingham Education Foundation, Inc. Stop by and borrow a book. Find us on Facebook: @oeslittlefreelibrary

The 2018 production of Disney's Aladdin Kids is fast approaching! Our cast members are working very hard during practice times and are excited to show you the finished product soon!
