What's Up At The Nest...

1.11.19

We hope Olive-U enjoyed the winter break! Students wasted no time getting back into the swing of things at OMS including setting goals for the second half of the year. So interesting to see what students hope to work on...help mom and dad load the dishwasher, be nicer to my sister, practice math facts, feed the dog. Some of our 5th graders hosted a probability fair (aka homemade carnival games) for a 2nd-grade class. Check out the video below. We love cultivating relationships between our older and younger students. On Thursday night, thanks to our awesome PTA, we enjoyed some amazing bike tricks and a great reminder to never give up our dreams thanks to Matt Wilhelm. A couple friends and I snapped a selfie when he wasn't spinning around on his bike!


Happy New Year!

Valentine's Day

Classroom Valentine's Day parties will be held on Thursday, February 14. If your child will be passing out Valentine's Day cards to other students, the cards cannot have any candy or food attached to them per the district's wellness policy. Items such as pencils, erasers, stickers, etc. are great alternatives as long as they are not edible. Goodie bags filled with treats or candy are also not permitted. PTA room reps. and classroom teachers will be sending out additional information about the parties soon. We greatly appreciate our room reps. and all of our volunteers who organize and provide fun Valentine's Day experiences for our students.
