Thank You to Tri Kappa!

Thank you to the Orleans Chapter of Tri Kappa for donating a book to each student at OES this week through RIF. RIF stands for Reading is Fun and our students are definitely having fun reading the books they received from Tri Kappa.

Halloween Parties

This year the Halloween Parties will be held on Friday, October 28th beginning at 2:00 pm. A reminder to all parents that if you are planning on attending the Halloween Party you must have a background check on file in the office. If you do not have a background check on file you may get one by stopping in the office to fill out the necessary form. You will also need to have a color copy of your Driver’s License for the background check. Color copies can be made in the elementary office. If you need a background check please plan on coming in at least one week before the parties.

After School Pickup

Bus #12 picks up students after school in the circle in front of the OES gym. We have had an issue with the bus being able to get through sue to cars being parked in the circle. Parents picking up their children after school need to please park in the lower parking lot.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Spell Bowl

The Spell Bowl team has been working hard preparing for their competitions on October 27th and November 11th. The Spell Bowl team is made up of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders and practices twice a week to get ready for the competitions. Keep up the hard work guys!
