OR Expectations: Safe, Respectful, Responsible


Here are some helpful tips you can use to reinforce these three school-wide expectations:
  • Remember that the school day starts at 9:00 and ends at 3:15.  Students should be here on time, but not too early.  There is no supervision for students before 8:50.
    If you are picking your child up at day's end, our doors open for dismissal at 3:10.  Try to get here at that time rather than coming early.  Early dismissals can be disruptive to learning, and our days are full to the last minute!
  • Ask your child if he or she has earned any Bus Bucks!  This is an incentive to encourage safe, respectful, responsible bus riders.
  • Set a regular evening routine, including bedtime.  Children thrive on routines and then are rested and ready to start the next day's adventures on time!
  • Check your child's backpack every day.  Help celebrate their daily accomplishments!
  • Talk about the week's positivity trait and what that means to your child.  This week we learned about curiosity, and next week we will focus on teamwork.
  • Remember to bring your ID if you come to school, and thank you for adhering to our visitors' rules.
Next week...
  • Tuesday, 9/24, 7:00 p.m. - Come meet our new Superintendent, Mr. David Bills, at the high school LGI room.
  • Thursday, 9/26, 8:00 a.m. - Orchestra rehearsal begins in the gym.
  • Friday, 9/27 - School Store is open during student lunches. This happens only once per month.

Together Everyone Achieves More!

As we embark on our first full week of school, it's a good time to start planning how you might get involved as the year progresses.  Our OR PTA is instrumental in providing many events and activities for all of our children, and you can help!  Maybe you'd like to volunteer at a particular event, or participate in an activity; maybe you just want to hear more about what our PTA has to offer.  Please join us at our first PTA meeting on Tuesday, September 10, 6:30 p.m. in our library.  Thank you, in advance, for your participation, as these events are only possible because of the support we receive from home!

See the attached flyer regarding an opportunity to meet our new Superintendent, Mr. David Bills.
