Principal's Message: 05/13/24

Dear OHS Families,

I want to wish all the moms and mom-like figures in our community a very happy Mother’s Day!  I hope you felt appreciated and celebrated over the weekend. 

Staff Appreciation Week

This coming week, we celebrate our amazing staff at OHS during Staff Appreciation Week. Our dedicated teachers, support staff, paraeducators, office support, custodians, and everyone behind the scenes play a crucial role in shaping the educational experience of our students. Their unwavering commitment, creativity, and passion create a nurturing environment where our students can thrive and succeed. I am continually inspired by their hard work and devotion to our school community.

Spring Concert this Week

On Thursday our grade 4 and 5 orchestra, grade 5 band, and grade 5 chorus will be performing in the OHS Spring Concert.  The morning concert will take place at OHS with other grade levels of students as the audience.  In the evening, the concert will be for families and will take place at Fairfield Woods Middle School Auditorium.  Our students have been working really hard to prepare for the concert and it will be a treat to see how much they have grown as musicians over the year.  Thanks to Mrs. Trombley, Ms. DiMeglio, and Mrs. Haskitt for their work in preparing our students.

Art Show Thank You

Last Tuesday, we had an amazing art show featuring work from our third, fourth, and fifth grade students.  It was wonderful to see the creative pieces our students have been working on throughout the year.  Thank you to our art teacher of the upper grades, Mrs. Nokta, who organized the show, Mrs. Grabinski for her work in preparing our students in past art years, and the many parent volunteers who prepared everything for the show and cleaned up at the conclusion. It was an amazing show!

Walkathon

This Friday morning is our big Walkathon. Beyond being an important fundraiser for our PTA, it is a wonderful opportunity for all our students to engage in an activity all together at once. Thanks to Rachel Parrish and Courtney Cataldo for organizing the event. We will end the walk in the back field with some stretching together and celebrating. More details below.

CARES Council Safety Patrol

This coming week, you will see some extra helpers at dismissal time as our Fifth Grade CARES Council members start their Safety Patrol positions.  They will be helping at the lower wing pickup loop and in loading students on busses safely.  The main responsibility is being a positive role model to our younger students and we appreciate their dedication.  Big thanks to Mrs. Day for organizing the Safety Patrol and making this possible.

Have a great week,

David
