Dear OHS Families,

I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving and the long weekend allowed you time with family and friends to recharge. 

Turkey Trot Thanks

Last week’s Turkey Trot was great fun and the extended course made for a more challenging and interesting route.  Big thanks to Kate Fierman and Jen Evanko for organizing the event.  Also, thanks to all the volunteers along the route, who ensured all students stayed on course.  Thanks to Mr. Marko for getting all the runners started.  This was a great celebration of Thanksgiving and the collection of over 5000 non-perishable items our community collected and donated to Operation Hope last week.

Holiday Consideration

As we come out of the Thanksgiving weekend, the world around us is becoming heavily centered on the holiday season.  With three weeks until the start of Hanukkah and four weeks until Christmas and Kwanzaa, I would ask that we do our best to hold back on too much focus at school on holidays until mid-December so that we can continue to focus on teaching and learning. We will be asking Santa hats and light-up necklaces to stay in backpacks while class is in session.  We want this to be a fun season but there is much to teach and learn!  Thanks for your help with this.

Have a great week,

David
