Dear OHS Families,
It is another busy week at Osborn Hill.
Grade 2-5 OHS STEAM Night this Thursday
As a reminder, OHS STEAM Night is coming up this Thursday, March 30th, from 6:30-8:00 pm for students in grades 2-5 and their families. Please see the attached flyer for more information. The flyer includes links for the certain activities that require advanced sign up. Each student may be signed up for ONE sign-up activity for the night.
There will also be many walk-in activities that do not require prior reservations.
We ask that there be an adult in attendance with each student. It is fun to go through the activities together. We have many staff members helping make the event possible, along with some staff from the public library, and I want to thank everyone for giving of their time to make this possible.
St Baldrick’s Thank You
Friday night’s Team Teddy St Baldrick’s event was a special night of current and returned students and families supporting a wonderful cause. We had several staff members who volunteered to run games and activities as part of the event as well. Many thanks to everyone who provided baskets to raffle, baked goods to sell, and supported shavees. I am looking forward to seeing some shaved heads Monday morning.
SBA Testing Schedule for Grades 3-5
Our grade 3-5 students will begin their Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) state testing after April break. Students will participate in this online test a little bit each day during the weeks below.

Class Placement Letters- Due Date Approaching
As a reminder, we will again be accepting letters from families to provide information to our placement teams. Please see the linked letter for more information about the information we will accept. Please know letters containing information we do not accept will be returned. Please send letters in by April break (by April 6, 2023) to Terry Budlowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can organize the information over the break in preparation for our placement teams.
This past Thursday Ramadan started. I want to wish families celebrating health and prosperity this Ramadan. If there are any adjustments to the school day that would help your child during Ramadan (for instance, a location other than the lunchroom if they are fasting), please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher. We would be happy to support in any ways we can.
Have a good week,
