December 12, 2019

Save the Date! 
Our drama club has been preparing for a holiday performance of the Grinch. Unfortunately we have no space available to perform before the holidays. We have decided to perform on the first Friday after we return from the holidays. The kids have been working very hard on this and we are excited to perform on Friday, January 10. We will do one performance in the morning after announcements and one after lunch.

Last year we partnered with Socks 4 Souls and started a sock drive for the homeless. We decorated our holiday tree at the school with socks we collected and we would like to continue this again this winter. The Owen Spirit Council asks that each family bring a pair of new, cotton socks to the Winter Concert on December 12th or anytime this week.

Winter is here with lots of snow and wet grounds.  Recess and lunch times are excellent opportunities for students to get fresh air and exercise outside.

Students are expected to be outside unless they are involved in an activity or have a doctor's note stating they need to stay indoors.


Please help your child prepare for the winter weather with a warm jacket, boots, mitts and hat.  Indoor shoes are also required to change into during class to help keep our classrooms and school clean.

Traffic Safety: Safety over Convenience

We are working together as a community to create safe passage to and from school.  We have increase supervision as much as we can and have occasional help from the local police department as well.  Some big danger zones include:



- parking near the loop entrances

- parking in the front or back loop

- parking on the crosswalk in the back loop



Please see the pamphlet that was distributed today.  If you see unsafe situations, please report it to the office immediately.
