1) If you have a child at OES and were wondering how you can help at school, this is the perfect opportunity! The OES PTA’s annual Spring Carnival committee needs YOUR help. Please consider donating your time, services, goods, whatever you can to help. Please contact Mindy Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org), Angela Hayes (email@example.com), or Holly Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get ideas and discuss how you can best get involved. Thank you in advance!
2) Junior First Lego League (JFLL) is coming back to OES again this year for 1st through 5th graders. We will be starting around January 22nd. You should see a flyer coming home after winter break. We will be meeting for an hour once a week after school for about 12 weeks. This year’s JFLL challenge is called “Disaster Blaster”. Students will use math, science, and engineering to design and build solutions to help with natural disaster injury prevention and recovery. As a bonus, this year the 4th and 5th graders will be working on some robotics programming as an extension of this year’s challenge.
