Used Book Sale 

Friday June 17   3:45pm- 6:30pm

Saturday June 18  10am- 3pm


Donate books!  Please bring in your gently used books that are in good condition. We will be accepting only children’s books this year for age preschool-young adult, (age 14-16). We are in search of high quality, high interest books, classics and mid to upper grade chapter books. Bring books to school and put in yellow donation bin outside near front entrance.    OR  Bring books to Cloud City Coffee. 

Book donations will be used to give a free book to every OV student to help our readers continue to learn and "soar" this summer!   Extra books will be sold as the used book sale.   Clean off those shelves and then restock!

Can you help???  The Used Book Sale team is looking for help.   Our librarian (and OV parent) Corrinna Wright needs a team of people to help her make this event a success.  

Sign up for a shift or contact her at 206-252-5496 or e-mail cewright@seattleschools.org for alternative times or jobs.


Field Day   Friday June 10

Join us for this all-school event!!!  It requires volunteers to help make it a success.  It starts with a barbecue lunch that parents help cook!  After lunch,  the afternoon is filled with 18 different activities that highlight some of the skills the kids have learned all year in PE. 

We need volunteers to help cook and serve lunch and volunteers to help out at each station.   Ms. Bruecher provides the supplies and directions!  Sign up here:http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e044aaaad2aa0f49-olympic

All volunteers need to have to volunteer paperwork up to date and on file in the office.    Follow these on-line directions or pick up a hard copy of the paperwork from the office.  All paperwork needs to be turned in at the OV main office before field day.

One more way to support our OV staff!

The website GoFundMe is having a contest until May 31st.    If a teacher sets up an account  AND  has at least 5 people fund it  AND has $100 in the account, they are eligible for matching funds of $100.  The teachers will be able to use your donations for anything in their classrooms.   The PTA has worked with the OV staff and wants to share the following links for our building.     Any donation amount is ok.    Hopefully some of our teachers will win some matching funds!
