Winter is Coming!

The last few weeks have been a bit of a wild ride, and we are so thankful to Mr. Bean and the teachers and staff for continuing to make sure that OV is a welcoming and safe place for learning.  We have an amazing group of students and community of families at OV, and the diversity of our community is what makes us so rich.  We are all here to support each other and our kids. To echo Mr. Bean’s letter earlier this month, if you have any concerns regarding bullying or harassment at school, please talk to your child’s teacher then to Mr. Bean.  But also know that there are lots of parents and the PTA to turn to for support as well, and we value every single family at OV. Thank you for being a part of this amazing community.


Over $400 was raised in Quarters for Turkeys! Thank you for participating!  November 1st marked the start of our direct ask campaign, the Flying Forward Fund. The campaign is more than half over, and we have achieved 75% of our $20,000 target  We’re so close!  Help us make it to our goal so we can continue supporting OV!

Huge shout out to Kathleen Zagers for all of her advocacy and work on the growth boundaries for the 2017-2018 school year! The school board voted 6-1 to keep the Olympic View's boundaries the same.  If you have a 5th grader, middle school boundaries are still up in the air.  Stay tuned, and keep emailing growthboundaries@seattleschools.org.

Next school year, 2017-2018, the district is increasing the school day by 20 minutes.  The school board is voting in January to approve the proposal that bell times would start 10 minutes earlier and would end 10 minutes later next year. This means school would start at 7:45 am and end at 2:15 pm. In addition, every Wednesday would be a 1-hour early release, which allows for teachers to have increased collaboration time.  You can provide feedback to the district at arrivaltimes@seattleschools.org up until the vote in January.

OV Annual Food and New Toy Drive

Every year around this time of the year, we ask families that can to donate non-perishable food items and new toys to help out our eaglets that need a little extra help this year.  Non-perishable items can include peanut butter, tuna, pasta, oatmeal, rice, tomato products, canned vegetables and fruit, stew, chili, baby food and diapers.  Nurse Margaret says, "Just be sure to make sure the sugar content is low."   Have your student(s) bring in the items to the main hallway and put them in the boxes provided.  Ask your student(s) how the stack is growing over the next three weeks--it sure is nice to see the boxes fill up!

This week for new toys, we are asking for art supplies.  This could include any kind of pens or pencils, different kinds of paper, paints, watercolors, paintbrushes, pastel chalks, organizers to put art supplies in, and boxed arts and crafts.  Let you imagination run wild!  Just remember, our audience is between the ages of 1-18!
