School is out for summer...almost!

Wow, we are in the last month of the 2016-2017 school year! Thank you for all of your support this year, and we have had a truly amazing year.

Thank you to all the families who gave money to purchase the new laminator for the school!  The teachers and staff were very excited and appreciative.  Because of your generosity, we even had money left over.  The PTA voted to purchase a new giant parachute for Mrs. Bruecher, which ALL the children will get to enjoy both in PE and during Field Day.  Thank you!!

OV's final movie night was fun and well attended! Thank you to all who joined and watched Moana and a huge shout out to the OV community who helped make this happen!  Keep an eye out for the next movie in the fall.

Thank you to all for making this year's Hootenanny truly amazing!  Thank you to all of the students for sharing your wonderful talents!  Thank you to all of the parents and staff who volunteered their time to make this a great success!

For those of you with incoming kindergarteners this fall, please be sure to register your child in Jump Start.  "Jump Start takes place each morning, Monday through Friday, the week of August 21-25, 2017. The program is FREE and the goal is to help children feel more comfortable and ready for school. Because Seattle Public Schools is unable to offer transportation, we ask that you plan to drop off your child each day (by 9 am) and pick him/her up (by 12 noon)."  If you did not get a Jump Start enrollment form, here it is.

There are also 3 kindergarten play dates scheduled this summer, all taking place at the OV playground:  Sunday, July 23 at 1 PM; Wednesday, August 2 at 6:30 PM; and Tuesday, August 15 at 10 AM.  There will be a picnic after the third day of Jump Start, Wednesday, August 23 at 12 PM. Please bring a lunch for yourself and kindergartener and enjoy meeting and connecting with other OV families.

OV is a Community

In light of the news out of DC, as well as demonstrations around the city, country and world, the members of the PTA Board want to reiterate loud and clear that we are here to support ALL of our students and families, no matter where you’re from, what you believe, or what your immigration status may be.  If you or someone you know could use some help, we will do what we can to support you.  If you have ideas about how the OVPTA can be more supportive of our families who might be feeling particularly vulnerable at this time, please email us at olyviewpta@gmail.com.  Thank you!

Please note that membership is not required to receive information, but if you want to be included in the emails and updates, please be sure to register.
