OVPTA Move-A-Thon 2019


The 2019 OVPTA Move-A-Thon Fundraiser is on Friday, April 5th!

Please be on the lookout for a large manila envelope with a pledge sheet attached in your child’s backpack.

This envelope should be used to sign up your child’s sponsors AND to collect pledges. Keep it at home until after Move-A-Thon Day on April 5th.

Once your child has completed Move-A-Thon Day and collected all money due, send the envelope back to OV! 

All money is due Friday, April 19th. Our school-wide goal is $25,000—that breaks down to about $55 per student.

Recess Supervision Volunteers Needed

Because of budget concerns, we no longer have two playground supervisors. Teachers are picking up more recess duties, but we are still unable to adequately staff lunch recesses. Therefore, we are hoping to tap into our parent community. Please follow the sign-up link: https://doodle.com/poll/23s8i7kwnqexuche.

There are 2 spots for each day (11:20-11:50 and 11:50-12:25). Parents can choose one spot or both.

After checking in with the office, volunteers will be given an orange vest and a fanny pack with band-aids, whistle, Eagle Eyes, etc. They can then check in with a staff member on duty (usually Jill Hughson) in order to get specific directions.
  

   

Volunteering at OV! 

  

Volunteers are always very welcome at OV. Help is greatly appreciated in classrooms, school events, field trips and much more.  If you are thinking about volunteering, please take the time to read the guidelines and complete some paperwork. Thank you so much for your time and talent!

 Eagle Packs


Olympic View has teamed up with the University District Food Bank to offer a supply of snacks and meals for children over the weekend, FREE of charge. Bags are distributed every Friday starting September 21st. All Olympic View students are eligible for this program. Examples of the type of food in the packs include milk, juice, cereal, soup, macaroni & cheese, tuna, snacks, and fresh fruit.
Volunteers are needed every Friday from 1:00 - 2:20 pm (small children are welcome) to help pack the food. If you have time to spare, please sign-up. Thank you for your help!


  

Drop-off/ Pick-up Safety Rules

 

  

Please do not get out of your car in the drop-off/pick-up lane (highlighted). This area is intended to be an unassisted drop-off zone. On dark and rainy days it could be dangerous to get out of the car on the driver's side and it slows down the line of cars.

For the safety of our community, please follow these important safety rules and use the drop-off lane as a drop-off only. If you need to get out of your car to say goodbye or assist young children, please park in designated parking areas.

Drop-off on 7th: Please do not drop off your child on 7th Ave on the north side of the school. This dead-end road is not a drop-off area.

Staff Parking Lot: This is NOT a drop-off zone before 8:00 am. Only if you are arriving late to drop off your child AFTER 8:00 am (and the front doors are closed), it's safest to drop them off in the back parking. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
