3/6/22 Principal's Message

Dear OBE families,

It is a bit hard to believe we are already in March! This time of year things move really quickly so please make sure you keep informed by reading this weekly newsletter and anything from your child's teacher. 

From the OBE PTA: 

See you Tuesday, 3/8 at 5:45 for our March PTA Meeting! Join us to hear about all the new opportunities for Field Trips, Jogathon planning, and what positions are open for the PTA next year!

Zoom Info: https://sandiegounified.zoom.us/j/85078402551?pwd=Vno3VUFCaW54Y2o0QWx0SUZkbDBIQT09  

Meeting ID: 850 7840 2551, Password: OBPTA

Your child's clothes not fitting like they used to? Don't worry. We are here for you!

OBE Kid's Clothing Swap 

Saturday, March 12, 9am-12pm

$10 per household, Part of the proceeds go to OB Elementary PTA

NewBreak Church's Courtyard - 4694 Cape May Ave, SD 92107

Parents, bring your favorite coffee mug for bottomless coffee. If you decide to bring the kiddos with you the playground will be open for them to enjoy.

Bring whatever clothes don't fit anymore and find ones that do. These Swaps are a great circular solution aimed to eliminate waste from kids' clothes. And a great way to help parents save money.

PTA Elections are coming up for the 2022/2023 school year. We need you to step up! The roles of President, Vice President, Communications Chair, Expressive Kids Chair, Logo Wear Chair, Community Builders Chair, Healthy Choices Chair, and Memberships Chair are all open. Please email [email protected] if you are interested in any of these roles, or have any questions about the responsibilities.

Please note, there will be no Point Loma Cluster Foundation meeting this month. The next meeting of the PLCSF will be held via Zoom on Monday, April 11 at 4:30. Sharon Rubalcava, Program Manager in the Counseling and Guidance Department will join us to discuss the California Healthy Kids Survey. More information to follow. If you haven’t taken the parent version of the Healthy Kids Survey, please take a few minutes to do so now, we really value your input and benefit from your participation. Parent survey can be found here: https://wested.ugam-apps.com/wed/ts/V981

Last week we distributed to each student one Kinsa thermometer. These have other features in addition to taking temperature. If you’d like to learn more about all the features please click here https://static.kinsahealth.com/images/FLUency_Documents/ThermUserGuide_English.pdf

Primetime Fall applications for the 2022-23 school year will be available March 7th. I encourage all parents who will need this service to apply as early as possible. The program here at OBE fills up quickly. Information can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iIRa-EUeojafd7Uw7XeSL6mhrzOJTpLG/view

Finally, SDUSD recently announced a change in the mask policy. On April 4th masks will be highly recommended but not mandatory. Please know that any child’s decision to wear or not wear a mask after that date will be respected. I appreciate all your patience and support as we get through this most unusual time in the history of US education.

In partnership,

Marco Drapeau
