Sept. 12th Principal's Update

Dear OBE families,

I hope you enjoyed the warm weekend. It felt like a summer day all weekend long. I am looking forward to a bit of cooler weather this week. As we start our third week, please remember beginning this week our kindergarten will be back on the standard schedule with only Thursday as the minimum day from this point forward. There will be some added minimum days in November for parent conferences and we will give you plenty of notice as those dates draw near. 

Looking for a way to get involved? Well, this is your lucky day. OBE is looking for parents to serve on our School Site Council. What is School Site council, you ask? Please see the below:

School Site Council is composed of equal numbers of staff and parent representatives who serve a two-year term.  They meet a minimum of eight times a year to oversee the implementation of various programs in the school, including state and federally-funded programs.  The School Site Council is a governing body that is responsible for deciding how to best utilize Title 1 categorical funds to improve the instructional program here. The School Site Council members work together to set goals for improving student achievement at the school and allocating the funds to accomplish those goals.

If you are interested we would like to her from you. Please click this link to print a nomination form SSC Nomination Form 2021-22 . Please complete and have your student return it to school by Thursday Sept. 16th. Paper nomination forms will also be distributed to students to take home tomorrow.
