We began the week celebrating the amount of food the 5th graders received from their Canned Food Drive.  Over 900 lbs. was collected.  The 5th graders helped the food bank make boxes of food for families in need.
Tuesday was Kinder Round-Up.  This is when incoming kindergarten students can come to the school, have a tour, and register for next year.  If you know anyone with an incoming kindergarten student, please ask if they have registered and send them our way if they haven't.  The sooner we have students register the better so we can make sure we have the correct number of kindergarten teachers.
 For the past several weeks, second grade students have been learning about butterflies.  Below are students in Mrs. Dillon's class making observations.
 Today begins our Spring Book Fair with Clifford making an appearance during morning assembly.  Tuesday is Family Night so come out and support our library!
 At the end of the day, we recognized the 2010-2011 OHE student council members.  This year 4 boys were our officers.  The group has done an outstanding job and I encouraged all 5th graders to continue to be involved at the middle school level.
