Please check the "Nurses Notes" section of the OB School Website for some important information on tick and sun safety. Also, it is a good time to revisit the school's policies on celebrations and food brought into the classroom.
Tuesday, May 13th, 2-3 pm in the Main Lobby.
Funds raised will go towards sustaining the greenhouse for another year.
Former OBS student Courtney Howell recently visited the Mutiny School in Kenya, and she discovered that it has very few books. She'd like to collect as many quarters as possible and send the school money to purchase more books.
Courtney has placed a board in our lobby with 4 clear tubes. Above the tubes she has marked 'K,1,2' - '3,4' - '5,6' - '7,8'. If you'd like to help just drop your quarters into the tubes.
The project will end when school ends in June.
