Did you know?
The Oysterponds School is the designated emergency shelter for Orient/Orient Pt. residents and the Greenport School is the designated emergency shelter for East Marion Residents. We truly hope that we never need to use them, but it is always good to have a plan in place. Experts tell us to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside help arrives. Prepare a shelter kit to bring with you to include the following: 1) Change of clothing, rain gear, sturdy shoes, 2) Toiletries and personal items, medications, 3) Blankets or sleeping bag and pillow, 4) Identification, 5) Games, toys, books, 6) Special items for infants or elderly, 6) Non-perishable foods, 7) Sufficient water for 3 days, 8) Cell phone, flash light, extra batteries. Thanks to the Red Cross, we have a supply of cots and blankets readily available.
Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday break with family and friends and that you enjoyed some rest and relaxation. Our holiday concert in December was a huge success! Thank you to Mrs. Bogden and Miss Caviglia for their amazing work in preparing the students in chorus, band and violin. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs. Sanders for always making the school look so cozy and inviting. A wonderful time was had by all.
If you are curious about Ancient Egypt, stop by the Intermediate 2 classroom. Students are researching a variety of subtopics, as well as incorporating art into their research.
Intermediate 1 students invited me in help with their STEM project. Students worked to construct a wheel using a spool, a rubber band and a pencil. The "cars" were flying around the classroom! Such a wonderful lesson on Potential and Kinetic energy.
We have many exciting activities planned for the second half of the school year. Please check your child's backpack for our Oysterponds Fan Gear flyer. Orders for OP apparel can be made online at eesg.biz/oysterponds_elementary. Hurry! The sale begins January 7, 2020 and ends on January 31, 2020.
Please make sure to note dates and times your child is participating in After School activities. If you need another copy of the schedule of activities, please phone the school.
As we head into colder weather, please send your child in with appropriate outdoor clothes. Recess is held outside, except for when it is raining.
Thank you! Please email me with any questions or concerns! Have a wonderful week!
