“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments


Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year! We have had a fun, busy first week of school.

For morning drop off, we will have the children gather behind the ampatheatre, along the rock wall. Please remember to have your child exit the cars through the passenger side (where Carolyn and Jennifer will be opening doors - thanks!)

This week the children begin going to specialists. PE with Mrs. Christensen begins on Wednesday (please send children in tennis shoes), Library with Mrs. Lovejoy will be on Thursdays, and Music and Movement starts Friday with Mrs. Flannegan. Miss Katie visits our classroom every Tuesday to teach a program called "Second Step" - age appropriate lessons geared toward building and developing social-emotional skills.

In the classroom this week our theme is families, growing, and babies. Watch for projects involving the family and baby photos sent in. If baby and family photos have not made it in yet, please send with your child this week if possible - thanks!

Show and tell also begins this week! If it has not made it home already, a show and tell "calendar" will be in your child's file on Monday, Sept. 8. Please help your child identify what it is they are bringing, i.e. a "piggy bank" or "a baseball hat" and please help them come up with three clues they can tell their classmates about the item. The kids keep their item "hidden" and have their classmates guess what it is based on their clues! Feel free to write the clues down so a teacher can help :)

Please remember to check your child's file outside the classroom door daily.

We have two important dates coming up: Wednesday, Sept. 17, at 7p is Curriculum Night for PS/PK/K. The evening begins in the school foyer, from there we break into classes and procede to the classrooms.

Wednesday, Sept. 24th is our first field trip! We will walk to Fire Station 40 (35th and 94th) - please watch for a permission slip to be sent home this week.

Mrs. Breysse and I would like to welcome parents who are interested in volunteering into the classroom on Tuesday mornings. Please remember that volunteers are required to fill out a background check and complete the "Called to Protect" course. To accomodate time for both of these requirements, a classroom volunteer sign up will be sent out to begin the end of September - thanks!

I would like to thank Jaycee Barrett and Heather Sorenson for their role as room parents this year!

Please let me know if you have questions about anything!
