PTA Membership Drive
Did you know that Olive's PTA families helped to purchase the new iPads and Chromebooks in your child's classroom? The PTA also funds field trips and the new Olive In Motion morning program. 
Our membership drive is in full swing, and we'd like you to join to help provide programming and tools to help our children succeed. Membership forms can be found here. Many thanks to all the families who have already joined PTA this fall! Remember: every class that achieves at least 75% participation will get an Ice Cream Social! Contact Laura King with any questions:

 Running Club Running Club
Running Club will begin for 1st – 5th graders this Thursday, September 4th at lunchtime. Please encourage your child to participate in running club. Running club is designed to encourage our children to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle through running. Students run, skip, walk laps to accumulate miles and earn charms for each mile they run. We have special charms throughout the year for 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 miles markers – in addition to the much coveted ‘Marathon T-Shirt’ for those students who complete a full marathon over the course of the year. This year, Olive’s Running Club will be competing in the 8th Annual Swarm and Stampede in late October. Look for more information on Swarm & Stampede later this month.
