PRINCIPAL'S Message       November 2014

Olive Families, 

Olive is a busy place these days!! We have numerous before/after school activities going on:

  • Before/After School Intervention Classes - for students that would benefit from extra grade level intervention. The classes are based upon a specific skill determined by the teacher to be focused on and then students are invited to participate
  • Homework Club - Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning Nov. 12 for 3rd- 5th grade students. Students are recommended to attend by their teachers. Students will be in the computer lab working on reading and math skills on the computer while two teachers work with small groups on their assigned homework.
  • Odyssey of the Mind - This is a new enrichment class taught by Ms. Distad and Ms. Vorhies (teacher and parent volunteer) for 3rd-5th grade students. The students will work together in a small group using the skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity to create a play, solve a problem or build a structure totally guided by themselves. The adults are just to support and provide encouragement. The student group will compete against other schools for the best solutions.  The 6 students have already signed up and the class is closed for the year.  Since this is our pilot year we hope to continue this next year with more students. 

All my best,

Mrs. Sesma-Olinyk
