PRINCIPAL'S Message                4-18-14    

Olive Families,

Reminder next week we begin state testing. Be sure your child has a good breakfast and plenty to eat during the day.  Make sure they get to bed early.  Children this age need at least 10 hours of sleep.  Testing is very challenging and they need to be well rested and have proper nutrition.

April 22 we will be celebrating Earth Day with an assembly at 11:40 a.m., Cool the EARTH.  Olive students will learn how they can do their part to “Cool the Earth”.

 All my best,
Elizabeth Sesma-Olinyk


 Practice Test State Testing
We are quickly approaching state testing, end of April, beginning of May for all our third through fifth grade students.  All K-5th grade families are invited to go on the CDE website and check out the questions our students will be facing.  The state tests are computer based.  Students will be taking them in the computer lab or in their classroom on Chrome books.  Please use this link to preview the test.

The Tour of Novato is Back!
If you haven't signed up to ride or walk in the Tour of Novato yet, now is the time! Just log into to get started. This is a great family event, with fun for all ages.

Support for the Tour of Novato Fundraiser at Olive will help fund an art closet vital to running the district's wonderful new Art Program, "Arts Attack," a sequential, standards-based curriculum which will provide our kids with the true art instruction they need. Specifically, funds raised will be used to:
  * Purchase needed art supplies
  * Purchase organizational tubs for the art closet
  * Supply Olive with funds to replace art materials as needed
