Hello OLOL! Welcome to October!!
We have certainly had some beautiful fall days and cool evenings this week. I hope you are all enjoying this change to the seasons as much as we are at OLOL. The children have spent many learning and playing hours outside this week. We even had a surprise visit from some police officers who stopped by to chat with our preschool students while at recess. I'm sure they couldn't resist the opportunity to spend some time with our fabulous children. We are also blessed to have so many parents eager to come to school to volunteer for recess duty. I encourage you to get your fingerprints and Virtus training completed so that you can join us at recess. So far I have heard great reports from parents, children, and Mr. Long that things are running smoothly. We are very excited to have you at recess and so thankful for your interest in helping our teachers in this way.
Have a wonderful weekend. May God go with you,
