Week 3

Guess What, it’s Another Four-Day Week!

Thank you to everyone who came and helped make Back to School Night a wonderful evening! It meant a lot to me to meet with you and tell you all about the expectations for the year. Remember, if you have any topics you would like me to cover on Parent Ed Night, please email me at nystrom@olabruins.com.

Sixth grade will once again be in charge of parking lot duty this year. We will continue to update the schedule as needed. Safety Schedule updated 9/1. I still have two holes that need to be filled if anyone is kind enough to volunteer, please email me at nystrom@olabruins.com.
