Week 7

Iowa Testing Continues

Follow up from Parent Ed Night: Rolling backpacks are approved. Please only take home the textbooks you need for homework each night. Everything does not have to go home every evening, especially during testing week when homework will be very limited.

Testing will continue this week. Please be on time. There are no make up tests. If you miss a day or even part of a day, your test results will not be complete.

On FRI OCT 16, OLA will participate in the first Diocesan multi-site disaster drill. Between 1-1:30pm, we will get the call to begin. All classes will take their belongings with them and walk to the fire station at the corner of 40th and Electric, where parents will pick students up at the regular time. Permission slips and further details are included in the October tuition envelope. If you do not want your child to participate in this event, they need to stay home or be picked up from OLA no later than noon. There will be no extended care this day. Free dress for turning in your permission slip is MON OCT 5.

The Free for 4 free dress day is THU OCT 8. Free dress for $1 is FRI OCT 9. We will also have assembly that day at 8am.

Gradelink is our most important form of communication. Please check it weekly at a minimum. If anything needs clarification, my email address is nystrom@olabruins.com.

iPad apps to download (so far) include: Duolingo, Spelling City, Google Drive, Stock Market Game, Yahoo Finance, and iPad Calculator.


There will not be any homework during testing, save for a good night’s sleep and an energizing breakfast. This will be a good opportunity for you to work on your Reading Fair project.
