OBES Reading Fair projects are due at school on January 11th. All students who enter get to attend a movie and popcorn party at school. Need more information? Send your teacher a note or call the school at 895-2256.


Perfect Attendance Pizza Party! If your child is here every day in January and on time daily, he/she will get free pizza, courtesy of Domino’s Pizza. Tardies and early checkouts will count against perfect attendance. The pizza will be given out at lunch on Friday, January 27th.


Kindergarten students are starting to read books for Accelerated Reader tests. Whenever they pass an AR test, they get a ticket. These tickets are then traded in for prizes from the AR cart once a week. You can check out AR
books at the Olive Branch Public Library as well.


With the possibility of inclement weather:

Report cards will come home Thursday. By the end of the year, kindergarten students MUST be reading independently on at least a Fountas and Pinnell Level C. First grade students MUST be reading independently on a Level I. Conferences with your child’s teacher may be set up by calling the office at 895-2256.
