Sept. 24, 2021 Weekly Update

Posted on September 24, 2021


Hello OKL Families:  What a great way to end the week– the sun is shining, and the air is still warm.  I hope this lasts through the weekend.  It’s hard to believe that we are heading into the final week of September.  I think we are all wondering how the time flies.  Please remember that we have a couple of non-instructional days next week:

o   Monday is a Pro. D. day so there is no school for children

o   Tuesday is a regular school day

o   Wednesday is our Orange Shirt Day Assembly (in-class)

o   Thursday is National Truth & Reconciliation day so schools are closed

o   Friday we will have our Terry Fox Run at 11:00

As you know, our wonderful PAC is organizing lunch opportunities for our students.  Pizza order forms have been sent out and can also be found on the PAC Facebook page.  Orders are due for next week by Saturday, Sept. 25. The first pizza day is Sept. 29.

Other on-going PAC fundraisers are Buy Low Foods and Nature’s Fare:  send your receipts to school to put in the red mailbox in the hall and the school will receive a percentage of the total sales.  You can also drop your bottles off at Interior Freight and they will donate your earnings to our school.  A final on-going fundraiser is the bottle collection at the Strand.  THANK-YOU to all the people who help make our school a great place.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.  We look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday.
