The OLS Home and School Association helps to foster communication between the homes of our students and the school. We do this by hosting meetings throughout the school year, which give parents the opportunity to communicate with the principal, teachers, and other parents. In between general meetings, we send e-newsletters to parents and faculty to keep the lines of communication open. Click here to read past newsletters or to join our mailing list.
Home and School also takes an active role in supporting the school by organizing several fundraisers to benefit it. We take pride in the fact that parents continually come together to host, attend, and support these events for our school community. Please take a look at our schedule of events below to see what’s happening at OLS and consider attending or helping out at one of them. Active participation in the Home and School Association is essential to building a strong relationship between your home and your child’s school. We look forward to seeing you soon!
