Today is the start of Teacher Appreciation Week.  We have so much to be thankful for here at OE.  Your teachers have always gone above and beyond for their students but this year has brought a new level of need for creativity and dedication and they have met that challenge over and over.  Today is a good day to thank a teacher!

If you need a clean paper copy of the mask design, we have plenty in the office. The creative writing contest also ends today, & that can be turned in digitally by 3:00 to the link provided on the flyer. Only 7 have been turned in so far!
