These days will be used for Teacher Professional Development.

Please make appropriate arrangements to pick up your child on time on those three additional minimum days.
Love and Logic
The following training is for OUSD parents who want to learn how to work effectively with their children by implementing proactive strategies.
This 6 week training will show parents how to:
· Put an End to Arguing, Back Talk, and Begging
· Teach Responsibility Without Losing their Love
· Set Limits Without Waging War
· Avoid Power-Struggles
· Guide Kids to Own and Solve Their Own Problems
· Teach Kids to Complete Chores…Without Reminders and Without Pay
Parents will learn how to spend less time and energy disciplining, while increasing cooperation and responsibility from their child – and build a strong parent-child relationship in the process!
The training will be led by the OUSD Mental Health Itinerate Team (MHIT), who have been trained by the Love and Logic Institute in Colorado. This is a great opportunity for parents to take advantage of the resources our district has to offer. Pl
Parents are urged not to miss this fantastic opportunity to get some amazing, tried and true techniques and tips, and help make their family life even better!
Adult volunteers are needs to help with the green team any day from 12:15-1:30. Please contact Ms. Orbaugh.

Chocolate Milk District Presentation
On Thursday, October 1st, a team of sixth graders presented their opinion about a controversial issue to the OUSD Wellness committee. Beginning this journey last year, it’s the students’ hope that the evidence they presented will persuade the district to put chocolate milk back on the school lunch menu. Let’s give a big “Shout Out” to these dedicated students who are trying their best to convince our leaders that student’s opinions and words matter!
