OWES News Update - Week of June 24th
Posted on 06/01/2021
What a busy week!  The OW Wave, grade 3 leaving Goodbyes, various class Google Meet parties and activities, and some kindergarten surprises were great ways to finish the year.  There was so much to celebrate!

Together, we overcame a number of challenges and experienced a new way to learn.  Through open communication and perseverance, we made it to the end.  Our many successes were thanks to the exceptional OWES staff, generous OWSAC members and other volunteers, supportive families, and fantastic students.  We are quite the team!

On behalf of the entire OWES team, we wish you and your family a safe and happy summer!  See you in September.
