From the Principal
Hello O’Malley Families!
*Blue Ribbon! We are so very thrilled to be named 2019 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence! We were named in the category of Academic Excellence. This is a combined effort of all students, staff and our very supportive community. We know we are special, now everyone else does too! I will be traveling to Washington D.C to accept our award in November, such a proud moment. We will have a huge celebration upon my return and I’ll share my experience and the award! Stay tuned!
*Noon Duties! Once again, we find ourselves in need of noon duty supervisors for recess and lunch. We are very short and only have 2 that are able to help us out. If you have even one or two days a week, we could really use the help. We have several folks who are only on call, and then sometimes that doesn’t fill our openings. We are currently short 2 positions, please consider it, let your friends and family know as well! Let me know if you are interested. Thank you!
*Field Trips Chaperones - You may have noticed field trip requirements have been tightened up by the district. There are forms that must be filled out each and every time you chaperone. We understand the frustration with submitting them over and over. Driver’s licenses and insurance coverage can lapse from the last time you may have volunteered; this is the reason for the continued checking throughout the year. It is also very important you do not send a replacement in your place if you are unable to make it, or bring an additional adult along, without paperwork being turned in ahead of time. Each person that goes on a district sponsored trip with students must have current paperwork on file at the time of the field trip. We appreciate the help, but we cannot take any last-minute changes as there is not enough time to run through the paperwork process. Thank you for your support in making sure all students are safe and all chaperones have been properly cleared for contact with our children.
