Arts Festival

over 2 years ago

What better way to learn about a different culture than through the arts?  Every year in the spring time, OGP holds its annual Arts Festival.  On this day, students get to learn about a culture other than their own through pieces of famous artwork, nature, music and movement, and stage performances.  Don't be surprised if your little person comes home telling you have to sit appropriately on the floor for a Japanese Tea Ceremony or teaches you how to do the "Chicken Dance".  This is a day for parents to come celebrate this great world of our and its diversity among its people.

School Hours are 7:40 - 2:10  (SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN BEGINS AT 7:00 am)
Carline Reminders:
  1. Car tags must be visible when you are dropping off in the morning.

  2. Please use the left lane and the center lane for morning drop off.

  3. ONLY use the bus lane (far right) when you are directed to do so.  We only use the bus lane when most of our buses have passed.  

  4. Students MUST be let out of the car by an adult. DO NOT let your child out of the car in the curve by the PAC.  Please wait until you pull up to a teacher on duty.  We complete this process more quickly if you watch the duty teachers and pull all the way up!

  5. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR CURRENT CAR TAG VISIBLE IN THE AFTERNOON WHEN PICKING YOUR CHILD UP.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR CAR TAG, YOU MUST PARK, WAIT UNTIL TRAFFIC HAS CLEARED (AROUND 2:30), WALK INTO THE OFFICE, AND SHOW YOUR IDENTIFICATION BEFORE WE WILL BE ABLE TO RELEASE YOUR CHILD TO YOU.  IT IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY TO KEEP EVERY CHILD SAFE.

 
School Every Day: Make Every Day Count
 
The Importance of Attendance:
* Attendance matters for doing well in school and life
* Attendance helps develop good habits
* Too many absences will slow down instruction for all students
* Children will suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days
* Chronic absences is a leading warning sign that a student will drop out
* Poor attendance affects funding your local school and school district

Holiday in the Grove

over 2 years ago

We are coming up on our 18th year to host OGP’s Holiday in the Grove. This is such a wonderful night of entertainment, food, fun, and SANTA!!! In the month of December, our students demonstrate their talents through music and dance on stage for a live audience. There is no better early Christmas gift than watching a group of Christmas trees or reindeer parading across the stage while the chorus of elves serenades you! After the curtain closes, you are invited to meet your child at his/her classroom where you will receive a student-made ornament. In addition, every student makes a personalized, ceramic ornament. For a minimal cost of $5.00, you can purchase this keepsake and display it year after year. The fun doesn’t end there… Food vendors, the “Sweet Shoppe”, hot cocoa,and Santa Claus await you! Look for notes to come home and/or read your child’s weekly newsletter for more information.
