The Summer Slide is Real!

Research shows that kids that do not participate in learning activities over the summer tend to "lose" some of their knowledge that they recieved during the school year. This hinders them as they prepare to start the new school year.

Here at OES, we want to stress the importance of making sure that each child has quality time participating in educational or learning activities.

You should have recieved a username and password sheet when you picked up your child's report card at the end of the shool year. These usernames and passwords are for learning websites and computer programs that your child has access to. They are familiar with these websites and it gives them lots of reading and math practice. If you did not recieve this sheet, you may contact your child's previous teacher or the office.
