  • Follow up on B&N – April 6 from 1-5 is when we are doing Barnes & Noble and Chick-Fil-A from 5-7. That is also Kindergarten Round Up from 2-4: we need a PTO table and volunteers to run it. The teachers have formed a committee to decide what type of event we will have at B&N by March 1st (such as science projects or some sort of STEM research project) – we may make it into a publicity event for OVS and have OWH there and flyers will be there about the school.
  • Follow up on the zoo – nothing at this point.
  • Follow up on field trips – SAC Museum on March 10th, RESPECT Group is coming out in April which will tie into the school theme of empathy.
