OTIS SCHOOL SUPPLY WISH LIST
Calling all volunteers!
Please remember to sign-in at the office and wear a visitor/volunteer badge EVERY time you come to help! The staff and I will ask all adults to do this, even if you're a "regular" on site. Please understand that we're doing this for everyone's safety! Thank you
WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL
Our Mission: To work collaboratively with parents, students and community members to provide a caring, inclusive, safe and engaging learning environment that promotes high achievement and personal best for all students as life-long learners.
Survey for Parents, Guardians, and Students!
AUSD has created surveys for parents and guardians and students in grades 4 through 12 to help facilitate engagement in the district's Local Control and Accountability Plan. Please take the survey yourself, and then encourage students to take it, too! (Younger students may need a little help.) The deadline for taking the surveys is April 10, 2015.
We need your input for our district’s Local Control and Accountability (LCAP) planning!
Relay For Life
Most of us have been affected by a family member or someone we know that has or has had cancer, and we all know that this is a horrible disease. Each year the American Cancer Society holds Relay for Life across our Nation. Relay for Life is a 24 hour walk in honor of those who battle cancer.
Last year was Otis School's first time to participate in the Alameda Relay for Life. This year Otis School is looking for more participants to join our walking team and to help collect money for the American Cancer Society.
The relay takes place again on the track at Encinal High School, June 20th at 9:30am and ends on June 21st at 10:00am. You can walk as much or as little as you like. During the evening of June 20th there is a beautiful Luminaria Ceremony where you can purchase a bag to decorate in honor of someone you know who has battled cancer or someone who has survived cancer. To walk the track in the evening with all the Luminaria lit is pretty amazing.
If you are interested in participating please contact Terri Cooley or Mary Scriven at Otis School to be part of our “OTIS TEAM.” We hope that the Otis Relay for Life Team will grow even bigger and raise even more money this year!!!
New District Volunteer Fingerprinting Procedures!
As of January 15, 2015 there are new procedures for AUSD Volunteer Fingerprinting.
Eager to join your child's class on the fun field trip their teacher has scheduled? Want to volunteer as your child's class's Art Docent?
Don't forget that you need to be registered with Livescan beforehand. Any volunteers who may supervise students outside the presence of certified staff must go through this procedure. Here are the new procedures:
For the paperwork, see Jan Evans in the Otis office.
