Dear Families, I hope you enjoy the evening. The students at OES are AMAZING!  Our goal as educators is to assist students on their academic journey. Predictors of academic success include family support,  encouraging our students' interests, and discovering what motivates them. It’s a journey. This evening we celebrate this journey. Enjoy the evening and thank you for all your support.   Mrs. Pebbles



All the funds earned this evening go back into an account we call, OES Supports - (nonprofit). That’s how we are putting on this event tonight and hopefully more in the future.  We, as students, play an active role in deciding what future events we would like to engage in at OES, of course we have guidance and our Principal’s permission as well. We also want to thank our amazing teachers and our families because without them we would not be able to do all these wonderful things.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!
