Otisville Elementary students celebrated International Peace Day by participating in Pinwheels for Peace. The United Nations General Assembly designated September 21 as United Nations International Day of Peace.  “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” is this year's UN theme.  Mrs. Hughes led students in a song and presentations were made by Mrs. Mynders, Mrs. Louey, and Mrs. Bendlin's classes.  Mrs. Frawley's class led the the student body in reciting The Peace Pledge.  Students held their pinwheels to the sky and pledged to make peace a part of their lives. 


The celebration also launched Otisville Elementary School's annual PBIS program.  Mrs. Alder's class showed Otisville PRIDE as Otis, Olive, and Maggie demonstrated their best behavior.

The Early Dismissal Drill is part of the county-wide Emergency Management Plan to test that phase of the drill. It has been scheduled for Thursday, September 17. Each of our school buildings will dismiss fifteen minutes earlier on that day, and there will be no PM Club Kid. Our athletes must also leave campus, but can return later for practice/game. Coaches will provide information on the afternoon schedule to team members.  We appreciate your help and cooperation and ask that you make appropriate arrangements for the early arrival of your children as a result of the drill.
