The elves have been busy making and collecting items to keep Otisville students warm!  As she does annually, Mrs. Scherf provided every Kindergarten student with a scarf.  Mr. and Mrs. Sargent, of the Greenville Senior Leisure Club, delivered boxes of scarves, hats and gloves.  Many of the items were hand-made by the seniors.  The Otisville Elementary School is very fortunate to have such a kind, generous, and supportive community.  Thank you for caring for our children.

JDRF FUNDRAISER

Posted November 6 at 2:42pm

Thank you to the Otisville Elementary School community for supporting the 7th annual Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes.  Students learned about the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  They also learned about healthy eating and exercise habits, for which the walk served as a culminating activity.  Otisville Elementary School raised over $12,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to help fund research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.  In addition to research, the JDRF provides resources to support families who have children living with diabetes. Thank you to the Otisville Elementary School community for their continued support.

Students in Mrs. Wippel, Mrs. Louey, and Mrs. Bendlin's classes gathered to celebrate words in a Vocabulary Parade.  Students were assigned nouns, adjectives, and verbs on which they based a costume that showcased their word.  Various awards were given, none more important than the individual success of each child mastering vocabulary in a creative and memorable fashion!

OFFICER ANNA TEACHES ABOUT HALLOWEEN SAFETY

Posted October 30 at 10:53am

Officer Anna, from the Mt. Hope Police Department, visited Otisville Elementary School to review Halloween safety with students.  Following some simple rules will help everyone enjoy the Halloween evening:

  • Never go out alone.  Be sure to have a "buddy system" in place.  Trick or treating in small groups is a good way to stay safe.
  • Ask for help from a trusted adult if you get lost and never get into a stranger's car.
  • Be sure to have parents inspect candy before it's eaten. 
  • Make safe and smart behavior choices.

THANK YOU, FIREFIGHTERS!

Posted October 21 at 1:52pm

As part of Fire Safety Week, four local fire departments came to visit Otisville Elementary School. Firefighters from Greenville, Otisville, Mount Hope, and Howells fire departments instructed students about the different gear found on fire trucks and how the gear is used. We would like to thank former Otisville student, Firefighter Sarina Bodnar, and the rest of our local firefighters who took the time to teach our students about fire safety.  Your service to our school and community is greatly appreciated.
