As the air begins to cool and summer winds down I can see the leaves starting to change already! Can it be true? Is it time for school to start again? Every year I get the same nervous feeling about the first day of school. There are new faces to greet at the door, changes to the building (new paint and carpet), the smell of new wax on the floors and new learning about to begin. This feeling of excitement has been building over the past several weeks and teachers begin to trickle in working hard to set up the classrooms and get materials ready for their students.
There are few changes you'll notice when you walk into the building on the first day of school. Our library has all new carpet and some cafe style seating. More cool furniture is on order and will be coming shortly so you'll get a chance to see it transform before your very eyes!
Our Gym has undergone a complete facelift! The walls have been repainted a beautiful two-toned teal to match the floor and wall mats. The wolf on the wall really pops out at you and is now a focal point in the room. The folding doors are also a dark teal and the floors have such a tremendous shine to them, you'll think they are still wet! You won't believe your eyes when you see it. If you get a chance to see Carl, our janitor, please be sure to compliment him on the floor- he spent many, many hours making sure it came out just right.
As always, please be sure to stop in and say hello. I'd love to spend a few moments with you welcoming you and your family back to OQS.
