Dear OISD Staff Members,
I hope you had a restful summer vacation and your batteries are recharged for another exciting school year! As we begin the year, I want to express my gratitude to each of you for your contribution to this school district. Because of you, our school district is a safe, supportive and challenging place for children to learn and become responsible citizens.
The possibilities are endless. Walking among us could be a brilliant mathematician, a renowned artist, a great political leader and the student who is the first person in the family to graduate high school and go on to college. Years from now, whom might we look back on and say, “I remember that kid?” Thank you for helping these students realize their dreams.
On Wednesday, August 21st, we will enjoy our annual Welcome Breakfast sponsored by the Olney Chamber of Commerce. The breakfast will begin at 8:00 am in the Main Room located at 202 E. Main. After the breakfast we will tend to some district business and then you will hear some mildly interesting words from me. At 1:00 p.m. you will return to the Main Room for an inspiring program called, “Why Try: Surrendering the One-up Relationship.”
A special welcome goes out to our new teachers! On Monday, August 19th, a special orientation will be held for you in the Library Meeting Room beginning at 1:00 p.m. and running until about 4:00 p.m. At this time campus and district personnel will go through some important information that will make your transition to Olney ISD smooth and make you feel like one of the gang.
Thank you again for everything you do to make Olney ISD a special place to work and learn.
