A New Story in the OP Storywalk!

6/5/2023 8:26 am

Come enjoy Cartolessia and the Magical Garden, a story written and illustrated by OP's kindergarten, first, and second grade classes. This is a result of a creative writing activity students worked on in the garden with Mrs. Bullock. We are so proud of your students' collaborative efforts in creating this. They had tons of great ideas, and their pictures bring the story to life. This story will be installed in OP's StoryWalk. The StoryWalk has fifteen numbered stations. It starts at the flagpole, heads toward the media center and wraps the whole way around the building with the fifteenth station in front of the technology trailer in the back of the building.

Make sure you check it out!

Dear Parents,
it is with mixed emotions that I write to inform you that I will be leaving Olde Providence Elementary and retiring this year. As many of you know, my wife Marie has been dealing with very serious health issues. She has been in the hospital since December 7th and is now back in the ICU. This has been hard for my family and me. I have been blessed to be a part of the OP community. In the past 10 years, you have given me the opportunity to teach, get to know your kids, and embrace them as if they were my own. I will miss each one of them, especially our conversations, their laughter, and their growth. June 12th will be my official last working day at OP. I cherish my time spent at OP and will miss you all.

Mr. Soler
