What’s Happening

Want to Volunteer at Old Town?
Popcorn for Technology is a long time tradition/fundraiser at Old Town Elementary! It raises approximately $5,000.00 every school year for our Technology Department! It’s a great way to make new friends and learn about the school – plus your children will enjoy seeing you in the hallway! You can volunteer as often as you like! Thank you for supporting Old Town!!

Campus Safety
Our campus continues throughout the year to assess possible improvements in safety and campus security. In an effort to create a safer campus environment we will be implementing new building accessibility protocols.  Beginning today, the rear entrance drive of the campus (3406 side of building) will be secured from 8:00 am – 2:30 pm.  Cars will be unable to enter or exit the drive between these times.  We respectfully ask that our entire parent, student and staff community make the necessary adjustments to allow us to fully implement this additional security measure.

PTA News Boosterthon Update
The pledging will continue through the weekend!  The fun run was a HUGE success!!  Thank you to all the volunteers and cheerleaders who helped support the kids!!!  We are still working hard to reach our goal of $24,000 for field trips!   Enter all pledges at FUNRUN.COM, and your student will be rewarded the very next day. Thank you so much for supporting our school!

Early Release
Students will be dismissed at 12:00 on September 28th for Early Release.  Student lunch times will be adjusted to reflect the shortened school day.  All classes will eat lunch in their classrooms.  Students may order a sack lunch from the cafeteria on Early Release days.

OTE Campus Clean up Day
October 22 from 8:30-11:30 am.  Meet on the front patio and help clean up around the school.  Bring your garden gloves, garden tools, and rakes (label everything!).  Drop in for an hour or stay the whole time, feel free to bring your middle or high school kids that need service hours!  Contact Dana Anderson if you have any questions. danaleigh@gmail.com.

Morning Assemblies
This week, our first student recognition assembly will take place for grades PreK – second grades in the cafeteria from 7:35 am – 7:50 am.  Each teacher will nominate a student to recognize at the assembly.  Parents will be notified by the classroom teacher by Wednesday, September 28th.  Families are welcome to attend!

Counselor’s Corner (contributed by Mrs. Schaack)  
Safety lessons are a regular part of the Counseling and Guidance curriculum each year.  OTE Counselor, Ms. Schaack, will plan to review these safety lessons with all grades in her next scheduled guidance lessons.  The program used in RRISD for elementary students is Kidsmartz at http://www.kidsmartz.org.  The “Check First” video and discussion is a required guidance lesson for 2nd and 3rd grades.  Parents of students in 2nd or 3rd grade will receive a letter about this lesson when it is scheduled later this year.  Parents are encouraged to check out the Kidsmartz website to review these lessons and get parent tips on ways to teach kids how to stay safe.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child, please contact Ms. Schaack at (512) 428-7611.  Thank you.
