This year we will conduct our Candygram fundraiser. (Details will follow with instructions.) Parents are invited to send their children a Valentine Candy Gram Message. The cost to send the gram is $3.00. We also encourage children to send a candygram message to their friends.  In addition, teachers will read aloud Valentine’s cards from parents during class. Each child should wear colors of love.

Dear Parents,

We will be celebrating the 100th Day of School on Monday, February 13th, 2023.  We would love to have the kids dress up like they are 100 years old. We have included some ideas to help you plan what your child will wear. Remember, Pinterest is a great resource!

• Girls: Printed skirt, pearls, eyeglasses, sweater, wig or curled hairstyle, gray hair spray, knee-high stockings, large purse, scarf 

• Boys: Button-down shirt, flannel shirt, suspenders, tie, eyeglasses, drawn-on mustache or beard, gray hair spray.   

On February 7, OKP is celebrating President’s Day.

Students are encouraged to come to school dressed in presidential attire as they learn about the responsibilities of being a president. Keep a lookout for our unique creation of the Oval Office.

February 6th is Our Kids Place’s Birthday. The school turns 32.

Students are encouraged to wear party attire for a birthday party for OKP.
