Dear OLV families,
We hope that you had a fantastic summer. As we near the beginning of our upcoming 2019-2020 school year, I am excited for the opportunities for learning, growth, and leadership that await all our scholars.
At Olympic View we have great teachers who have spent much of August preparing classrooms that are welcoming and highly engaging for all scholars. Our teachers use research based best practices and analyze academic data to ensure all scholars are successful. Teachers meet weekly to collaborate, share experiences and expertise during Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). We dedicate ourselves in this work with one goal in mind: increasing student success.
We have high expectations for all scholars. OLV is in its third year of Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (PBIS). Our expectations for scholars are: BE RESPONSIBLE, BE SAFE, AND BE RESPECTFUL. We recognize scholars who model these expectations daily and monthly with cougar paw drawings, monthly Capable Cougar assemblies, and class and school incentives.
Breakfast starts at 8:45 and school begins promptly at 9:10. We start the day in the gym with morning announcements. If your scholar is late please escort them to the office to check in as they will be marked tardy and need a pass. Safety is a priority in the Federal Way School District. If you are visiting OLV please stop by the office and get a visitor pass.
When dropping off or picking up scholars please pull up past the cones (near the music portable). For safety reasons, please do not pass on the left side of cars waiting.
We value family partnerships and have many opportunities to volunteer at Olympic View. Please come by the office and fill out a volunteer form/background check if you are interested in volunteering. OLV’s PTA is another way to get involved always looking for new members.
Please join us on August 29th from 4:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M. for our Back to School BBQ. This is an opportunity for scholars to meet their teachers, visit their classroom, and drop off supplies. School supply lists and uniform guidelines are found online.
Reminder school starts on September 3rd for our 1st -5th graders and September 6th for kindergartners.
Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year of successful learning and growth!
