Student Voices Needed – Recess Items

Hello O’Hara families! We hope your summer is going well!!!  While it’s hard to think about indoor recess days when the sun is shining and our kiddos are living outdoors, the PTO is getting ready for rainy days ahead.  Please ask your students what they would like to see in the indoor recess bins. What were their favorite items last year??

While you’re at it – ask what we need more of for OUTDOOR recess (where we hope to be a much as possible throughout the year)!  We’re gearing up for a great year ahead. Comment below, please!
