Orrenmaa Elementary School
Welcome Back Owls! We are excited to kick off an amazing second half of the school year!
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our canned food drive. We were able to give complete Holiday Meals to 8 of our families in need. That is more meals than we have ever been able to give!! We split the remainder of the food items between our Orrenmaa School Pantry (which feeds students in need on a weekly basis) and to Feeding America in Riverside. We donated over 200 pounds of canned goods to the organization. THANK YOU OWLS!!!!
Our 1st Annual Tamale/Salsa Tasting Contest was AMAZING!! We had delicious tamales and salsa's entered and it was a tough decision. Families came and enjoyed tasting all of the samples and made their choices. The winners were *drum roll please* Mrs. Sutara Majid for Salsa and Mrs. Gertrudis Bermudez for her Tamales!! Congratulations Ladies!! Thank you to everyone who entered and attended our event. We hope to make this an annual event here at Orrenmaa
January is Kindess Month. We are sprinkling kindness around like confettii here at Orrenmma! Students are performing Random Acts of Kindness everyday and putting what they did on a kindness note. Those notes go into the kindness box, & Ms. Taylor selects notes during morning announcements to give a "shout out" to a few students daily. Ask your Owl which random acts of kindness they are doing here at school.
** Spelling Bee- Our 5th grade students will be competing in the Spelling Bee here at Orrenmaa on Wednesday January 22, 2020 at 2pm. The Winner will then compete at the District Level!!
** Multi-Cultural Festival- Our 4th Annual Mutil-Cultural Festival will be held on February 5, 2020 at 6pm. Do you have a favorite dish from your culture that you would love to share with our community? Then we need you! The Cultural Festival is a wonderful night of music, games, food and entertainment from cultures from around the world. We encourage families bring their favorite dish to share at the event, please sign up in the office!
