Weekly Update 

PIE PICK UP.  This Wednesday, November 20 is pie pick up day.  Pie Pick Up will be in the cafeteria from 3:30-5:30. Please do not come early as buses will be doing their afternoon pick up at that time.  It is important that you pick up your pies because they are frozen, and we cannot store all of them. We have your order sheets, so all you need to do is check in at the cafeteria.  This fundraiser was very successful, and we appreciate everyone’s hard work!

Ski Club informational meeting will be Thursday, November 21 at 7pm in the cafeteria. This is for 5-8th graders. If you are new to the ski club this will be a great time to ask questions and learn about the club. This is just informational. Registration will be online. The ski club email is ormsski@gmail.com
