Okte 4th graders made bully prevention posters as part of their unit on bully prevention. Featured is Mrs. Butera’s class holding up their signs.
The children at Okte are really enjoying the warmth and sunshine during recess! It is only a matter of time before the snow and cold will be coming!
Every month, Okte’s Morning Program has music day, where Mr. C has the children perform. For the month of October, the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria came sailing through with the 2nd graders, and the 1st and 3rd graders performed dances and songs. Always an enjoyable day at Morning Program!
Mrs. Troy & Mrs. Walton's classes are learning about rules and laws and who makes them. Mrs. Mickle visited the classes so the children could learn how the school principal is different from the President.
Fire Prevention at Okte.
Okte held its annual Halloween parade throughout the halls
of the school for all to enjoy! Third Grade at Okte has a tradition for Halloween. Every year, they perform the 12 Days of Halloween at Morning Program with props and sing a song that starts off with "A screech owl in a dead tree!"
Okte’s first graders used the Interactive Whiteboard to turn an image of a spider web into one inspired by Kente Cloth, the author of the book Anansi the Spider!
Students in Mrs. Joyal’s classroom at Okte learn how to paint while swinging on their bellies!
Okte has a new "Buddy Bench" out on the playground. The bench is for those students who are in need of a buddy to play with. If a child is sitting on the bench, other children can go over and ask them to join in whatever activity they may be doing.
Okte welcomes students back for another wonderful year!
