The lights, cookies and hot cocoa are almost ready to go! Join us tonight, Friday, December 16th and tomorrow, Saturday, December 17th from 4:30-7:30pm for our Bright Nights event.

We want to share a huge thank you with the community members, staff, and students who made our past two events great! Our Online Auction raised over $5,000 for our OTES PTC. This event was chaired by our own kindergarten teacher and RSU #34 parent, April Smith. Our Holiday Bazaar was a busy and cheerful event that also brought in funds for the OTES PTC as well as many local vendors and groups. This event was co-chaired by our own art teacher and RSU #34 parent, Tiffany Palmer and OTES parent, Lisa Carter. These events could not happen without our entire volunteer crew and our supportive community. Thank you!
It was a beautiful, but chilly final fall walk to school today. Mr. Cyr and his daughter joined us and we cheered on the UMaine ROTC cadets during their 8 mile, heavy pack carrying journey. We love winter, but are already looking forward to Spring walks to school. Thanks to all who joined us this fall!
Our Holiday Bazaar is tomorrow, Saturday, December 3rd from 9am-2pm. This is a great event for the whole family. Come shop local, visit the children's craft area and have a snack, lunch or a warm drink at the concessions stand!
