Hello! When deciding to send my daughter to OLS I remember visiting several times. I needed to get a feel for the environment and the staff. Even though it took me several visits I knew that it felt like a family for us. When you raise an only child you want them to have people around them that make up for not having siblings. With smaller class sizes I felt that the staff could get to know the students more personally and meet their needs better. As a single mom I have also met so many kind and amazing parents. I consider them friends and family. They have given me parenting support and guidance without even knowing it! I also feel well informed with e-mails etc. from Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Gerber. That communication keeps OLS stronger. When I asked my daughter her thoughts about OLS she made several positive comments. Having come from larger classrooms she especially likes only one room per grade. She loves the science and art projects. The food is amazing. Everyone helps each other. The bigger students spend time with the younger students. She feels safe at OLS. As parents we need to know the small details carried out by OLS make big impacts on our students! Being surrounded by God’s word keeps our students protected. Thank you to everyone involved in educating our OLS students. I made a great decision!
