This year’s major social justice initiatives:

This year, we are honored to have been selected to join the APPLE Schools group as an APPLE ally school. Our students benefit from learning and leadership in physical activity, healthy eating, and positive mental health.

Every morning a new student in each class is chosen to be the PATHS kid of the day! This person gets compliments from their peers and gives themselves a compliment too. During the week, students are recognized for their accomplishments in many areas.  OLOP is proud to be recognized as an International PATHS Model School.


The staff and students recognized the many people in our school community who support us in so many ways!  Thank you to our administrative assistants and our custodians.

Thank you to our parents and volunteers, and to our bus drivers who get our students to school and back safely every day.

For the first time ever, in 2021, this date was commemorated as a federal holiday: National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.
Our staff and students were excited to welcome our virtual guests for Read-In Week in October 2021!  We look forward to returning to an in-person event next year.
