8/18 Parent Owl Update

O’Dea Owl Families,

We had a fantastic two days of school!  It was truly special to watch the community come together, welcome our kids, and see our staff in action!!!  I feel blessed to be part of the O’Dea Community!  Special thanks to our amazing PTA for providing popsicles for our Backpack Drop Off on Wednesday night.  Here are some important announcements for our week ahead!

Important Announcements
