Weekly Family Update, 

Happy Thanksgiving!  Staff reflected this week on gratitude – a frequent point of gratitude was our amazing O’Dea families and students.  We deeply appreciate our community and we feel lucky to call O'Dea home.  I hope everyone enjoys your time with friends and family!  

We are starting our fourth annual O’Dea Giving Tree! Our Giving Tree event provides support and resources to families in need within our school community. Our goal is to provide families with gifts for each child and a grocery card to purchase food items over our holiday break. Your donation will help bring joy to these families during this season. See attached flyer for how you can help! 2023 Giving Tree Flyer.docx (PDF Version 2023 Giving Tree Flyer.pdf)

Have a wonderful break!
