Class Gift

Each year the sixth graders present Ogden Avenue School with a class gift using money that they have raised throughout the year (from the Krispy Kreme sales, Red Sled calendar sales and DiNico’s fundraiser, etc.). 

This year we will be installing a free library outside the main entrance of the school.  The children will have a chance to help personalize this library in the spring and donate books to help stock it as well. If you would still like to donate a book, there is a collection box in Miss Shamet’s room.

This piece is not to be confused with the Legacy Project.

Contact the Sixth Grade Committee with questions.

6th Grade Celebration

We will be asking for breakfast donations closer to this date. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join us, take pictures and talk about how these kids were just in kindergarten!
