O’Flanagan Friday Twas the Friday ‘fore Christmas And all through the school The students were pajama’d For this season so cool   The story of Kwanza Was read next to the tree In Mr. S’s best voice The pronunciation quite free   The candles of Hanukkah On the menorah were tight For some of us celebrate The Festival of Lights   Mr. Vizi had read us A great story to impress Of the train and magic ‘Twas the Polar Express   The two weeks upcoming Holding rest, family, and peace We’ll celebrate them all And love not the least   Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah And plenty of cheer From Orchard Friends School A very Happy New...

O’Flanagan Friday  Monday Orchard Friends School had $440 donated through the United Way When Mrs. Tesler’s husband David called OFS. He asked what our United Way number was since the Campbell Soup Company’s United Way campaign had just begun. He sent an internal email to his colleges saying that the Teslers had supported OFS through the campaign for the last five years and that they should give it some consideration. To make a long story short Campbell Soup employees have pledged over $5200 to OFS and our total exceeds $5700. We encourage others to show David’s creativity and initiative when they encounter problems that need to be solved. Thanks David, Bill...

O’Flanagan Friday 12/5

Mr. P has asked me to jot a thought or two on an ongoing basis. This is a great week for OFS as we shared a dynamite video produced by Rebecca and Jason Ferris on  Giving Twosday… That’s right I spelled it 2’sday on purpose because all donations were matched. We raised $2500 and counting but more importantly we spread the word about OFS. You are invited to help on that score. Can you ask one person to check out the video at http://orchardfriends.org/givingtuesday/ ? If you do i will do 10 push ups at our morning movement period. Of course you would have to let us know you did  so.  I hope to have sore arms but better cardiovascular function based on your efforts!...
