Today is Monday, October 18th.

 

Stand for the pledge of allegiance Vikings (wait 3 seconds)

 

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. (wait 3 seconds)

 

We pause to acknowledge that Odle Middle School resides on the traditional and occupied land of the Coast Salish Peoples – past, present, and future. We honor their connection to the region, pay respect to Coast Salish Elders past and present, and stand in solidarity through their struggles.   

 

Guess what? Unity Day is this Wednesday! Please wear orange on Unity Day to show unity against bullying. Don’t forget to turn in your OARRS into the Unity Day box! We are giving away 80 orange bracelets that say “Kind Human…Human Kind.” We wear orange on Unity Day in October because orange is a color commonly identified with fall and this month. It’s also associated with safety and warmth, therefore gives off a feeling of unity. We can’t wait to see your orange this Wednesday!

 

Students – so far this year you have earned a total of 3,812 OARRS! That is incredible! Thanks for putting your first AND last name on your OARRS and writing your name legibly. It helps leadership so much! The current prize options are: a Unity Day bracelet, an Odle mask, choosing a song for passing period, and five minutes early to lunch! Keep being respectful, responsible, and safe.

Today’s lunch is fish sandwich with baked fries.

 

Have a great day everyone!

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
