Walkabout Program at Odle
In an effort to increase security at Odle, Parent volunteers are invited to join a "walk-about" program. This program simply asks for parents to walk-about campus, be extra eyes and ears, and help us increase overall safety and security by having an increased adult presence on campus.
Come create a safe and positive presence walking about campus before or after school or during lunch. Be sure to smile and say hello to the students, even if it looks like they don't want you to. It makes a difference and has resulted in creating a safer, friendlier place to learn!! Sign in at the office and put on an orange vest. Anyquestions or feedback can be sent to Eric, Renee or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eric will lead a training for all interested parents and volunteers on January 8th at 8 AM. Mark your calendars.
