The Odessa Public School staff is thrilled to be back! We can’t wait to see you on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 4 at 8:05. We hope you had a lovely summer filled with family, friends and good times! The heat has been a big topic of conversation around Ontario this summer so we hope you had a chance to cool off in a lake or a pool. Let’s hope the first day is sunny and dry!

This year will be a new start for Odessa Public School because we are welcoming our friends from Yarker Family School! Last year, the students had several visits at Odessa and we had the pleasure of introducing them to the staff and students. We hope they are excited about their new adventure!

As you might have noticed, our school has been under construction this summer. Here is a summary of some of the things that we have been working on…

Our new gym floor looks amazing and is ready for use. It will ensure our students have a safe surface for gym classes and extra curricular activities. You will notice another big change when you walk in the front doors of the school. Our new, improved front foyer will amaze you with its’ new accessible ramp and open concept. New flooring has been installed in the library, and we will create a new space for inquiry and discovery as the year progresses. 

The staff will be outside on the first day of school to greet students. There will be lots of support as students get off their bus and staff will direct them to the correct yard and the correct teacher. Don’t forget your indoor shoes and a water bottle!

We can't wait to see you, Tigers! 

Please remember to keep an eye out for new faces - let's give them a kind and supportive Tiger welcome!
