Our annual OWL overnight will be from 4:00 pm on Saturday, February 3 through 11:00 am on Sunday, February 4 in the office suite and Room 116 at OBIC.
To make the overnight a successful, fun, amazing experience for all, we need a few things from our parents:
(1) Please read the permission slip (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KWFd6a6USRwadqQDRD_63Y7GN5Sdr0n5Mfm5w5alLk4/edit?usp=sharing) WITH your student! You and your student need to read and sign the permission slip and bring it with you to the overnight! (If you have problems printing it out, we will have printed copies available this Sunday for you to take home, read, sign, and return.)
(2) Volunteers! Parent volunteers make the overnight happen. The volunteer tasks are overnight chaperone, supplier of Friday evening snack, and supplier of Saturday morning breakfast. The Signup Genius signup for these task is here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0544afac2aabfe3-owlovernight
Please note that there are slots for four overnight chaperones. We can do this with as few as two, but if there are four it lightens the load for each volunteer! (You do NOT need to break it into shifts if you don’t want to – you are welcome to simply sign up to stay the entire night.)
Please remember that the OWL overnight is part of the curriculum, and is a wonderful bonding experience for the class as well. If your child is unable to stay overnight or attend the entire thing, please contact Robin – we still encourage participation even if only for part of the event.
Here are the basic ground rules for the OWL overnight so everyone has a fun, learning-filled experience!
* Cost for the overnight is $10 per student to cover food, supplies, etc., but we will never keep a child from being a part of this learning experience if cost is a potential problem. Please contact me if you have concerns!
* We will have pizza on Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday morning.
* Please plan to arrive ON TIME! This is part of the curriculum and we actually have a lot of information to fit in!
* Overnight supplies your student will need: sleeping bag/bedding, pajamas, any medications, comfy shoes/clothes for the next day since everyone will wake up to MORE learning!
* The class part ends at 8:00 pm on Saturday night, and there will be a few hours of free time before lights out. Feel free to bring games, music, etc. to share. Movies must be PG-13 or under.
* QUIET HOURS will be observed beginning at midnight. Please respect our adult chaperones and any other students who might want to sleep. If you feel you must stay up past 12 am, you MUST be quiet! (Remember class starts again the next morning bright and early!!)
* Overnight parent chaperones will have emergency contact information for UUCC staff and for all parents.
Please feel free to contact Robin if you have any questions or concerns.
