Back to School Preparing for 1st Day

Please click here to access more information about Back to School for the 2022-2023 school year!

 All students should come with paper and pencils for the first day.  Teachers will let students know what items are needed for their class.




Greetings Obama Families,

The first day of school for our Eagle scholars is Monday, August 8th.  Please note that supply lists for grade levels and specialists (art, music, technology, health/PE, Science lab, etc...) have been posted on our school website for your review. Teachers have worked as a team to create the supply lists for each grade level so that you will not go out and purchase unnecessary items. During this economic recession, we all need to be good stewards of our finances.  ALL registrations and withdrawals will take place online.   You should not come to the building to register students, however parents who need assistance tomorrow during Open House may work with our parent liaison (Mrs. Pearlene Smith), registrar and administrative assistants to upload documents and sign up for Parent Portal.  All registration documents must be uploaded electronically. 

Our school uniforms consist of red, white or blue tops, and khaki, charcoal gray, navy blue or blue jean bottoms.  Students may also wear spirit shirts and paraphernalia with their uniforms on any day of the week.  Though it is not required, if you purchase polo shirts, you may get them embroidered with our Obama Elementary logo/crest for a small fee at Jean and Son's Embroidery right off Gresham Rd. For those who don't have spirit shirts, they may be purchased/ordered at the PTO table during Open House tomorrow.  PTO memberships are still just $10 per person.  Please join our PTO to support our school!   

This is a reminder that Open House for Obama Elementary will be held tomorrow, (Wednesday, August 3, 2022) from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. You may come any time during these hours. During this time, you will be able to enter the building, meet administrators, teachers and other staff, pick up a few free school supplies (until we run out) and receive pertinent information about this school year (uniforms, after-school care, transportation routes, daily schedules, extracurricular activities, etc...)  Faculty and staff will greet and direct you upon entering the building.  

We strongly encourage mask-wearing during Open House to mitigate the spread of COVID.  As you know, positive COVID cases are increasing again and we want to ensure that everyone remains safe and healthy. Parents who are unable to physically attend will be able to retrieve this information from our school website and Parent Portal by the close of business tomorrow.. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful and productive school year!  Let's continue to work as a team to meet the needs of our scholars.  We are better TOGETHER!  

Sincerely,

Angela Thomas-Bethea, Principal
