We at Okaw Valley Elementary School strive to give our students the foundations to become respectful, honest life-long learners.  Along with our parents and community we will instruct them in making good decisions to become productive citizens for the future.



YES!      It's finally spring!


Hoops for Heart


Okaw Valley Elementary and Hoops for Heart have something going.  Two years ago we raised about $3500 but this year they blew that away.  $4764.88 was raised for the American Heart Foundation by the students from OVES.  Mrs. Weinstock's 3rd grade won an extra recess for donating the most with $757.00.  The students are learning how to help others while having a good time.  What an outstanding group of kids.
