The Great OES Book Swap (Otherwise known as GOBS)

The opening day of GOBS saw countless books find new hands to hold them and fresh eyes to read them.  Thanks to our parent volunteers, FOESL, and all the families who donated books, ALL students were able to select 10 books to call their own and to enjoy for the summer.  Stop by tomorrow morning to take as many books as you like!
