Inaugural “Walk of the Wolves”


On Monday, June 12th, the graduating Seniors of the OESJ Class of 2017 took a trip up to the Elementary School to walk the hallways for a final farewell. All of the students and teachers in the Elementary School lined the hallways to applaud the Seniors efforts and they even provided them with many “Thank You” Gifts and congratulatory send offs. The event was the first of its kind at OESJ and provided many of the Seniors a nostalgic send off with their former teachers. The younger students also got the opportunity to see how special this moment was and provided them with some motivation to strive to attain this opportunity for themselves.
