All About Me

Hello!  My name is Jennifer Olson.  I have a BA in Elementary Education with a Minor in Early Childhood Education from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls.  I taught at Small Wonders Preschool in Lakeville for 8 years before becoming a mom.  Once my oldest son was born, I was a stay at home mom.  Before taking the Kindergarten teaching position last year, I was busy volunteering here at All Saints School and substitute teaching K-8 as well.

My husband, Rich and I, have been married for 23 years (soon to be 24).  We live in Farmington with our three boys.  Griffin is 15 and is a sophomore at Academy of Holy Angels.  Logan is 13 (8th grader) and Colby is 8 (3rd grader) here at All Saints. 

I enjoy spending time with my family, scrap booking, photography, watching my boys play baseball, gardening, cooking, and reading. When I was in Kindergarten I wanted to grow up to be a Kindergarten teacher!

Room Parents

Hello Families!
It was fun seeing so many of you at the All Saints Festival today! What a beautiful day!
 
I am sending out a request to see who is interested in being a room parent. I have had a few parents possibly interested but only a confirmation from one parent. Ideally it would be great to have 3-4 parents.
 
The room parent meeting is Tuesday, September 26, 6:30 p.m. in Mrs. Johnson's room. There will be information for all room parents, school wide, as well ask many people to answer your questions.
 
You do need to have the E3 requirements met to be a room parent.
Please respond to this email to confirm if you would like to be a room parent. Even if you have shown an interest verbally to me, please reply so I have all the names in one place.
 
Thanks for considering this opportunity to help in your child's classroom.
