General new student information

Parent Ambassadors:


All new families will be assigned a Parent Ambassador. The role of the PA is to help facilitate a smooth transition to Overbrook. They will be available to answer questions, will occasionally send information on events, and will look to include your child in summer activities. Playdates are often scheduled and you will be notified of those dates. You will received a call from your Parent Ambassador welcoming you. We did our best to match parents based on either grade of current children at Overbrook, past school attended, or other commonalty.

Incoming prekindergarten:

Call the front for a copy of the information handed out at the May prekindergarten meeting.

Incoming kindergarten:

Additional information will be provided at the kindergarten parent information night Wednesday Aug. 9, 2017, at 6 p.m.

Incoming first through eighth-grade:

Overbrook’s summer reading lists and math assignments are posted online. The librarian has also sent the list to Parnassus Books as an in-town option for purchasing books.

Incoming junior high (6-8):

Junior high language and band/choir elective information, click here. For your elective selection form please download the form linked above. Mail directly to the front office to Jenna Lambert or email back to osreceptionist@overbrook.edu .

Eighth-grade:

All eighth-grade students are required to perform service hours, and many choose to complete these hours over the summer. The service project should be at least 10 hours of service, to a specific person or group of people, with no reward or payment of any type in return. Students will be asked to reflect on the service, and see in it how they have grown in response to God’s call to love and serve the least of His people. A log of the hours served and a paper will be due in the fourth quarter of school. These service hours also count toward Confirmation for those students receiving the Sacrament.
Attached please find the Service Program guide, Intent to Serve Form and Service Hours Log.
If your child plans on completing some or all of their service hours over the summer and has any questions as to whether a particular form of service will count towards the required hours, please email Sister Immaculata at srimmaculata@overbrook.edu.


Bus information:

Overbrook partners with Montgomery Bell Academy to offer morning bus service. Click here for more information.

Summer AR

Summer AR will take place on the following days and times this summer as listed below. AR will be located in the library office/workroom and will only have four (4) computer stations available during these times. These limitations are necessary in order to accommodate the library renovations, the re-location of the art room, the loss of the computer lab and the various cleaning and maintenance schedules throughout the summer. As a result, please be patient and expect to be here a bit longer than usual, given the limited computer availability. Also, be mindful of the AR protocols about students completing their testing independently and direct them to the assigned monitors should they have any questions.

Location: LIBRARY OFFICE/WORKROOM

Days/Times:

  • Wednesday, June 7 – 9-11 a.m.
  • Wednesday, June 14 – 9-11 a.m
