General new student information
All new families have been 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 be sending more detailed information on events, and will look to include your child in summer activities. If you have not already received a call from your Parent Ambassador you should be receiving one shortly. We did our best to match parents based on either grade of current children at Overbrook, past school attended, or other commonalty.

Additional information will be provided at the kindergarten parent information night Aug. 10, 2016, at 6 p.m.
Incoming first through eighth-grade:
Overbrook’s summer reading lists 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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
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 Joanna Marie at email@example.com .
Overbrook partners with Montgomery Bell Academy to offer morning bus service. Click here for more information.
