Olin Elementary is hoping to see a lot of BUGS this year! Staff at the school has developed a positive reinforcement program that operates on the premise of catching kids Being Unusually Good Students (BUGS) and rewarding them with a paper bug. A BUG can be earned at any time, and recipients will be recognized during a school assembly.
We hope to create an environment where students, parents and faculty/ staff practice the 3 B’s:
Be SAFE – Be RESPECTFUL - Be RESPONSIBLE.
Students are taught and reminded to make choices based on:
the SAFETY of all students and adults
treating all students and adults with RESPECT
The faculty and staff have developed what SAFE, RESPECTFUL, and RESPONSIBLE behaviors look like in five areas of the school and when riding the bus.

Olin Elementary School participates in the Elementary School Pull-Tab Contest. Collecting the pull-tabs is an easy and fun way to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City ships the pull-tabs collected to a recycling center for processing. They receive money from the recycling center based on how many pounds of pull-tabs get delivered. Annually the pull-tab collection program generates over $14,000 to support services for the families and children that the Ronald McDonald House Charities serves. Every pull-tab saved helps!
During the 2014-2015 school year, we collected 4625 pounds of pull-tabs. We increased our collections during the 2015-2016 school year to 5389 pounds!
We are beyond proud of all the students' hard work and will continue to collect pull-tabs.
Here is our 2016-2017 progress so far. In September, we delivered 55 pounds of pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. Let's keep collecting!
