  • ZOOM FOR THE CLASSROOM: We are proud to announce that Zoom For The Classroom raised $13,255 for Overlook!  We’re so thankful for all our parents and students who supported our school with donations. All the money raised will enrich and impact your child’s experience at Overlook with such events as One School, One Book, the Briar Bush Acorn Program and many other PTO events! Plus a third goes directly to teacher/school grants. Mr. Perlman and Ms. Daniels were so proud of the students’ efforts that they honored their promise to get covered with silly string.   Check out this brief link to the video.  Thank you for participating and helping to make Zoom a fun and successful fundraiser for our school!
