Inspired by Oliveira Elementary School staff who, in honor of OliveiraÕs 50th Anniversary, composed a song, ÒS.O.A.R.Ó which stands for Safety, Ownership, Attitude and Respect, FUSS invites FUSD students and staff to compose a song promoting awareness and appreciation among the 42 schools in our district.
