This week at OMS...
We are taking donations for Toys for Tots all this week(Dec. 9-Dec. 16). For each unwrapped/unused toy or book that a student brings in, they will earn a raffle ticket. All the tickets will be placed into a raffle and the winning ticket holder will earn a pizza party with 4 of their friends on Tuesday, December 17. Please help us support this worthy cause!!!
Our Oscar Winning Performer of the Week is:
Haley D.-8th Grader:
Haley always comes into class with a smile and a great attitude. She says "hello", never complains, and always has her homework done. She utilizes her time wisely and asks if there is anything she could help do for others. Haley is also very kind and a good student.
