Welcome to Our House 2018

Greek House Christmas Donations
Greek House Christmas Donations

As we begin the new school year, please let me take this time to welcome each and every one of our students back to OMS. We are looking forward to a great year. We feel like there will be lots of opportunities this year to enhance the lives of our students as well as our community. 

First, Bobcat 45. Each student will spend 45 minutes, 4 days a week working on improving academically. Teachers will use a screener that will pinpoint each student’s strength and weaknesses. They will then develop lessons and use computer software to help fill gaps in learning or accelerate their learning. We at OMS are excited to see what this focus on student learning will lead to in the future for our students!!!

Second, Greek House. We firmly believe at OMS that students in the middle school years want to belong to something. That something can be positive or negative. By providing an opportunity for our students to belong to a group that focuses on positive interactions, mentoring, service projects, and positive character traits, we know that our students have a far greater chance of growing up to be productive citizens!!!

Third, STEM projects and learning. We will be receiving training on STEM education. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This training will be helpful to our students as we educate them to be learners and workers in the upcoming years. Keep a check on our web page. We plan to show you some of our projects!!!
