Making a Difference

Eighth grade literature classes discussed how we can positively impact our community similar to the main characters of our class book and movie. We would like to invite all students to donate either gloves, mittens, socks, or hats to our Christmas tree in the 8th grade hallway. We will be partnering with the OMS Leadership team and these donations will be given to those in need within our own community. This is one way that we can IMPACT the world we live in. Let's fill up that tree with donations!!!!!  

2019 OMS Swim Team

Good luck to our swim team members as they prepare to host a quad meet this Saturday, November 23rd, at 11:00 a.m. with teams from Mansfield Christian, Madison, and Mansfield St. Peter's. Swim fast and post PR's!

Thankful Feathers

Eighth graders recently finished the book A Long Walk to Water in their literature class and watched the movie, The Good Lie. They also viewed interviews with cast members who were once child refugees who came to the USA for a better life. These actors and actresses spoke of how grateful and thankful they were for all that was done for them in this country. 
In making connections to these interviews for the book, A Long Walk to Water, students designed holiday feathers with their own thoughts for the hallway bulletin board turkeys. Their feathers stated what they were thankful for. Not only were their feathers colorful, their thoughts were gratifying. 

Interpreting the Text in a Variety of Ways

As a culminating project for “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” unit, students in seventh grade literature were provided nine different topics and asked to select one to feature their Sleepy Hollow creativity. From mobiles, game boards, pop-up pages, to dioramas, costumes and slide presentations, students did a great job interpreting the important devices found in the text and showcasing those elements with their creations.

Creating World Landmarks

Students in 6th grade social studies have a chance to earn a STEM day twice a month if they turn in all assignments and exhibit great citizenship skills according to the Warrior Way. This month, groups of students were given a variety of supplies and asked to build a model of a well-known world landmark. Here are some examples of things like Big Ben, The Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the Roman Colosseum, the Golden Gate Bridge and more! See how many you can recgnize.

Thank you Veterans!

The 2019 OHS/OMS Veterans Day Program was one to remember as bands and choirs combined grades 7 thru 12 to honor in music and song the numerous military men and women in attendance. Guest speaker, Retired Colonel Michael Howard did an impressive job in recognizing the importance and solemnity of this special day. It was a wonderful way to thank all our military men and women who have served and continue to serve our community, our state, and our great nation.
