Due to unforeseen circumstances the Registration Packets will be sent home on Thursday of this week not Tuesday as previously mentioned in last week’s newsletter. We apologize for the inconvenience, but thank you for your patience and understanding with this unexpected change.
If you have not completed your registration form, please do so as soon as possible to support plans for the upcoming school year. If you have made the decision not to return we would ask that you complete the form with that information and return it to the office. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
FIRST TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE MEETING
Our first meeting held on Tuesday, April 29, began with foundational information so all participants had the same knowledge of OMMS’ infrastructure including an overview on the current state of technology.
Each member brings a different level of expertise to the committee including a select group of teachers, ones that will provide essential information from the classroom perspective and Computer Science Labs. All elements will be considered in order to begin developing short term goals and long term plans. The first short term goal is to finish projects launched this past fall, one being the addition of Smart Board Technology in classrooms which unfortunately was not completed due to financial limitations.
As the meeting progressed the energy and enthusiasm built, inclusive of plans for transforming the technology we now utilize and discussion of various strategies to achieve the results necessary for our school and the students. The meeting ended on a very motivated platform with assigned tasks to complete prior to the next meeting scheduled later this month. WE will keep you posted on the developments, but all left with a sense of anticipation for the work ahead and the results of that endeavor!
OMMS 6th Grade Returns
We have heard many snippets of the exciting times that all of our 6th graders enjoyed while away this past week and look forward to viewing the pictures of these shared camp experiences! Their classmates, teachers and PARENTS were happy to see them return; on Friday all promptly departed for home to enjoy a long, hot shower and at the end of the day their own comfortable bed! This week, all are back at school wondering where the time went, trying to alter their thinking and focus on the school work ahead.
