Oct 31: Charity Dress Up Day as students, teachers, and staff are invited to participate in dressing up as their favorite Super Hero for a $1.00 donation to the OMES Charity Program (Crusade for Children, Relay for Life, YMCA Child Care Program). No masks or face makeup. Wear school appropriate shoes. Ms. Bleemel, counselor, will send home specifics on Oct 28.
Oct 31: Classes will have Fall/Halloween parties in the afternoon. Teachers will communicate expectations via newsletter and teacher/team web page. If teachers choose to allow food, please honor all food requirements as we do have classes that must honor school and district policies on food allergies. Any food or drink must be store bought and be in the original wrapping/container. No homemade goodies allowed. We want all of our students and staff to be safe.
More News and Information
Old Mill has been having its Fall Conferences over the past few days with our scheduled evening conferences on Oct 23. We have implemented a new program called “The Leader in Me” which has a goal to guide students into being better leaders and more accountable for their own learning. One expectation is to have students develop their own Student Data Notebook by collecting various data to provide evidence of learning as measured on various assessments, work samples/products, etc. A second expectation is to have students report their progress to parents and teachers using evidence collected in their Student Data Notebooks. We would like to have feedback from parents/guardians as to their perspective of this new journey in helping students reach their fullest potential in learning and leadership. Please click on the Survey Monkey link below to answer 6 questions by November 1, 2014. We value your input and will use this data as we continue to improve our instructional program at OMES. Thank you.
