OMS Family Newsletter

1/4/2021 - 1/8/2021

Happy New Year!

We hope that you all enjoyed your winter break and were able to relax and enjoy your families and friends. We are excited to be back, ready to help your scholars learn and grow in 2021.


For the remaining part of this trimester, our advisory curriculum will be focused on Community Connections. Many of our students provided feedback to us that they miss being able to see their friends that they do not have classes with, so we decided to take that feedback and come up with an action plan. We have created partner advisory classes and will begin our focus on building community among the partner advisories.


Our next focus will be on our local community. Our students will be learning about different local community organizations and listening to speakers from some of these organizations. Students will then have the opportunity to participate in a service learning project, with an organization that they have learned about and will have the opportunity to contribute to our local community.


Do you have any ideas for organizations that we could work with in our local community? Do you know a speaker that could come in and talk about their organization and service learning opportunities? Contact Laura Ringen ringenl@district279.org or 763-391-8556 .


We are also excited that we have started our Family Sessions! Please see below for more information about upcoming topics.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Staff Outstanding Oriole

Sarah Koch is a true team player. She makes everyone around her better here in our OMS family! She always goes out of her way to help both students and faculty. Education at OMS is truly a team endeavor and there is no “I” in team or in Ms. Koch. Attitudes are contagious and hers is worth catching! She is willing to do anything possible to support students, families, and staff members in our learning community. Sarah is always positive and helpful to everyone around her. She is continually looking for and participating in professional learning opportunities, to help her be the best educator she can be! Sarah is a member of our equity team, participates in our Check and Connect program, and helps our school out in so many ways. We are so proud of her and lucky to have her at OMS!
