Wildcats Newsletter July 2021

Message from the Principal

Greetings Wildcat Families,


We are so proud of our OGMS students as they are an amazing example of great strength and resilience during the school year and the summer school session. During our OGMS summer school enrichment program, our students demonstrated their continuous curiosity of learning and sharing their overall skills in academics as well as show how much they care for each other and the community. We appreciate our families, staff, and community for all their hard work and dedication for our students. We wish you all a happy summer!


We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Sincerely,


Jasmine Montgomery

Principal
