What's Up At The Nest...
Dear OMS Families,
We cannot believe December is upon us! We are excited for the holiday season and for all the special activities that happen during the winter months at the nest. Please remember to send your child to school with appropriate, labeled winter gear. We will continue to go outside as long as the wind chill is above zero degrees.
Erin, Julia, and the OMS staff

Science Club - Winter Session!
Science Club is back with more hands-on science adventures for students in grades two through five. We’re offering two sessions, meeting on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, January 11th through February 23rd. We meet from 3:35 until 4:45 PM in the LMC.
Session 1: Electricity and Electronics (four weeks)
We’ll build and investigate Voltaic piles, vegetable batteries, and classic wet-cells, and learn to use a multimeter. We’ll peek inside “black box” electronic devices to see what components make them work. Finally, we’ll spend an hour with “Snap Circuits” creating working devices from those components.
Session 2: Colors (three weeks)
Do different fabrics turn the same color using the same dye? Are black inks really black, and are all made of the same dyes? Which of the Rotten family committed the dastardly deed? Find out in Session 2.
Want to join in the fun? Then fill out and return this registration form as soon as possible. Due to covid protocols each session is strictly limited to 24 students, and sessions can fill up very quickly.
To ensure that we’re able to provide a safe and enjoyable activity at least two adults will be present each day. Any days that do not have at least one adult volunteer will be canceled. Please consider signing up to help on one or more days as your schedule allows.
*First-grade students may only participate if
1. an older OMS sibling(s) is enrolled in Science Club AND
2. a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle can volunteer to help every day the first
grade student attends.
