Dear Parents and Guardians,


It’s nothing new when Orlando Science strives for excellence we exceed all expectations!

Our students, staff and Orca family work hard to achieve the goals we set for ourselves and we do it by working together! We are excited to share with you many exciting accomplishments from this past week and events to come!


Our Senior Class of 2018 is setting the bar high for College Acceptances! This past week Christina T was accepted to Rice University, Stanford University and Duke University. She was also recently accepted to MIT. This is our second OSS Senior to be accepted to MIT! We also had another senior, Abhinav D recently get accepted to Georgia Tech and UC Berkeley University! Congratulations to all of our Seniors and their hard work this year. We are so proud of you!


As our Senior Class begins to wrap up their High School Journeys, our Junior Class is working hard to follow right in their place! We had not just one Junior qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program, we had THREE! These students qualified for this prestigious accomplishment based on their 2017 PSAT/NMSQT Scores! Congratulations to Russell A., Kevin R., Gideon F., their parents and teachers. We are so proud of you!


This past Saturday April 7th 2018 OSS held the BACE Exam for our biomedical students.

Our students have been working hard over the last three years in order to take this exam and students who pass the BACE exam will be certified Biotech Assistants. For more information on the BACE Exam, please see the article below.


Our Orcas not only work hard to achieve academic success but they also work hard to help each other succeed! In this newsletter you will find our March Students of the Month and our very first recipients of the "ORCA Character Award" ! Both awards were awarded to students based on their character. Congratulations to all recipients we are proud of this wonderful accomplishment!


As our Teacher Appreciation Week quickly approaches, we need your help to make this week a great success! Below you will find details regarding all the events taking place, including our Annual Teacher Appreciation Italian Dinner, that is open to all!

Last month our OSS Fighting Orkkas Fencing Team was featured on the USA Facebook Page. We are so proud of their hard work in their inaugural year and we are looking forward to watching them grow!


Our OSS Science Olympiad Team is always making sure they are challenging themselves to be the best! And it's no surprise that during their recent camping trip they worked on team building events to become more effective as a team! Congratulations to this team on another unforgettable year!

OSS Students Take On The "BACE EXAM"

This past Saturday OSS had its very own BACE exam. The BACE exam is a certification exam for our Biomedical students! These students have taken almost 3 years of biomed. Students were tested not just on test information but also on practical laboratory techniques! This exam tests them on their knowledge over the past years, from culturing bacteria to separating DNA. Students who pass the BACE exam will be certified Biotech Assistants. Biotech Assistants can work in college or clinical labs! They can make much more than minimum wage while doing research in their field of interest. Results will be in within two weeks. Good work Orcas!

Message from The OSS School Counselor Ms. Bumgarner

A Message from the Counselor


Greetings All!


As a school counselor, I receive many e-mails/calls from parents wanting to know what they can do to help their child succeed. Here are a few basic tips!


Expectations

Expect your child to succeed, and their chances for success improve greatly. Expect them to come up short, and the odds are that they will. Children are very aware of how their parents view them, and they often tailor their actions to those views. Communicate your expectations and your rationale behind them to your child. It’s important to base your expectations on your child, not yourself. Remember each child is an individual who has strengths and weaknesses like all individuals.


Environment/Schedule

Create a suitable environment for homework. Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to study. If you do not have internet access at home, please inform the school, they can help brainstorm about ways to get around this roadblock. Create, with your child, a daily schedule. They should study or do homework every day (except for special family events, of course) no more than two hours per day. Be available during homework time to look over homework and give suggestions, but never do your child’s homework for them. Be interested and have them teach you something. Teaching someone else a concept is one of the best ways to learn!


Balance

Academic success is important when it comes to our children. However, teaching our kids how to balance their individual well-being while succeeding academically is also an important skill. This skill of balancing wellness and work is one that can carry them forward into their adult lives. Kids have very little control over their lives. Please don’t pack their schedules full of after school activities without their knowledge. Children of every age need time to relax, play, workout, and take a brain break after their very rigorous school day. Together, choose a couple of activities per week that help them follow their passions or interests. Make sure it fits in your schedule and that you still have time to do schoolwork and enjoy family time.

Lastly, attitude is everything! Consider your attitude about learning new concepts or following directions at your place of work. Keep in mind, children hear everything, and they learn from you daily!


If you have any questions or if you would like to make an appointment to meet with me, feel free to email me.


Sincerely,

Ms. B

Orlando Science Science Olympiad MS Team Takes Team Building to a whole another level!

OSS Science Olympiad Middle School Team Members were invited by one of our OSS parents, Mr. Jeyasingam, to a day camp at Moss Park. Our students participated in leadership and team building games to enhance their ability to work together and think outside the box. The parents were involved in the games and worked with the students’. We also went on a nature hike, had a cook out, a campfire and as always, they played soccer. It was a great learning experience as well as a lot of fun for all involved and we would like to Thank Mr. Jeyasingam and Tony Cepero of Scout Venture Crew 617 for organizing this event. We look forward to the next camp which will be in the Fall prior to the start of the Science Olympiad competition season.

Orlando Science Middle High Home Visits

Dear OSS Parents and Guardians ,


We like to find ways to communicate with parents to support our mutual involvement in your child’s education. As part of OSS tradition, we are organizing home visits as a way to reach out to our families and get to know them better. We would like to set up a time for a few of your students teachers to have a brief 20-30 minute home visit. Home visits are an effective way to establish positive contact and communication with families. They are not a replacement for parent-teacher conferences, but are a process through which teachers demonstrate their support for students’ families by visiting the home environment where the family feels comfortable. Home visits originate from a sincere desire to assist and work with families. We will be glad to visit you and your child at a convenient time. If you would like to host a home visit, please select one of the days below. We will be organizing quarterly home visits. If you are not available during first quarter, you always can choose a day later on in the school year. We look forward to visiting you!


Sincerely, Orlando Science Schools Teachers and Staff
