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

April 11th 2018 OSS Track Meet

Last week we had our first track meet of the 2017-2018 year at Meadowbrook MS. OSS came in 3rd place overall. 7th grader, Michael Y. hit a PR for the 1600m with a time of 6:07. Andrew F., 7th, also hit a PR with 2:53 800m race. 7th grader Tech student, Marcus Q., hit a PR of 12.48 seconds on the 100m. Congrats to our MS atheltes! We look forward to a great second season.

Club of the Week: Scrabble Club

Scrabble is one of the world’s most famous board games, and surely the most popular word game of all time. There are many reasons for the popularity of this simple yet strategic game of words. Scrabble is a 2-4 player game where players try to achieve the highest overall score before the game ends. 7 Tiles are held secretly by each player at all times and are drawn from a bag originally containing 100 tiles. The tiles include each letter of the alphabet, some more than others, range in points (1-10) and are played on a 15x15 game board. Players continue to draw tiles until the bag is empty and one player clears their rack. Scrabble is a mentally stimulating game that builds a players vocabulary base. Although it is very simple to learn, it takes a lifetime to master. Various strategies and techniques are necessary for a player to be successful at a competitive level, or you could just brag to your friend how much better you are than them. This club is held in Mr. Murphy’s room (132) on Monday’s and is open to all grade levels!

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!
