The Week Ending 5-10-19
Dear OSS Technology Campus Families,
We are pleased to announce that there will be a 6th Grade Kickball tournament on May 24th. 6th grade students will be able to build teams of 10 to compete against other teams. The champions of the student tournament will then face off against the Teachers for their final challenge. Please see Mr. Clark before or after school for team sign-up questions and sign-up sheets.
Congratulations to our Girls on The Run Team on an outstanding season. They completed their Final 5K this weekend in less than 40 minutes. Congratulations to Coach Zaremski for leading the team this year and inspiring the runners.
The lost and found is filled with water bottles, jackets, and lunch boxes. If your student is missing anything, please check the lost and found in both buildings 1 and 2. Anything left at the end of the year will be donated.
The Technology Campus is incredibly thankful for all of our faithful readers, and for that we would like to reward our families. Moving forward we will have a NEWSLETTER QUIZ located under the Principal's corner.
Dress down passes will be rewarded to the students who receive a 100% on the quiz for that week!
We hope that you have fun, and enjoy reading this week's edition! Entries are due the morning of
Thank you to everyone who partook in the newsletter quizzes each week! There will be no more quizzes for the remainder of the year.
