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.

THis week in Kindergarten we explored the “Land Down Under”! We learned about the geography of Australia, unique animals, people and interesting foods! We also learned how the seasons are opposites of ours in the Northern Hemisphere and how Australia is home to 20 of the 25 most venomous snakes in the world, the most venomous spiders and jellyfish!

First Grade

This week in Ms. Molnar’s class we read a story called “Winners Never Quit”. We learned that you might not always win but it is more fun to play the game than to quit. We also finished up our math chapter on 2-D shapes. Thank-you to all the families and kids who sent something in this week! It was greatly appreciated!

Second Grade

Third Grade

Mrs. Anderson’s friends joined Ms. Hurley’s crew to partake in a math prep carnival! We studied hard for the math FSA by reviewing all skills learned this year, and celebrated our successes with a fun carnival!

All of third grade is looking forward to our Fun Spot Field Trip next Friday! Parents, please be sure your child is on time this day.

Fourth Grade

Fourth grade finished FSA testing for the year this week! We are so proud of all of our students and appreciate all of their hard work. Mrs. Michaud’s class has been busy working on a special project for Writing, continuing to do research for their Big Dreams projects, and exploring some 6th grade concepts in Math.

As a reminder, 4th grade has I-Ready testing Monday-Thursday next week. Please remind your child of the importance of taking his/her time and putting maximum effort into his/her work on this test!

Fifth Grade

Sixth Grade

As we begin to wrap up the year, the students in Ms. Kish’s rotation are enjoying learning about the game of chess. Chess originated in India under the Gupta Empire. The word “checkmate” comes from the Arabic word “shah mat” which translates to “The King is dead” in English. The game transcends religion, race, age, and socio-economic. More than 600 million people know how to play chess. It’s wonderful to watch the students who know how to play teach others the game. Psychologists note chess as an effective way to solve complex problems and work through ideas.
