Trimester 1 Report Cards
Trimester 1 Report Cards will be sent home to parent/guardian emails on Thursday, December 13th. The Report Cards will be sent as password protected PDF attachments, along with instructions for passwords and opening. Please contact the OMS Office if you are having trouble opening the attachment, or if you would like to request a paper copy be sent in the regular mail.
Here is some other information about trimester grading reports and honor rolls from the Student and Parent Handbook (page 16):
MID-TERM PROGRESS REPORTS
All students will receive mid-term progress reports. These reports will be sent home electronically and posted on the Parent Portal, though families are able to request these reports be sent home in the mail. Remember, this is only halfway through the trimester. You still have time to improve your grade, study harder and seek extra help from your teacher.
Report cards will be issued about a week after marks close for each trimester. Report cards will be sent home electronically and posted to the Parent Portal. Any parent/guardian may request a paper copy of the report card from their child’s guidance counselor.
In order to make the Honor Roll at O’Donnell Middle School, you must have A’s and B’s in all subjects and exhibit good conduct. Students with straight A’s will receive High Honors. If you receive the comment, “poor conduct” you automatically lose your right to be on the Honor Roll. The Knights of Honor Roll recognizes students who have been nominated by their teachers for exhibiting the values of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. in the O’Donnell Middle School mission statement.

"At the heart of Project 351 is the dedication and compassion of our 8th grade Ambassadors. Youth are selected by local educators for their exemplary ethic of service and values of kindness, compassion, humility, and generosity of spirit. Project 351 encourages the selection of quiet leaders and unsung heroes."
Congratulations to all of this year's nominees (from left to right in photo): Kyla Sheedy-Goff; Luisa Silva; Mya Ricardo; Abigail Bettencourt; Jaelyn Williams. All of the nominees have been recognized here at OMS and will be awarded a certificate by the Stoughton School Committee in February.
