Collier OMA Gold News
Happy New Year, and welcome back! This semester, all grades are working on linking various art forms to their science units. January is a rather quiet month; we are laying the foundation for our OMA Celebration that will be held in May.
The art history lesson for the month is Surrealism, and students will be working with pencil and chalk on cardboard to create their surrealist drawings.
Reminder: if your student is in grades 3, 4, or 5 more notes about the OMA Honors Choir will be coming home over the next few weeks. Auditions for this choir will be held the week of January 23rd.
Health Office News
The health office thanks you for continuing to keep your student home if there are any symptoms of illness. If your child tests positive for COVID, please let the health office know as soon as possible. If your child has been ill but tested negative for COVID, is fever free and not vomiting or having diarrhea, it is a good idea to have him/her wear a mask upon return to school to prevent the spread of all germs to classmates.
PLEASE consider a donation of facial tissues (such as kleenex) to the health office. We appreciate it!
