PR Families,

It was a fun, creative, thrilling, sometimes heart-breaking day yesterday at Eastern High School, where 39 Forest Hills Odyssey of the Mind teams and their peers from surrounding school districts presented their OM Long Term solutions and solved challenging Spontaneous problems!

We celebrate each and every student who participated in this year's event. Every team solved their problems, so every team came home winners! There also are many champions who will compete at the OM State Finals Tournament on March 14. Typically the top two teams advance, although additional teams move on when there are seven or more teams competing in a given problem and division.

Thanks again for supporting our students!!

-Ren Brace
