Principal's Corner

Dear Families and Students,

I hope everyone had a wonderful first week of school and are ready for a successful year! It has been great to see so many familiar Orcas and welcome new Orcas to the OSS Family!

Each week our "Weekly Newsletter" will be sent home via email and may also be found on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Our weekly newsletters are a great resource to stay in the know of everything going on at our Lynx Campus. This week's newsletter is filled with many important reminders and announcements so start our year off on the right foot!

This Saturday, our Robotics Team will host Informational Meeting at our High School Campus, you will find more information under the Upcoming Events section below.

Orcas, our picture day will be this Thursday, August 22th. All 7th and 8th grade students must be in uniform in order to get their picture taken. Order forms were sent out this week and can also be ordered online as well as at the school front desk.

Curriculum Night for 7th grade Orcas is Monday, August 26th and 8th grade Orcas is Tuesday, August 27th. This is a night that allows parents to visit their student’s classroom and learn about the curriculum. A sign up link will be sent soon.

As we end the first week of school, I would like to thank all parents and students for following school staff directions and our dismissal and pick up procedures. This helped a lot to have smooth traffic lanes. Please check your student's schedule for the pickup times.

Just a reminder that parents should not be dropping off or picking up their students at the front desk. Please use the car line both in the mornings and the afternoons. There will be no pickup from the front desk after 2:30PM, 1:30PM on Wednesdays.

We are looking forward to another fantastic year at Orlando Science Middle High School!

Go Orcas, Strive for Excellence!
