Attention 5th Grade parents! Please make every effort to attend the parent information meeting for incoming 6th grade students. Celina Middle School Principal Mrs. Briscoe will discuss course selections and other important registration information for the 2022-2023 school year. Parents will receive course selection papers to take home to review with their children, and then those papers will need to be returned to O'Dell Elementary.

We want to give special recognition to our guidance counselor, Mrs. Lauri Welch! We appreciate you for being actively involved in helping our students focus on their strengths and talents, for the working partnership you have with parents, and for the encouragement and support you give the O'Dell staff members! Thank you for all that you do!

Important Information Regarding Valentine's Day Gifts

If you want to have a valentine treat sent to your child on Valentine's Day, please consider participating in the CHS Project Graduation Valentines Fundraiser.

CLOTHES NEEDED FOR NURSE BAKER'S CLINIC

Spills and accidents sometimes occur at school, especially with our younger students. Nurse Baker keeps extra clothing in her office for students when these incidents occur, but her supplies are running low. Currently the clinic needs sweatpants with elastic waists in youth sizes for girls and boys.


Donated items must be new and unused and can be brought to the front office. Also, if your child has borrowed items from the clinic, please return the used items (cleaned!) to Nurse Baker.

The Counselor's Corner

This month we’re talking about the beautiful character trait of Kindness. The dictionary defines it as: “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.” But it is so much more than that! The definition we are using in class is:

Kindness: the choice to act with words, gifts, or actions to bring appreciation, positivity, and encouragement to others and yourself.

The key part of this definition? Kindness is a choice that we get to make every day to bring good things into our lives and the world. Those good things can look like more than just some kind words; Kindness is given through our actions and our encouragement and our attitude and our gifts. We will spend time thinking about how to be kind to ourselves, to our environment, to animals, and to one another. We will get to experience meaningful words through compliments and feel the joy that comes from showing appreciation to others. We will think about how people like Jackie Chan and Booker T. Washington and Maya Angelou teach us Kindness. It will be a powerful and positive time!
