Local poet, Bill Buczinsky, kept us all in rhythm. We shared some poems throughout the day. A couple of drums and a smooth beat, now we're all poets! WGN News showed up to check out the action. There will likely be a feature story next week. We'll keep you posted on the air date.
Assistant Principal Owen had a very busy morning on Wednesday, April 27. He began his day around 8:45 by welcoming students and families in the drop off zone. He was asked by Mrs. FitzPatrick to inspect the school elevator which was found to be in working order. Owen also conducted classroom observations, inspected the playlot and playground for safety concerns, and assisted with removing the letters from the OMS sign out front. By noon, he was ready to become a first grader again!

We recently welcomed a new nurse to OMS. Mary-Beth Lorentzen is with us on Monday's and Friday's. Mrs. Lorentzen previously worked at Northwest Community Hospital. She has always wanted to try school nursing and when the opportunity arose she jumped at the chance to join District 25. When asked how she likes her new job she said she is loving it!
