Last Day of School Important Information

We have lots of fun things planned for the last day of school (Tuesday, June 7th) including our 5th grade breakfast, all school bingo, and yearbook signing. The last day will be a full day of school. A couple of years ago, we started a new last day of school tradition at OMS, our all school send off for 5th grade students. At the conclusion of the last day, students in grades K-4 create a human tunnel for our 5th grade students pass through on their final walk out of the building. We invite the entire OMS community to join us at the end of the tunnel to wish the 5th grade students well as they head off to middle school. As with many other events, we have worked hard to create plans that prevent construction from getting in the way of our day-to-day functioning. We are excited to announce that we have a plan for this year's tunnel, but it will require your help.

We are going to close our parking lot for pick up on the last day of school to allow the human tunnel to be formed in this area. No cars will be allowed in the OMS lot at the end of the last day of school. Parents wanting to pick up their child(ren) on this day will need to park in the church parking lot, walk to the OMS parking lot, and pick up their child after the 5th grade send-off.

Thank you for your help in making this a great last day for our 5th grade students!

Fill the Nest Human Chain

So, just how do the bags for our Fill the Nest collection get from the Commons to the truck? See below! Thanks to many student and parent volunteers, we donated many bags of food to the Wheeling Township Food Pantry.

Music to Our Ears

This morning OMS 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders were treated to a morning of music by the 5th-Grade OMS Band and a visit from TMS Jazz Band.  We enjoyed identifying all of the different types of instruments and tapping and clapping along to the beat!
