Homecoming week at OMS is always a fun way for students to show off their school spirit and creativity. Each morning, I look forward to the students arriving to school dressed in the theme for the day. Included in this post are pictures of students that participated in crazy hair/mismatch and twin/squad day. Way to show off your school spirit OMS!

Good Morning OES Families!
As we begin Homecoming week, I wanted to pass along an opportunity for you to get involved in supporting our school district. The Oostburg Community Education Foundation (OCEF) has been a generous supporter of our school district and school mission for years. They are currently running their largest annual fundraiser, the Homecoming Raffle. I would encourage you to consider taking part and buying some raffle tickets. Not only are the raffle prizes really nice, but the funds do directly back into our schools. There are images of some of the available prizes, with the entire array of prizes on display in the high school. More
Are you aware that last year alone our Parents Music Club donated $9,719 from running our concessions stands? That money goes directly to our music program allowing things that a regular budget may not provide.
Finding an adequate number of volunteers to help with concessions is a challenge, and that is the purpose of this post. Please check out the following Sign Up Genius links and consider helping out. We have a top notch music program and PMC is a large part of our success. You may also check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Parents-Music-Club-Oostburg-228450417202494/

Enjoy this day!
With state population growth slowing and unemployment at record low levels many communities are considering the challenges of finding enough people to fill available jobs. The recent Foxconn approval means workforce development demands in Wisconsin will continue to be a priority. Oostburg’s strong business presence, along with the addition of the new Master’s Gallery plant, means we will feel this reality locally as well.
As superintendent I am involed in both the Oostburg and Sheboygan Chamber of Commerce and discussions around workforce development and housing have been central in both organizations. Oostburg School District is playing an active role in this conversation as we seek to fulfill our mission of ensuring all students learn at high levels so they can be productive members of society and the world. I encourage families to check out bit.ly/2xeVsw8 to view our district’s work in Academic and Career Planning (ACP). Our plan has been a model for other districts and is building a strong foundation between a student’s academic preparation at OSD and their transition into the workforce, technical school, college or the military.
A recent survey asked municipal officials to share their perspective on the most important factors in attracting and retaining employees. Available housing in areas with high quality local schools came up as priority #1, ahead of business opportunities, parks, taxes, housing prices, and utility costs. We believe OSD provides an excellent education and is an asset in attracting families and businesses to our community. That helps in making Oostburg a great place to raise a family.
Enjoy this day,
Good morning, Parents and Teachers.
