OES students enjoyed some time twirling, gliding, balancing, and skating on the ice! Thanks to Mr. Herzog for putting together the Blue Line skating event. This opportunity is a nice way for some students to a experience a winter activity that they may not otherwise get to try. For others, it’s a good way to hone their skills! Thanks as well to our parent and high school student volunteers, and to the 1st-3rd grade teachers that got on the ice, with skates or boots, to help their students.

On February 7, fifth grade students dressed up and participated in games and activities typical of a child their age during the Colonial times in America. Students enjoyed playing dominoes, jacks, marbles, and pick up sticks, making candles, and creating crafts with stencils and embroidery. It was a nice opportunity to travel back in time! This gave some context to their current social studies unit on the Revolutionary War.

OMS students had the unique opportunity to page through pristine primary source documents. Most of the newspapers are from the 1930s and from the Twins Cities. They were removed from a house wall by a local contractor. Because it was the Great Depression, we can predict that the newspapers were being used as insulation, since most of them had been stitched together. They had been hidden away in total darkness for nearly 80 years before they had been recovered. Students enjoyed reading the headlines and noticing the nuances of life around the time of World War II.
