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.
Families are invited to attend a short, informational meeting about the Summer 2019 4-day trip to Washington, D.C. on Monday, Jan 22 at 6:30pm in the OMS cafeteria.

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 9, K-8 students who are interested in wrestling are invited to practice with the high school wrestling team. They will learn the sport as they work together. These five Big Brother practices will take place on Tuesdays from 3:40-4:30pm. If your child is at OES, Mr. Rogers will meet students in the quad after school and walk them to the high school.
There will be no practice on Jan 16, as this is our home varsity dual against Elkhart Lake. You and your youth wrestler are invited to watch at 7:00pm. Normal wrestling season will start Monday, Feb. 26 for grades 5-8 and Tuesday, March 6th for grades K-4.

The Oostburg Parents Music Club is sponsoring a poinsettia sale from November 17- Dec. 4. The plants will be used to decorate the High School Gym for the OMS Choir and Band Winter Concert at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, December 11. The plants come in a 6.5″ foil-covered pot from Caan’s Greenhouses in Sheboygan. You may choose either red or white plants, which will have bows of the opposite color around the pot. The minimal profit made from each sale goes directly to the OPMC, which uses the money for camp scholarships, honor band/choir registration fees, new instruments, robes, uniforms, trips, etc. Please note: All plants must be picked up immediately following the concert, since we must clear the gym for phy. ed. classes the following day. Thanks for your support!
Fill in this form and return it with your payment to the OMS office or to your child’s music teacher: Jill Hanes (band) or Mrs. Williams (choir). Checks are preferred and should be made payable to the Oostburg Parents Music Club. Orders must be placed by Monday, December 4 in order to guaranty delivery by the concert date. Please contact Jill Hanes with any questions.
