OMS sixth graders discussed culture, school life, hobbies, and heritage with Ukrainian students via the Global Art Exchange on May 16. Both groups also presented songs and art. Despite the eight hour time difference, students couldn’t resist asking “just one more question”! The Ukrainian students were interested in our food, sports, hobbies, school life, national symbols, and local legends. (Their English, one of four languages spoken, was quite impressive.) Telepresence facilitates the building of global bridges. Thanks to Ms. Harder for coordinating this special experience.
The Sheboygan Area Youth Symphony’s Sinfonia Ensemble visited Oostburg Middle School on Friday, April 21, as part of their 2017 “School Tour” and performed for the 6th and 7th Gr. Band and General Music students. The annual tour is to help the Sinfonia prepare for their final season concert, which was held on April 23rd, and it is also used to recruit new musicians for their 2017-18 season, which begins in the fall. Auditions for interested MS and HS instrumentalists will take place at South HS May 4-6. For more information, contact Jill Hanes or Rebekah Mueller.
Students in Ms. Harder’s grade 8 art class created portraits of youth from Ukraine. Some of these children have experienced abuse, neglect, or loss of family, and others have been affected by war. These treasured gifts of art brought them joy and pride…and hopefully, perhaps, a bit of hope for a brighter future.
Happy Easter! Just a friendly reminder that we have Forward Testing at OMS this week Tue and Thur. All students need to have their headphones/earbuds at school to use for the test. If student’s want to use a mouse rather than the touch pad on their Chromebook, they should bring one to use too.
Parents and community members are invited to hear Mr. Melton speak on Thursday, April 27 at 1:00pm in the Oostburg High School Gymnasium. No reservations are needed. For more information, contact Mr. Kloepping.
