Good morning, Parents.
In the spirit of giving, we are collecting toys to be given to children in foster care in Wisconsin. Please bring an unwrapped toy for a child of any age and place them in the barrels in the elementary and middle schools.
You are invited to the 2nd Annual Empty Bowls Event before the HS Music Concert in the HS cafeteria. Ms. Harder’s art students and a few faculty members have made bowls for a silent auction, and Mr. Ohlf’s students have made three different kinds of soup to enjoy for a donation. All proceeds are going to the Food for Tomorrow program, which is part of the United Way of Sheboygan County. We hope to see you there!
Just a friendly reminder that there are only two more days remaining for the OMS Book Fair. Send money with your child or stop in and shop for Christmas or other holiday gifts. Support the school and a child….because reading matters!
During a time when many school districts across Wisconsin are making budget driven cuts to their music departments, I am pleased to share that Oostburg has taken the opposite approach. I would argue that our music program, and our overall offerings in the arts, are second to none when considering comparable size districts. Fall and early winter provide multiple opportunities to see our talented young people perform. From the excellent fall musical lead by Ms. Lutze to the performances by our band and choir students during Veteran’s Day, we are fortunate to have top notch staff leading strong programs across the board.
Oostburg High School art teacher, Miss Harder has been making plans to live off the grid, be mobile, save money, and be environmentally responsible. The tiny house project developed over the span of 5 years by Miss Harder and in this video, the first in our series, we introduce the real world experiences our students will receive by making Miss Harder’s dream a reality.
As excitement is building and students are getting anxious for Christmas to finally arrive, there are opportunities all around us to teach them that giving is often more important than receiving. Just about everywhere we go, there are red kettles, giving trees, and other reminders about the importance of giving to those that are less fortunate than we are. With the spirit of giving in mind, OMS is partaking in a toy drive for children in foster care in Sheboygan County. For some of these children, this may be the only toy they receive this holiday season. This toy drive will run through December 17. Please consider donating an unwrapped toy, book, or anything else an infant through teenager might enjoy this holiday season. There is a wrapped bin in the OMS Cafeteria where toys can be left. Thank you to those that have already donated to this worthy cause!
