Mrs. Lauritsen will again be supervising an after school study hall in the OMS library from 2:30-3:15pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting this week. If work completion, reading, or studying is difficult to fit in at night or you have a hard time helping your child because how or what we learned in school was different, here is a chance for students to get it done before they go home. Please encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity!
