    Good afternoon, Osceola Middle School Families. This is your principal Derrik Craun providing you with your weekly update.

I am sure your child is off to a great start however, if extra help is needed we have free tutoring before school starting at 8am and after school Monday through Thursday until 5pm.  In addition to tutoring, we also have clubs and other fun activities have already begun. For morning activities we ask that all students arrive as close to 8am as possible as after 8:15am we no longer permit students with the exception of UnClub on which meets on Fridays at 8:30.

    Osceola Middle School Raises Awareness and Funds for Artists in Central America
    From 09/11/2023 to 10/06/2023, Osceola Middle School's Mrs. Melecio’s Spanish Class will be selling hand-woven bracelets, or ‘pulseras’ in Spanish, to empower the artists who make them in Nicaragua & Guatemala. The sale was organized through the Pulsera Project, a Fair Trade nonprofit organization that empowers and educates people in the U.S. and Central America through pulsera sales. If your child would like to purchase a bracelet to support this cause, the cost is $7 cash in Ms. Melecio’s room 4-201.

    Student and teacher volunteers raise funds that benefit fair trade jobs, worker rights, sustainability, and education, while learning about the culture, lives, and struggles of Central Americans. The Pulsera Project’s goal is to create a more just and colorful world by encouraging conscious consumerism and social enterprise. For more information, visit www.pulseraproject.org
