    Weekly Update for the week of October 30th   

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

    Thank you to all who were able to attend our OMS Fall Festival last evening. We had a great turn out and a great time. Your participation and support is very much appreciated.

    Looking ahead to next week, as Tuesday is Halloween please note that we will not be permitting costumes to be worn to school and please make sure your child candy is not being taken to school.  Thanks for your support with this.

    Friday will be on our Activity Day bell schedule as we will have grade level assemblies to pass out honor roll and principal list certificates and end our day with our OMS quarter 2 Pep Rally so we will have lots of fun on Friday.  Also this week it is the OMS Book Fair where students can visit our media center in their language arts classes to shop if they choose to do so.

    Parents of 8th graders, Seminole High School will be holding an inaugural Wally Warhawk Fall Festival to support community engagement and the Warhawk Way!  This event is set for Thursday, November 16th from 6-8 p.m. Families may come and go at will throughout the evening for this event.

    As Thanksgiving soon approaches, we are collecting non-perishable food items for families in need. If you are willing and able to donate, you drop off items in our front office, car line, or send with your child. Our goal is to feed 20-25 families this year so any support is much appreciated.

    Last, our Guideline for Success focus next week is on being Active Learners and our Fun Friday Tee Day is to wear an OMS shirt as it is an OMS Spirit day for our Pep Rally on Friday. 

    That’s all the announcements for this week. Thank you Chief parents for your support and have a great weekend!

    Weekly Update for the week of October 23rd

    Next week is a very busy week for OMS as it is our Red Ribbon Spirit Week, the start of our Future Cities Design Challenge in enrichment classes,and Fall Festival on Friday.

    For our OMS Red Ribbon Spirit Week we begin Monday with:

    • Monday- “Drugs Are a Thing of the Past” so students and staff can dress up in your 80's/Neon Attire.
    • Tuesday- “Friends Don’t Let Friends Do Drugs” so Twin with a friend.
    • Wednesday – “Say Boo to Drugs” Wear a Halloween shirt or orange or black.
    • Thursday – “Team Up Against Drugs” Wear your favorite sports team jersey or shirt.
    • Friday- “Rally In Red” We pledge to be drug free. Wear a red shirt.

    All pants/bottoms & shoes need to be in OMS dress code. T-Shirts can be in PCSB dress code that follow the daily theme.

    Also this week our Leadership Club is selling Boo Grams for $2 each before school where students can recognize a peer or faculty member and get them candy along with the note.  All the proceeds for this go to the OMS Food pantry.  We also could always use donations for our food pantry so feel free to send any perishable food items with your child or drop them off in our front office.

    Wednesday will be our next SAC and PTSA meetings in our media center. SAC begins at 5:30 and PTSA follows at 6pm. You are all welcome to attend 1 or both meetings.  We look forward to seeing you there.

    This Friday, October 27th from 5:30-8pm we will have our annual Fall Festival here at OMS.  There will be 6 food trucks or vendors, games with prizes, a movie on the big screen in the cafeteria, the Book Fair in the media center and even a haunted house.  In addition, we will have a mini DAP Fair with several high schools here to provide information and answer questions about their school’s District Application Program.  Largo High, Richard Jacobson Tech High, Countryside High, as well as Pinellas Park High will all be here Friday until 6:30pm.  This is for all students and parents as it is never too early to begin planning for the right fit for your child’s high school experience. 

    Looking ahead, The OMS Book Fair will be the week of October 30th - November 2nd where students can visit in thier language arts classes. 

    Parents, the Take Stock in Children scholarship deadline has been extended.  For more information, please see the flyer attached and if you believe you may qualify, I strongly recommend you apply as this program has supported thousands of PCS students in earning free college.

    Weekly Update for the week of October 17th  

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

    Don’t forget there is no school Monday October 16th as that is a staff professional development day.  It is hard to believe that Tuesday already begins the second quarter.  Report cards will be sent home with students on October 26th and will also be posted in focus at that time. Basketball tryouts will take place starting Tuesday October 17th thru October 19th with Boys starting at 8am and girls will try out after school until 5:45pm.  In order to tryout, any student participating in tryouts must have their athletic paperwork completed and can take with them to tryouts.  Students who already played or tried out for a different sport this school year do not have to resubmit their paperwork.

     

     

    Looking ahead, on October 27th from 5:30-8pm we will have our annual Fall Festival here at OMS.  Attached to the email update you will see a flyer for all the details as there will be food trucks, games with prizes, and even a haunted house.  Please note that we will have several high schools here to provide information and answer questions about their school’s District Application Program.  This is for all students and parents as it is never too early to begin planning for the right fit for your child’s high school experience.  As yesterday was our school picture day, we have picture retakes set for December 1st in case your child was absent or their picture did not turn out the way you hoped. Also coming up, our next SAC and PTSA meetings will take place on October 25th with SAC beginning at 5:30 in our media center and PTSA following at 6pm.

    Last, our Guideline for Success focus next week is on being Responsible and our Fun Friday Tee Day is to wear Tampa Bay Lightning shirts as the hockey season has just begun.

    That’s all the announcements for this week. Thank you Chief parents for your support and have a great weekend!

    Basketball tryouts are now set for both our boys and girls basketball teams.  All tryouts will take place October 17th thru October 19th with Boys starting at 8am and girls will try out after school until 5:45pm.  In order to tryout, any student participating in tryouts must have their athletic paperwork completed and can take with them to tryouts.  Students who already played or tried out for a different sport this school year do not have to resubmit their paperwork.
