    Good Moring Chiefs,

    I welcome you to join our efforts to expand our Parent/School relationship through active participation in our PTSA.  Attached you will find an application to become a member.  You are a vital component of your Child’s success here at OMS and we would like to provide more family centered events resulting in increased access to our campus.  Please take a moment this weekend to review your child’s grades with them.  Term I marking period ends Friday and we have an alarming number of students failing core academic courses. We need your assistance in resolving this with our staff before Report Card Grades are submitted. 

    8th Grade Students will be participating in the PSAT Wednesday.  Please see attached notification letter communicating important information regarding this opportunity for our students.  Results from this assessment will be used to support preparing your child for College and Career Readiness.  PSAT Parent Letter

    Good morning OMS Community,

    Thanks for another busy but productive week at Osceola Middle School. Please know that if you received and returned the ELP/tutoring letter that was sent home with your child’s progress report and indicated that you want your child to attend ELP; your child has been enrolled. Please review the schedule (attached) to ensure that your child is attending the ELP session(s) that you indicated for your child (Credit Recovery is different from Tutoring).  A few students are currently in need of Credit Recovery and you would have been contacted via phone if your child needs this intervention.  Please be sure to take advantage of our ELP FREE tutoring resource for your child.  Feel free to contact your child’s School Counselor if you have questions or concerns.

    Reminder: Students should not arrive on campus before 9:00 a.m.  There’s no Adult Supervision prior to that time unless prior arrangements have been made and your child’s attending a meeting, club, event, etc.  Letters will be sent home with students who arrive early as a warning prior to administering of school consequences.  We want all our students to attend school daily but it causes safety concerns if they are unsupervised.  YMCA before/after school services are available (see the link on the website or stop by the front  office to enroll your child).

    Have a relaxing OMS Chiefs weekend!  OMS Chiefs Update 10-1-18
