Good morning OMS Community,
Term 3 Report Cards were distributed Friday. Attached you will find the updates and applicable information for the upcoming week! I encourage you to review the Testing Schedule to ensure you are aware of the date(s) your child is scheduled to participate in State or District Assessments. We're asking for your support in making our Testing Season a smooth and stress free experience for our students. OMS Staff has done an amazing job preparing our students and we know that they are ready to demonstrate what they have learned. We have several school wide incentives for our students who stay focused, demonstrate their best effort, and utilize the strategies they've been taught during this year.
Additional Important Dates:
- April 3rd: Staff Meeting (Cafeteria - 8:50 a.m.)
- April 8th: SAC Meeting (Media Center – 5:30 p.m.)
- April 9th & 10th : District Middle School Track Meet (Osceola Fundamental High School)
- We will be hosting our final Pep Rally on Friday, April 12th (activity day schedule). We will be enforcing some disciplinary guidelines in order for students to attend. Students will be ineligible if they receive any disciplinary referrals between March 26th and April 12th.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning Chiefs,
Please see attached newsletter for the upcoming week of March 25, 2019. I encourage parents to have conversations with your child about the importance of focusing and using the skills our Teachers have equipped them with for the upcoming Standardized Testing season we have beginning on April 1st. Additionally, I encourage parents to review the attached 2019 OMS Testing Schedule (and review resources on our school web site) to avoid scheduling doctor’s appointments and other activities that may impede upon your child’s ability to complete their assessment(s) during the regularly scheduled time.
It’s my intent to maintain a high level of structure with minimum disruptions each day we are scheduled to Test. Please understand that we want to avoid pulling your child out of their assigned testing location to ensure all students have an optimal testing environment. Thanks in advance for your understanding. Feel free to contact your child’s Grade Level Administrator or School Counselor in advance if you’re aware of conflicts.
Have a great OMS Week!
Solomon J. Lowery, Ed. D.
Principal, Osceola Middle School
