At the March OPSD School Board meeting, the board honored 3 model students! These students have shown what it means to do things “The OG Way.” They are risk-takers in and out of the classroom, they show grit in all they do, and they take ownership of their learning. We are so proud of our March students of the month, Kiera Krajewski (elementary), Beckan Cain (middle grades), and Eideann Tuttle (high school). The board also honored Kim Mestl as our staff member of the month. Keep up the great work! We greatly appreciate our community sponsors for donating prizes for these individuals to honor their accomplishments! #GoBigO #OGIndians #TheOGWay

English language learners had fun practicing career words. The twist of the game was that if they spoke in a language other than English, they had to add a clothespin to their shirt. Los estudiantes del idioma inglés se divirtieron practicando palabras de carreras. El giro del juego era que si hablaban en un idioma que no fuera inglés, tenían que agregar una pinza de ropa a su camisa. #CultureOfConfidence
