OHS Band Students go to Washington D.C.
As you may know, I took 31 members of our band to Washington D.C. last week to perform on the reflecting pool steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Holy Cow! We encountered many different tour guides throughout our time there. I was SO IMPRESSED because our students answered every question thrown at them by every guide. Granted, not every student knew the answer to every question, but there was not a single question, bit of trivia or inquiry that was not answered confidently by at least one of our students.
In addition to their obvious intelligence (and clear love of our Social Studies Curriculum) they behaved in a way that made me so proud. We encountered several other student groups from throughout the country, and I was SO THANKFUL to be associated with our students, who understood how to be respectful and and polite.
THANK YOU for your part in educating these fine young men and women and for piquing their interest in our nation's history!

Please join the Oscoda Students and Staff in collecting Pop Tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in Ann Arbor
Since opening in 1985, they have been welcoming more than 600 families as guests of the Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor each year. In 2011, they opened another Ronald McDonald House within C.S. Mott Children's Hospital that can accommodate an additional 12 families per night. Families from the U.S. and around the world come to be near their children who are being treated at one of several world-class hospitals here in Ann Arbor.
The Ronald McDonald Houses provide a temporary, inexpensive "home away from home" for these families. This supportive environment is made possible through the generous contributions of many organizations, businesses and individuals, and through the hands-on work of hundreds of volunteers. Click Here for more information on how the program works.
Ms. Snyder has placed collection buckets at the following locations RES teacher's lounge, OHS in the commons, and the OHS Teacher's lounge.
