Pageturners for January!
Pageturners is Olson's book of the month club. Each month we read a different book and meet once a week during lunch on Tuesdays. Here's what we're reading:
6th Grade meets in Mr. Swanson's room and will be reading When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead.
7th Grade meets in Mrs. Gillis' room and will be reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
8th Grade meets in the Media Center and will be reading Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin.
Do you like creating and making? Want to 3D print, build a Lego robot, or design your own video game? You should join us for Makerspace Club!

Starting Thursday, October 25 and continuing every Thursday from 2:45-3:45. If you have questions, talk to Mr. Beck, Ms. Honerbrink, or Ms. Pedersen. No need to signup, just show up

Have an Idea for a News Show Feature?
Do you know of something happening here at OMS in a club, activity or classroom that should be shared? Is someone at OMS doing something outstanding, like a fabulous volunteer? or an activity that needs recognition? We'd love to create a feature based on your idea, just let us know and we'll see what we can do. Just fill out the Feature Idea Form (http://preview.tinyurl.com/show-feature) electronically or stop by the Media Center, fill out the form and drop it in the green feature suggestion box.
Please take the time to look through the OMS Student Handbook. It contains information on expectations, consequences and procedures here at Olson Middle.
