The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus.

Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
What is OM?
Odyssey of the Mind, founded in 1978, is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities designed to teach students kindergarten through college to "think outside of the box." The emphasis is on teamwork, creativity and looking at things differently. Students are encouraged to use materials in unique ways and tap into their boundless creativity~ often the most outrageous ideas are the most creative! While working together as a team to generate a single, timed solution to their problem, they also practice skills that foster lifelong learning.
The best things about OM...it is 100% kid-generated! Everything~ from selecting a problem, finding solutions, costume design, ingenuity of thought, selection of props and scenery for skit- is all created by the students. Teams meet regularly-usually once a week starting in October. Regional and State Competitions are held in the spring. All competitive teams that place first, second, or receive a special creativity award at State are eligible to advance to World Finals in May.
At each meeting, teams work on both their chosen Long Term problem and a variety of Spontaneous problems.
