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 that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
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. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

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.
