Last week the Jog-A-thon Packet went home. This event is very important for OTA. The packet includes how to track pledges and ideas to raise money; from asking friends and family to bake sales. Besides feeling good about giving back to OTA, students can win prizes! Please return the T-shirt order form by October 1st (each student receives 1 free shirt). The Jog-A-Thon will be held October 19th.
The field trip at the end of the year is expensive, but with the help of the Jog-A-Thon, that cost can be lowered with the money raised.

6th graders will also be responsible for traffic duty the first week of school. Please click on the link HERE to sign up for a job. It is important that all 6th graders volunteer. Helping out at traffic duty counts towards community service hours, which we’ll learn more about the first week of school 🙂

I hope everyone is having an amazing summer! The first day of school is right around the corner 🙂 For middle school History this year, students will need pencils and a highlighter. Some materials that might be helpful, but not necessary include scissors, erasers, ruler, colorful pens, markers, or crayons, glue stick, and lined paper. Students will have the option of typing or handwriting notes this year. If they are handwritten, students should purchase a spiral notebook.
If you would like to help out and donate some general classroom supplies, please click on the following Amazon wish list. We use a lot of art supplies in my History class as well as Art Elective. Any donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you 🙂
I’m looking forward to a great year!
