What do Jell-O, crabs, cookie sheets and driverless cars have in common? Our OLMC school students know the answer: these were just some of the topics they presented at the school’s annual science fair on Nov. 14.

Now in its seventh year, this academic event is represented by students from all grade levels. The Pre-K through fourth grade students complete increasingly complex class projects, learning to make observations, ask questions and create hypotheses. Our eighth grade students take their entries beyond our school, creating data analysis projects for the GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium in the spring of 2018.

To honor our OLMC military – active duty, retired, reserve and veterans – our school hosted a special celebration for Veterans Day in November. More than 50 personnel representing all six branches of the armed forces attended our “Bring Your Service Member to School” event.

Kathy McKenna, emcee and OLMC Military Liaison, coordinated the event with a team of enthusiastic volunteers. “Our goal was to convey gratitude,” she said. “We wanted not only to thank our military for their service, but we also wanted to thank them for giving OLMC the opportunity to teach our students the importance of the virtue of patriotism.”
