Civil War Experts!

The 6th Grade took part in a field trip to Richmond to learn even more during their Civil War unit.  Students enjoyed visiting the American Civil War Museum in the morning and learned about the daily life of civil war soldiers as well as the battlefield medical practices.  The afternoon found the students touring the White House of the Confederacy where Jefferson Davis lived during the war years.  Students were fascinated with walking in the foot steps of those who had gone before and only wished for more time!  Thank you Mrs. Kunz for bringing history to life for us!

Thank you, Mrs. Troy!

God bless you, Mrs. Troy!

We say goodbye this year to Mrs. Kathy Troy, who spent the past 16 years as an OLMC History teacher, topping off her 36-year teaching career. She has many wonderful memories of teaching middle school, from field trips and classroom simulations to the everyday laughs and antics of her students. One of her proudest moments was being nominated by a former OLMC student for Who’s Who of American Teaching. Mrs. Troy’s coaching and encouragement helped this struggling middle schooler to blossom in high school, and her student honored Mrs. Troy with respect and gratitude. She retires with a long to-do list of projects, including traveling to see her grandchildren in Germany and completing sewing projects from her towering stack of fabric. Thank you so much for your dedication and love of our students!
