Membes of the Otselic Valley Central School District community are invited to participate in strategic planning for O V on November 6/7, and November 28/29 from 8 AM - 3:30 PM (including lunch) each day. Sean Brady, an experienced facilitator and President of Prism Decision Systems, will work with 20-25 who will together look at the District. The diverse group will imagine the District's future, work on collaborative evaluation and decision-making, and arrive at what Brady has described as "group genius." This planning is part of Superintendent Rob Berson's intent for the District: all stakeholder groups should have a voice, he tells us, and it's important to grow positive relationships, align current and future initiatives, and demonstrate transparency within our school community.

John Decker isn't just OV's band director. He is also a long-distance endurance cyclist, and he's putting those talents to work on behalf of our student musicians. On September 22 or 29 (depending on conditions), he will ride 100 miles in ascending elevations on a fundraising journey that is expected to take over 7 continuous hours. All for band students.

Who were those superheroes and Hogwartsians in our classrooms this summer? These powerful, magical students were also super readers taking part in OV’s first annual Summer Reading Camp! Designed to halt “summer slide,” our teachers offered one-week, half-day, in-school camps to keep students reading so they are refreshed and ready to keep advancing when school starts again.
