Echoes submissions by 6th grade writers due December 1 Echoes submissions by 6th grade writers due December 1
A creative writing exercise was facilitated earlier in the school year by actors with The REV Theatre Company as part of an in-school Arts in Education program.  It was a step toward a larger goal: participation in “Echoes,” a creative writing competition and showcase for Middle School student writers in New York State, now in its 30th year. Otselic Valley 6th graders are invited to write short songs, skits, poems, stories, commercials, or newscasts no longer than 1 and ½ pages. Submissions are due DECEMBER 1 (and don’t forget your manuscript ID form, Vikings)!

O V Star Awards: Responsibility O V Star Awards: Responsibility
The O V Star Award tradition continues at Otselic Valley this school year with a twist: each month the Star Awards reflect students who practice that month’s area of focus. This time Vikings were recognized for their responsibility:  the ability to make the right decisions and/or complete duties and jobs. Their responsibility reflects the actions and words they use with others and in shared spaces. It affects their personal goals and how they’re feeling. It shapes their work as they do their best. Well done, Vikings!

REV Theatre On Tour at Otselic Valley REV Theatre On Tour at Otselic Valley
Was that a brilliant blue morpho butterfly, an elusive jaguar, and...chattering monkeys on the MPR stage this morning? Yes, in a way!
As part of Arts in Education at Otselic Valley, the REV Theatre Company is providing sequential dramatic programs for our students with in-class lessons followed by single-grade stage performances, all of which align with NYS Learning Standards for the Arts and Next Generation ELA Standards. Today 5th graders got a taste of the Amazon rainforest, thanks to a REV On Tour company who presented “Emilia and the Heart of the Amazon” (written by Kyle Adkins and Rachel Benjamin). Vikings learned about the interconnectedness of all things and the importance of conserving natural resources through their class and the performance that followed. But another off-script moment was especially memorable.

Otselic Valley students present the 2021 fall play: "I Don't Want To Talk About It" Otselic Valley students present the 2021 fall play: "I Don't Want To Talk About It"
Some plays are great for an evening’s amusement; some plays are both riveting and so rich in substance that audience members will be thinking about them for a long time. This year’s production of “I Don’t Want to Talk About It”* by Bradley Hayward is the latter. In keeping with the Otselic Valley High School tradition of working with challenging material in their student-led productions, this year an ensemble cast will play multiple roles in vignettes that come together by the play’s conclusion. While the play’s themes are rooted in the experience of American teenagers everywhere, they all speak to the power of words. Two performances only: Friday, Nov. 12 at 7 pm and Saturday, Nov. 13 at 2 pm in the MPR. Tickets are $5 (adults), $4 (seniors), and $3 (students). Please note that seats must be reserved in advance by emailing Ms. Smith at [email protected] To accommodate COVID-19 protocols, seats will be assigned in family pods (small groups with space between them). Seats will not be assigned at the door; you must email Ms. Smith in advance.
