Big news: The Otselic Valley Library claims official Reading Room status through the 4 County Library System! We now have a rotating collection of books that will switch out every 6 months from the public library system servicing Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Otsego Counties. This array of books in all genres will be of interest to readers outside of school who visit during Open Library hours (every Tuesday school is in session, from 3-7 pm). What will you check out next?
No matter what their grade, every student has the power to positively impact the school environment. We know these good deeds and good attitudes are expressed all the time but when staff see kindness in action, they can turn into O V Star Awards. Miss Blake briefly steps out of retirement to join us at Afternoon Program for the surprise recognition throughout the school year. Although the photos typically capture younger students, read carefully -- High School and Middle School students are awesome too!

As part of a required school health examination, a student is weighed and his/her height is measured. Students' "body mass index" is included in a list of weight status groups, and that information may be submitted to the New York State Department of Health if our school is asked to be in a survey of select school districts. Only summary information is sent. No names and no information about individual students are sent. However, you may choose to have your child's information excluded from this survey report.

There is a reason Mr. Roy's 6th grade STE(A)M class was literally buzzing this morning. Vikings chose from among self-directed projects and kits, some of which included motor sensors, electronic circuits, and even boxing robots. This work was an opportunity to learn new technologies and even innovate by making something new with found materials.
