Dear Oswegatchie School Community,
Next Wednesday, October 26th we will be hosting a visiting Mexican Artist, Cilan Valadez. Cilan will be setting up his yarn painting workshop in the art room. This is brought to us through a donation from the OSOS and the Margaritas Outreach designs program. This program brings master craftspeople and artists from Mexico to area schools creating an enriching environment showcasing the culture and art of Mexico and Central America. Classes will watch a yarn painting being created from beginning to end and will receive a sample for our art room collection. Thanks to the OSO and Art Teacher Mary Hendrickson for bringing this great experience for students to our school.
On Thursday, November 10th we will be honoring Veterans here at Oswegatchie. We will be holding a ceremony in the gymnasium at 2:15. We will be honoring both past and present military personnel. My older brother is an Army veteran and a member of the National Guard. He has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan so Veteran’s Day is near and dear to my heart.
On Saturday, October 29th, the OSO will hold the Annual Oswegatchie Fall Festival, from 12 to 3 p.m. There will be many fun activities for you and the children to participate in. There will be a trunk or treat during this fun event, come and decorate your trunk during this exciting event. The OSO is also still looking for donations of Candy for the Trunk of Treat.
