I would like to extend a warm thank you to all the families that participated in the 4th Annual Taste of OMS. To see the families working together for our kids was priceless! The turnout was fabulous, the food delicious and it was our 30th birthday as a school so many of the alumni came back to share in the festivities. The recurrent theme was how pretty the school looks after 30 years! This is a tribute to our students who go out of their way to keep things neat and clean and to plant operations for making certain it stays that way!

Thanks for your support. Have a wonderful week!

Please only park in the visitor’s parking if you are coming in to the school. If you want to pick your child up afterschool, please park over at the high school. Mr. Eiben will gladly help the kids cross over so they can pick up their ride there.

Good Morning Osceola Families,

Today is our first day of school. Sixth graders who already received their schedules Thursday evening can head straight to first period class once the bell rings. If you didn’t attend the orientation and you need a schedule, please report to the picnic tables.

Seventh graders will find their schedules in the cafeteria and eighth graders will go to the gym to get their schedules. Lockers will be issued first period so bring your locks. You will have to put your cell phones in a locker or we will hold it for you in the office until the day is over. All the students will receive a planner first period. Parents, please ask your child to show this to you tomorrow when he or she gets home. The kids will be using these as the first line of communication between you and our school.

Many of you are coming from a school where every student received free lunch. That is not the case at Osceola. If you feel your child is eligible, please get on this website http://www.applyforlunch.com/ and fill out the application. You can wait for the forms to come home on the first day of school, but this is much quicker.

Our dress code will be strictly enforced so kids, please remember to refer to it when you are choosing your outfits for school.

Have a great day! We are looking forward to seeing all of you this week!

Sue Arsenault, Principal

Greetings, Chiefs!

Pinellas County Schools has released the cut scores for the 2013-14 Civics EOC. These scores will tell you the letter grade of the test, but not yet the achievement level (the usual 1-5 score, as on the FCAT). This will merely help you to see how your student did on the test, grade-wise.

The scores are in Focus (Portal) and are labeled "T_Score." The T_Score conversions are below:

  • 55-80 = A
  • 45-54 = B
  • 36-44 = C
  • 22-35 = D
  • 20-21 = F

Good Afternoon Osceola Familes,

This is our final call out for the school year!

Wednesday is an early release day. Students will leave at 2 pm.

Parents, don’t forget to pick up your child’s medication by June 4th.

Our 8th grade dance is 6 pm. until 8 pm. on Tuesday, June 3rd.

Parents, grades will be a little later this year because end of course exams figure into the students final grades. This is the case for all 7th grade taking civics, and 7th and 8th graders taking Algebra Honors and Geometry. Grades should be posted in Portal by June 13th. A letter is going home Monday to the students involved. Summer school begins June 9th. Letters were mailed home. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.

Looking ahead to next year: Parents of 6th graders moving on to 7th will need their shots updated. Please contact your doctor over the summer. As soon as you have the necessary shots, please bring in the record.

Please continue to save your box tops for education. They were used to buy things for our ever growing Chief Change store.

There are to be No Backpacks this coming week. Children may bring paper and a pen or pencil.

Allow me to take this time to thank all of you for a terrific year. I wish our 8th graders the best of luck as they venture off to high school.
