Thank you to all those parents that helped make the holiday block party a success by providing food and/or helping set up, chaperone, and clean up from the party.

Wishing all of my students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May you all be able to enjoy time with families and friends and get some well deserved rest!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in 2016!

Semester Exam

With the end of the semester near, we started a week long semester review for the upcoming semester test.  Students will be given two days for the semester test (Monday and Tuesday, December 14-15).  As you can imagine, this test covers a lot of material and requires students to apply several concepts within one question.  I encourage all students to come get extra help in the mornings during Think Tank (7:15-7:40am).  They can also come ask quick questions during 7th period every day.

Our students have been working extremely hard the entire semester and we will do everything we can to help them be successful!!!

Speak-Up Survey

If you have not had the opportunity to complete the “Speak Up” survey, please follow the instructions on  the link to answer the questions(Speak-Up 2015 Call for Participation).  Let’s try to have as much participation as possible by the end of the month.  The school system also wants as many students, parents, and people who live in the community to complete the survey as well.  If you have an opportunity for you or your child to participate, the data would be helpful.

:-):-):-) TOYS FOR TOTS – WE DID IT!!!

Dear 7th Grade Red Team Parents,

 As you are aware, the students of Oak Mountain Middle School have been campaigning to raise over $20,000 for our annual Toys for Tots drive. There have been many students giving sacrificially donating their hard earned money, giving up Christmas presents of their own for money, asking for donations within the communities and at churches, doing extra chores at home and for family friends, hosting bake sales and making other crafts to sell to donate the proceeds, etc. to help us reach our goal. Even though there are other teams at the school who raised an extreme amount of money for this great cause, we are very proud that the 7th Grade Red team was able to raise a total of $2,556.98 surpassing of our team goal of $2,520, and the school surpassed our $20,000 goal in just two weeks. So, we want to extend our gratitude for all that you contributed as well as supporting the U.S. Marines as well as our Toys for Tots drive. We sincerely appreciate your generosity and let you know that we are thankful for you! We were able to celebrate our school’s successful fundraising efforts in a pep rally on Friday, December 11th


 Thank you so very much,

7th Grade Red Team teachers

TOYS FOR TOTS!!! Collecting Monday, November 9th – Friday, November 20th

Our annual Toys for Tots campaign is quickly approaching! The National Junior Honor society for OMMS is collecting money to purchase toys for families that would otherwise not have a Christmas. Last year, we were able to collect over $2,500, and our goal is to surpass our last year’s total! Please start collecting your change and dollars that  you wish to donate.

I will be the teacher collecting money for the 7th grade red team, and we will keep a total in each class. As there are a few students on our team that do not have me for math, please encourage them to come see me, so we can adopt them to a class so they can participate in the fun of sharing and giving as well! We will be collecting Monday, November 9th – Friday, November 20th, so please be ready to donate your spare dollars and change!

If you are wanting to collect within your community and would like more information, please take the attached letter with you! (TFT Community Letter 2015)

Ideas to raise money:

  • Bake sale
  • Ask family, friends, neighbors
  • Donate time to help with chores to earn money
  • Attend the Annual OMMS Toys for Tots Faculty Auburn v. Alabama match: Thursday, November 19th!

Can you Can? October 8-16th

Can You Can?  Phase I Can! Food Drive is Oct. 8-16 (Starts this Thursday!)

Please help in joining OMMS support Oak Mountain Missions and Manna Ministries by donating canned food and boxed non-perishable items. The items that we collect go to families in need in our area. We hope that you will help your students realize the impact that they can have by donating items for the purpose of helping someone who is less fortunate.

As we collect items in our homeroom classes (4th period for 6th and 7th grades, and 5th period for 8th grade), we keep a tally count in order to have friendly competition in order to help increase the participation throughout the school. The homeroom per grade level that collects the most cans wins a pizza party. However, keep in mind the purpose of this Canned Food Drive is the spirit of giving and service to the community. Yes, it is fun to be competitive; however, we want each homeroom to encourage integrity in their giving and donations.

In order to help facilitate ease of storage at OMM and Manna Ministries, please do not separate items from their original packaging.  Please also remember that collected items must have a valid expiration date.
