We will have our first practice of the season on Tuesday, September 27. Students should report to Mrs. Burdett’s room A-18.
Scholars Bowl Dues are $30. Checks may be made payable to OMMS. This helps pay for the competition tests as well as our Team T-shirts.
Parents are asked to drive their child to the local tournaments. Occasionally, you may need to drive other children as well if their parent can not. Please complete the Volunteer driver form, if you feel like you will be able to help drive the team to our competitions.
You may also want to print the calendar for this year’s practices and tournaments and make sure your Tuesday afternoons are free.
Scholars Bowl tryouts will be held Wednesday September 14th after school in the media center. Parents should pick up their children in front of the school at 3:30.
The sixth grade team will practice and compete on Tuesday afternoons.
Practices will end at 4:30.
There will be no Scholars Bowl practice this afternoon due to Mrs. Burdett’s absence.
We will practice on Monday and will also have a Competition at Helena on Tuesday, November 17th. Please plan on meeting your child in the lobby of our school at 2:45 to drive them to Helena.
We have an away match with Simmons on Tuesday. October 13. The address is 1575 Patton Chapel Road, Hoover, AL 35226.
The kids have noticed during our practice rounds that they need to study major artists and their works as well as countries and their capitals.
Fabulous win in our first match with Pizitz. The team represented OMMS well with their knowledge, spirit and behavior. Way to go!
We are so excited about our first match with Pizitz. It will be a great learning experience to see how we do under the pressure of time keepers and rules!
The address for Pizitz Middle school is 2020 Pizitz Drive, Vestavia Hills, AL 35216.
I apologize for ordering Mediums and Larges instead of Small and Medium. I actually thought it was a Printer error, but it was my mistake when I looked back at the email. Please forgive me for the error.
Just heard that Simmons will have a Sixth Grade team so we will travel to Simmons for that match on October 13th.
We had a wonderful first practice today. I am looking forward to working with these wonderful students this year. Please make sure you have returned the acceptance letter and $25 donation.
Scholars Bowl 2015-2016
The Simmons tournament is a question at this time because they were unable to attend the planning meeting and we are not certain if they will have a 6th grade team. 7th and 8th grade will have 8 tournaments, but 6th grade will only have 3 or 4. We will spend the rest of our days practicing.
If you are unable to attend practice, please drop me a quick email to let me know.
Congratulations to the Sixth Grade Scholars Bowl team who took 3rd place at the Shelby County Tournament! Individual recognition goes to Roshni Datta and Aidan Dokland who tied for OMMS top scorer. Thank you for a wonderful season. Good luck next year!
County Competition Information
It has been an exciting time getting to know these kids. I am looking forward to Monday’s competition. Please let me know if you have any questions. If not, I will see you in the Auditorium on Monday by 8:00am!
