Good Morning staff and students  Welcome to Ovid-Elsie Middle School where we are inspiring life-long learners to achieve their full potential and excel in a changing world.  Today is Thursday, January 16th, 2020.  Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag …

This week’s Kindness Challenge is reminding us that:

  • Sometimes kindness isn’t in what you do, it’s in what you don’t.  Think twice before you act today. If it’s not kind, don’t do it!

  • The preliminary round of the Geo Bee is at 1:30 today in Mr. Latz’s room. 

  • The 8th-grade boys’ basketball team traveled to Mount Morris and came away with decisive wins for both the A and B team!  

  • The 7th-grade boys’ basketball team had a nice start to their season last night vs. Mt. Morris.  The B team came alive in the fourth quarter and pulled away to get a great team win by the score of 35-26.

The A team was down 18 points in the fourth quarter in their game against Mt. Morris.  But the boys never gave up and clawed all the way back and their game ended in a tie by the score of 63-63.  

Well done to all of the teams!
