Congratulations to our Odyssey of the Mind Team!

We want to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to our Odyssey of the Mind team! These 4th and 5th graders traveled to Iowa State University this week with their amazing coaches, Ms. Lundy, Ms. Awad, and Mrs. DaCorsi to compete against 50 other teams from around the world for the World's Competition. Our team came in 3rd place out of 50 which is incredible. We are extremely proud of all the teams and parent coaches who participated this year as they demonstrated their creativity, hard work, and teamwork. CONGRATULATIONS! 

What is OOTM?
Odyssey of the Mind (OM™) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem – that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives. OM brings the classroom to life as students apply what they learn and combine it with their interests and passions to solve our unique open-ended problems. OM also emphasizes teamwork, budgeting, time management, public speaking, and so much more. This international program is designed to help students at all learning levels grow as individual learners, grow as team members, and to reach their full potential.
