Ozark Summer School Students on an EDventure

Over the past few weeks, have you seen Ozark Zoology students at the Finley River exploring? Or maybe you saw OHS students in the Personal Finance class comparing prices at Cash Saver. Or you could have seen students in the Leadership Through Writing class talking to residents and cleaning the courtyard at the nursing home.

That's because Summer School is in full swing and offers students the opportunity to participate in unique, hands-on activities.

While many students are getting out of the classroom, many others are exploring and taking adventures within the classroom.

At the Junior High School, students in the Science of the Southwest class researched rocks to write the book, "Pete's Journey," which is the tale of one rock's adventure through the Ozarks. Students then visited South Elementary to read their story to first graders in the Camping in the Ozarks class.

And speaking of the Camping in the Ozarks class, first-graders are learning what they need for a successful camping trip and even visited with an Eagle Scout.

At East Elementary, students in the Ozark Express class are putting their math skills to good use, cooking daily. They are learning how to double recipes, practicing measuring and learning the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon.

Students in the Nature Unleashed class at West Elementary are exploring the great outdoors, learning about Missouri’s ecosystems and all the living things found in them.

At North Elementary, students in the Art, Drama, Action class are performing weekly shows, such as “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” They are even making the set and props.

These are just a few of the many things students are doing in Summer School. We hope you are having a great Summer School EDventure!
