Homecoming 2016 Details

Homecoming 2016 isn't too far away! Float decorating has already begun and the week gets underway on October 3rd. Look for dress-up days from your building principal's newsletter. (A few schools are listed below.)

Connected to the Cause

Before the football players go head to head on the field Friday, the Otsego and Three Rivers crowd will pause to recognize the impact of cancer of our families and our community for the Purple Community Event. Leading the ceremony will be former WKZO radio host and now producer and host of WWMT/CW7’s Lori Moore show, Lori Moore.

Cancer Comrades

Ray Bomeli is from Bangor originally, but Otsego is home. He taught math at Otsego High School for 37 years, coached baseball and football and was a referee for high school and college girls basketball for 38 years.

Pen Pals

Elementary students hit the ground running when it comes to writing this new school year. Students have a writing journal where they practice the skills of good sentence and paragraph structure, punctuation and adding in details.

OMS Force

Monday afternoon, students cheered on their fellow Jedis and dressed up teachers as droids in a Star Wars themed kick-off assembly for their annual Moovin’ for Moolah fundraiser. The money raised purchases new items for the school. Past items have been new workout equipment for PE, chromebooks and kindles and TVs for the cafeteria.

Gift of Knowledge

Many kids know Gene the Pumpkin Man from getting pumpkins from his farm in Kalamazoo in the fall. But today, they learned a little more about him and the organization that he not only represents, but that gives 3rd graders in Otsego and Plainwell a great gift – a dictionary.
