Dear Overlook Families!
 
January certainly went out with a bang! Incredible four snow days in a row!!! We hope everyone affected by the power outages and damage from fallen tress was able to return to normalcy.
 
A highlight last month was our food drive for local food pantries in Ashburnham and Westminster. Students and staff brought in over 1300 items for the drive. Students were rewarded for their efforts with a school-wide pajama day. The student council efforts did not go unnoticed. We are so proud of all the hard work of the council and Mrs. Duncan and Mrs. Shattuck for spearheading this community benefit.
 
The OMS Drama club put on the lovely production of Alice in Wonderland. We are so proud of all the hard work from all the students involved in the play from the actors to those working behind the scenes. Ms. Daigle and Ms. Normand are owed some kudos for being great advisors. Did you know that Ms. Normand made some of the fantastic costumes too? Amazing. Check out our Instagram for some snapshots of all our well-costumed actors!
 
The dodge ball tournament was also a great team-building activity where many students had the opportunity to incorporate their cooperative and leadership skills whether it be organizing the tournament as an 8th grade team to organizing an individual team and team's strategy. We thank Mrs. Cormier and Mr. Theriault for supporting the student-led school activity that involved so many students.
 
Keep warm and have a fantastic February!
 
Kristina Bogosh and Kathryn Miville
