OGMS PARTICIPATES IN NATIONAL READATHON
The National Book Foundation sponsored a first National Readathon Day on January 24, 2015. The purpose was two-fold: to  emphasize the importance of leisure reading and to raise money for the foundation, which promotes literacy and gets books into the hands of needy and underprivileged children across America.  They asked bookstores, libraries, and schools across the country to host "reading parties" from 12:00-4:00 PM and invite people to make #timetoread.
Oak Grove Middle School was the only Mississippi site to sign up for the Readathon. Approximately 20 middle school students, 3 elementary students and 3 teachers gathered at the library to read, snack and listen to music. Everyone who attended agreed it was a great time. We are looking to participate in next year's event and hope that other places in Mississippi will join us to promote pleasure reading and literacy all in the name of a good cause.
 
REAL WORLD MATH 
Mr. Butler recently set up his classroom like a Wal-Mart and had items from all over campus priced and labelled. Each "aisle" had discounts that students had to apply to specific priced items. Students worked together to "shop", apply discounts to each item, apply sales tax, and determine the final total of their items.

IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE POLICY LEGISLATION:
The Mississippi Legislature passed a law (HB1530) in the past legislative session which requires all Mississippi public school students to be present for 63% of the day to be counted present for that day. This law took effect July 1, 2013.  This is 63% of the instructional day which means that it does not count lunch, breaks, etc...At OGMS, our school day begins at 8:25; therefore, a student must be present until 2:05 each school day to meet the 63% requirement
