Fall Hang Out

Ockerman Hangouts launch this month! Hangouts is the new name for what was previously school dances. The name change is to encourage students to come and hang out with school friends with no added pressure. There is an awesome DJ playing popular music if students want to dance or to simply be the soundtrack of their night as they engage in fun activities, eat theme items from the concessions, and snap pictures with their friends. This month's Hangout theme is Fall Nights! Friday, October 26th 7 PM - 9 PM. Complete with pumpkin spice lattes, s'mores bar and more! And door prizes! Only $5 per student plus whatever they spend on concessions. Come early at 6 PM for the Pre Hangout. There will be a cool presentation on anti-bullying and the impact of labeling others. If parents want to volunteer, there is a Sign Up Genius on our Facebook page, OMS PTSA. All volunteers must have completed background checks. Background checks can be coordinated through the school office and cost $10.

Twenty-three students from the Falcon's team participated in a Fishbowl Science activity through Northern Kentucky University's CINSAM program.  Middle school teachers from Northern Kentucky observed the hands-on lesson, which directly related to the Next Generation Science Standards.  Students were given a variety of unknown solids and liquids with the task of finding what specific combination would make the best hand warmer.  This activity was a relevant review of concepts from a previous unit of study in their 7th grade Science class, and one they thoroughly enjoyed.

Boone County Schools Statement on Copy-Cat Threats logo

Boone County Schools is one of many school districts across the country that is being subjected to copy- cat threats of the school tragedy in Florida.  We are working with local authorities as they investigate a recent rash of rumors and threats on our campuses.  Student suspects in each of the cases were immediately identified and apprehended.  They were charged by local authorities and disciplined by their schools.   In each case a thorough investigation was conducted by the school district and authorities.  No student or staff member was ever in danger. Confidentiality laws prevent Boone County Schools from talking about the persons involved or the specifics of the incidents. Boone County Schools will continue to remain on alert, following our safety protocols and working with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and Florence Police as future issues arise.
