March 15, 2019 O’Maley Family Focus


Dear Families,


If you haven’t already had the pleasure, I highly encourage you to come in to see the fabulous O’Maley production of Mary Poppins Jr. this weekend. Tickets for the Saturday 7 pm and Sunday 1 pm performances are still available and can be purchased online here. It’s a “Do Not Miss” for sure!


The Evening of Excellence is this Tuesday, March 19th from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  This annual event is a showcase of student learning. You will have the opportunity to view teacher-created displays from all subjects and grade levels. A short performance of a few Mary Poppins songs will be held at 6:15 pm, and the Big Band will play briefly at 6:45 pm. Throughout the evening, the Spring Scholastic Book Fair will be open in the Learning Commons. I am looking forward to experiencing this event for the first time myself, and I hope to see you there.


O’Maley Academy Spring Session Sign-ups are open! As always, there are a multitude of activities to try. Sign-ups are open until March 22nd and sessions begin on March 25th. Link here to come and join the after school fun!


March Madness

March 18-22 is March Madness week at O’Maley and promotes healthy competition among community members. Students earn points for enthusiastic participation, including attendance! Activities will be held throughout the day, and each day has a different theme for dress. Dodgeball will be held after school Thursday, and an academic bowl during the day on Friday. Students who prefer not to be on a team earn points by attending and participating as part of the cheering squad. Dress themes for the week are: Mon - Mismatch Day, Tues - Pajama Day, Wed - Formal Day, Thurs - Gloucester Day, Fri - Grade Colors Day. 8th grade = maroon, 7th = blue, 6th = yellow.  The week culminates with the Talent Show on Friday night 7:00-8:30 p.m. Thank you to SAILS council representatives for their anticipated work tallying points.


West Point Bridge Project

The Ralph Salvucci Online Bridge Competition sponsored by the Boston Society of Civil Engineers is now open. 7th and 8th grade students have experienced building a suspension bridge in our labs and can put that experience to use in this STEM competition. The software download is free. Link here for information about the project and to register.


Spring Scholastic Book Fair

Books will be on sale this week March 15-22.
