Last week, students in Ms. Bazzy's English IV class presented their senior projects.

In addition to an oral presentation, students were required to submit a 10-page research paper. The topics chosen this year ranged from rocket fuel performance to character animation (based on the first chapter of Ezekiel). Here is a quick glimpse into six senior projects.

Cross Training

May 7

Once each year while the girls are at the Sutherland's barn for a tea party, Ozark Adventist Academy boys participate in a "Cross Training" event. It is usually an activity with a spritual lesson and supper. This year students had the opportunity to slide down a zipline and play outdoor games at Camp Acacia. After the activity, Benton Robinson from the U.S. Navy spoke with the boys. Supper was hot dogs on the patio.

Wednesday's Flood

May 4

On Wednesday, May 4, we had problems with one of our storm drains and water started flooding campus a little after 1p.m. Water was seeping into the business office, the girl's dorm, the cafeteria eating area, and the Industrial Arts building. Mr. Mason said there was about 9 inches of water in the IA building. Mr. Upson and Mr. Mason watched as a trash can floated away from them in the current. The storm drain was fixed and the water drained away from campus. By supper the water had been removed, the girl's dorm lobby was dry, students were eating in the cafeteria, the water had all been pushed out of the business office, and the large commercial fans were running to dry out the wet carpet. (Mr. Fetters was able to move the red car in the video to higher ground.) Thank you Amber R. (Class of 2022) for sharing video.

Senior Talent Program

Ozark's Seniors did a great job during Saturday night's talent program!

We want to thank all those who came to support our students and those who donated their time and resources to make it such a special night for OAA's Senior Class of 2022.
