English Composition Field Trip

November 16, 2021

The dual credit Freshman Composition class spent Tuesday in the Greenwood District learning about the Tulsa Race Massacre. They started the day at the John Hope Franklin Restoration Park with Dr. Dewayne Dickens, Director, Culturally Responsive Practices for Tulsa Community College, who challenged them to ask what is the one thing [the students] needed to learn from this day. From there the student walked through the Greenwood Rising Museum where they learned the story of the Tulsa Race Massacre from the events that led up to it, the massacre itself, and the rebuilding of the community. The students also visited the Pathway to Hope, the Mabel B. Little House, and the Greenwood Cultural Center all in preparation for their final research essay for the class.

Championship Floor Hockey

November 13, 2021

Ozark's championship floor hockey games were on Saturday night. The "Screaming Gophers" played the "Buckhorn Unicorns" in the final game of the evening with the Screaming Gophers taking the first place spot and becoming winners of custom T-shirt's from the Student Association (designed by Hannah H. from the Class of 2022). There wasn't an award for the most team spirit but if there was that probably would have had to go to the "Balistic Bananas" with their banana costumes, banana sword, and ba-na-na chants.

Friday Evening Vespers

October 29, 2021

The edges were tattered from its years sent subject to the elements. Its colors were faded and its luster gone. As Ozark students sat around the campfire on Friday evening, Benton Robinson, from the U.S. Navy, held a special flag retirement ceremony to retire a United States flag. As each individual stripe was cut from the flag and dropped into the fire, he spoke of its special meaning. At the end, the final blue piece containing the white stars, was also retired into the flames. It was the start to a special vespers where Mr. Robinson spoke of his experience as a Christian in the U.S. Navy. After vespers, students were able to make smores, drink hot chocolate, and just have fun being with their friends.

Club Campouts

October 8 & 9, 2021

Ozark's Boy's and Girl's Club Campouts are a time for students to bond with one another and to develop a closer walk with God. On Friday afternoon around 3 p.m. Ozark's boys loaded the bus and headed to Camp Siloam. Ozark's girls loaded a different bus and went to New Life Ranch. The girls stayed in cabins and the boys set up camping spots in tents and hammocks. The theme for the weekend in the boy's camp was the second coming of Christ. With the boys sitting around the campfire on Friday night, Pastor Rick Mercer spoke on Matthew 24 and the fulfilling signs of Christ's second coming. In the girl's camp, the theme for the weekend was the fruits of the Spirit. If you had slipped in the back door of the Chapel during the girl's Sabbath school and church service you would have heard Gina Webb, Ozark's nurse practitioner, leading out in an interactive lesson on finding peace in the midst of the storm.
