Each year Ozark offers the opportunity for Juniors, in conjunction with their U.S. History class, to take a tour of historic sites on the east coast. Heritage Tour is often one of many Ozark students' favorite memories during their high school years. Plans for the 2018 Heritage Tour are now underway.
Undaunted by overcast skies and drizzly rain, Ozark students and staff headed to New Life Ranch on Sunday to enjoy canoeing, archery tag, swimming, ping pong, and many other games.

Air Raid! Students at Ozark know when Coach Gettys calls air raid during the Junk Scramble, the first entire class to lie on the floor with their heads covered wins the points. The Junk Scramble is so much fun to play and so much fun to watch. Each class is in a different corner of the gym. When coach Gettys calls for a specific item, if the class has this item, one runner for each class races to the center of the gym to grab their class's handkerchief. The first one there wins the points.

In the church service on August 18th Ozark recognized five individuals from the Gentry Church who have blessed Ozark Adventist Academy with their service. Benita Mendoza, Don and Irene Gilbert, John Uhrig, and Bonnie Pendergrass have made such an impact on our school that we wanted to thank them and encourage our students to emulate their dedication and service to others.
It started with love. Then Robert and Judy Fetters went on to speak about honor. The final message for this special SA weekend was on service. During the Friday night and early Sabbath morning services Mr. Fetters spoke with the boys and Mrs. Fetters spoke with the girls. The final message on service was for everyone at the Gentry SDA Church. The Student Association's theme for this school year is based on Romans 12:10-11 and it is "Love, Honor, Serve."

Registration for dorm students and any village students who had not registered was held on Sunday, August 12th. Following registration, students and staff enjoyed pizza, a get acquainted handshake, and watermelon on the cafeteria patio. We were also blessed with community and church volunteers who provided homemade cookies and desserts, drove golf carts, and helped our students move into the dormitories. Thank you to all who helped!

Words cannot express how much the Fisher family has meant to Ozark Adventist Academy. It was with heavy hearts that we learned of Doug Fisher's resignation as a staff member. He and his family left footprints that will forever leave imprints on our hearts. As Doug follows the Lord's leading in his life, he will continually be in our hearts and prayers.
With a huge void to fill but with the assurance that this is God's school, we began to pray. We feel blessed that the Lord has opened a way for Bridget Kern, an experienced math and physics teacher, to become part of the faculty at Ozark Adventist Academy. Mrs. Kern has taught at Monterey Bay Academy, Bass Memorial Academy, Portland Adventist Academy, and Marshalltown High School in Iowa. We want to welcome Bridget, her husband Mark, and their college-aged son and daughter to Ozark and to Gentry.
