From Pre-calculus to World History, Tuesday's award assembly recognized outstanding students from each class. Wednesday's assembly had some academic awards as well as various other awards for excellence. The awards included things like the cleanest room in the girl's dorm (Rachel G.). Luke T. was awarded the most helpful guy in the boy's dorm. There were medals made by Mr. Harris for the winners of Monday's Kubb tournament. There were gummy snacks for the winner's of Monday's crawdad catching tournament and music awards for the first chair in string ensemble and bells. Our students have done a great job this year. We are proud of them not only for what they have accomplished but for the choices they are making that's building a character for heaven.

Sabbath Worship with George Dennehy

May 1, 2021

We felt so blessed that George Dennehy and his wife, Amanda, were able to come to our campus this weekend. Mr. Dennehy was the guest speaker for Friday evening vespers, for church, and while Ozark's girls were at the Sutherland's barn for the "Girl's Tea," Mr. Dennehy joined Ozark's boys on the cafeteria patio. His worship talks are archived on Facebook live. You can also follow him online at #thatarmlessguy. Sabbath afternoon cafeteria patio photos - Photo Credit: Donald U. and CJ F. (Class of 2022).

Girl's Tea

May 1, 2021

This year the Girl's Tea was held at the Sutherland's barn on Sabbath afternoon and the theme for the tea was "What kind of shoe are you?" While speaking to the girls Angel Pfeiffer used the characteristics of certain shoes to represent the different character traits of a friend. The girl's were encouraged to be the kind of friend Jonathan was to David in the Old Testament. The kind that is loyal, dependable, and comfortable and not the kind of shoe that is beautiful on the outside but starts to hurt after only a little while of walking.

This Week Around Campus

April 29, 2021

This week, Kelli Caldwell, a radio announcer and host from the Scott and Kelli Show on Klove radio, was here via Zoom to talk with Ozark students about careers in communications. We really appreciated Kelli taking the time to talk with our students and to answer their questions during our special Career Day Assembly on Monday. Also this week we take a peek inside the class "Topics in Architecture" taught by Mr. Kobliska and Mr. Harris. Students are currently studying structure relating to robotics. Flag ball is also taking place this week and we take a peek into Tuesday night's flag ball game.


International Supper

April 25, 2021

OAA's Student Association held a new event this year called "International Supper." There were sixteen or seventeen booths circling the perimeter of the cafeteria from a variety of countries such as Morocco, Nigeria, Vietnam, and Singapore. Food was served to students and staff from the different countries represented by the booths. Many of the booths were done entirely by OAA students. The food was amazing and the students had such a great time we hope this will be an event that will be repeated through the years.
