Ozark Adventist Academy's annual Christmas concert was on December 11th. The concert was live-streamed and is now archived and available to view on Facebook.
This week around campus Mr. Krueger's Physics class was down on the ball field launching eggs and golf balls from trebuchets students made themselves. Anatomy and Physiology students were testing the motor skills of 3 to 5 year olds, and OAA students helped provide holiday music during the Gentry SDA Church's worship service on Sabbath.
This year the Christmas banquet was at King Pins in Siloam Springs. There was bowling, glow in the dark mini golf, a pool table, and arcade games. For supper, the Boys' Club provided pizza, ice cream and cookies. There were a lot of laughs, a lot of smiles, and there was a lot of fun.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas on our campus this week.
Each year each Ozark class makes a flag based on a verse from scripture. Right before Thanksgiving break class representatives revealed this year's class flags.

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.

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.
