Academy Days

April 26 - 27

Drama Presentation

April 27

It probably happens a lot, people walking through life with talents and gifts God has given that lay hidden, unused, and unknown. In an individual who feels they have few or no special abilities, God invariably sees potential that lies beyond anything our mind's eye could ever envision. Cameron S., a senior at Ozark, wrote and directed the play that was performed over Academy Days weekend. Although not the point of his play, the incredible talent Cameron has shown as an actor, director, and writer in this play and throughout his years at Ozark, gives us a glimpse of God's vision for each of us. Digital images are available to download at Shutterfly.

Gymnastics Tour and Drama

April 17

We've all seen that smile before, the one that almost reaches from ear to ear. He was probably ten or twelve years old and I saw him standing over against the back wall of the gymnasium. It wasn't just the smile that caught my eye, but the excitement in his voice as he informed anyone who was listening that he was going to be a gymnast. Ozark's Aerialaires Gymnastics team performed on Wednesday for elementary students in Tulsa and Ketchum, Oklahoma. It's no wonder that young man wanted to be a gymnast after watching Ozark's students perform. From doing a flip off the shoulders of a teammate who also stood on the shoulders of another teammate, to team members flying 20 or 30 feet in the air, Ozark's gymnastics program is awe inspiring to watch. A peek into their performances, along with Ozark's drama class who also performed in Tulsa, is available via the link below.

Varsity Soccer vs. Lifeway

April 16

The Lifeway Christian Warriors scored first, but then Ozark's varsity soccer team scored three unanswered points to win their first game of the year by a score of 3 to 1. Peter K., Danny C., and Trey G. scored the three game winning goals but all of the members of Ozark's soccer team played a great game.

Dorm Daughter Reveal

December 2

"Sockin' around the Christmas tree" was the theme of the December 2nd Dorm Daughter reveal party. During the fall semester ladies from area churches "adopt" a daughter from Irvin Hall. The moms send gifts, notes, and encouragement throughout the semester. The reveal party is where they finally meet. This year the girls from Irvin Hall arrived at the party wearing socks that matched or coordinated with their dorm mom's socks. One dorm mom and daughter wore Santa socks. Another mom wore Nutcracker socks and her dorm daughter wore socks with just the nuts. Thank you to all the moms that participated in this program and helped make dorm life a little bit more like home. Digital images are available to download at Shutterfly.
