A glimpse into some of this week's practices for Saturday Night's full length play, Letters to Sala, and a look into Ms. Simmons choir practice.
Students in Ozark Adventist Academy's Drama and Stage Production classes put on the play "Letters to Sala" on Saturday night, February 1st, in the OAA Auditorium.
Sala Garncarz entered a Polish Labor Camp during World War II expecting to be there six weeks. Five years later she was liberated after spending time in seven different forced labor camps. She was able to receive and send letters but was not supposed to keep them. She kept those years a secret from her family for 50 years before revealing more than 350 letters she managed to hide during her time at the camps. This is her story and the story of the letters.

Gift bags filled the table. Finger foods, special desserts, and a hot chocolate bar stood waiting. During the fall semester ladies from area churches such as the Gentry SDA Church, Compass Fellowship, and Springtown "adopted" a daughter from Irvin Hall. The moms sent gifts, notes, and encouragement throughout the semester to help dorm life be a little bit more like home. The reveal party is where they finally met. This year's party was an "ugly sweater" party. Thank you to all the ladies that adopted daughters. Full resolution images are available to download free of charge from Shutterfly.

As the doors to the Sanctuary in the Gentry SDA Church opened this weekend, the sound of youthful voices, of strings, bells, brass, piano, and a harp echoed down the hallways.

Sabbath afternoon's Music Festival Concert was the culmination of Ozark's Music Festival which was held Dec. 4 - 7.Photo Gallery 1 - Images are available to download from Shutterfly.

Here is a glimpse of the class flag reveal, as well as the presentation of Ozark's monthly Skyhawk award presented to two students who are making a positive impact on Ozark's campus.

The bus probably wouldn't have made it down the last steep incline into Camp Yorktown Bay. So Ozark students attending the ARK-LA Teen Prayer Conference at CYB, near Hot Springs, Arkansas, grabbed their suitcases, sleeping bags, pillows, and even guitars and headed down the final hill into the camp. But if you were to ask the students who attended, not just from Ozark but from schools as far away as New Orleans and Jefferson, Texas, many of them would probably tell you it was a powerful weekend and well worth the time and effort expended to get there. Please join us in praying that the impressions made at the Conference will be indelibly etched on the student's hearts.

Tuesday night's supper of vege-chicken nuggets, hot fries, baked beans and veggies was so good there was a constant line for seconds in the cafeteria entry way. One of our students ate more than 30 nuggets! They were that good! Also this week, Jeff Villegas, Ministerial Director at the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference, spoke for Ozark's Week of Prayer. He was such a riveting speaker, we rarely even heard a whisper while he was speaking.

The clouds rolled in and the rain started to fall as Ozark students, staff, and their families left for Sunday's SA event at the Arvest Ballpark in Springdale. But by the time we arrived at the park, the rain had stopped and we were able to enjoy watching the Arkansas Naturals play the Tulsa Drillers. Between innings, multiple Ozark students participated in some of the promotional events on the baseball field. Full resolution images are available to download free of charge from Shutterfly.
