The Owl Way formerly known as Character Counts, kicks off September with a Salute to our Community Helpers. This program promotes good character and kindness at all grade levels. The Owl Way implements monthly service initiatives to promote good character traits such as being kind, responsible, honest, fair and helping others. On occasion, this PTA program partners with other clubs such as the Ecology Club and the 5th Grade Service Learning Club, to carry out monthly projects with the help of students, parents and staff. The Owl Way fosters a positive learning environment and breeds a culture of kindness. OMS has a strong tradition of raising global-minded students and is committed to fostering a passion for service learning in tomorrow’s leaders.
