Morning Announcements for May 25, 2018http://oss.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/291Morning Announcements for May 25, 2018 <p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">The Live to Dance Conference is<strong> this</strong> Monday May 28th </span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">We are leaving OSS at 7 am (note time change) and meeting with Bear Creek to head to Toronto. Bring dance clothes, water bottle, lunch money. We will return to OSS around 6 pm. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">Permission forms and money due to MacMillan TODAY. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">Runners for Track, there will be practice today for qualifiers. </span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">We also need to confirm your events and talk about transportation.</span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">The Junior Boys Rugby team played their last game of the regular season against the top team in the league yesterday. Despite the heat and being going down 19-0 halfway through the second half, the Nighthawks dug deep and fought back with two hard earned tries to make the score 19-12.  The boys pressed to the final whistle and ultimately ran out of time. They should be congratulated on playing their best game of the season and earning themselves a fourth place finish in the league. Playoffs are next week with the boys set to play Banting in the quarterfinals.  Good luck Nighthawks!</span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">The girl’s rugby team played a tough and determined team from Banting in the quarterfinals yesterday.  The Nighthawks rucked the ball with intensity and carried the play for much of the game. The girls held the lead into the second half and it was only a couple of unfortunate plays that prevented the Nighthawks from putting away their opponent. Banting managed to claw back into the game and tie the score. The OSS girls responded by pressing for the winning try right to the last whistle, and just ran out of time and space. The game was decided in the worst possible fashion by going directly to kicks for post. Mackenzie Chin carried the weight of her team on her shoulders, but a lucky kick by the opposing team proved to be the difference.  Heads up girls, your coaches are proud of you and you showed what it means to play with heart and never give up.  Congratulations on a great season!</span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">From the Music Department:</span></p><p><span style="font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;color:black;">Thank you to all our music students who performed in our concert last night.
