OSS! The clothing swap will be happening this week on Tuesday and Thursday. A big thank you to everyone who donated. Anyone can come browse for a new piece of clothing at lunch in the foyer on Tuesday and Thursday!

Last week the OSS Music Department hosted the Sunshine City School Music Festival which was a regional festival affiliated with the Ontario Band Association and Musicfest Canada. Nearly 1000 students from all over Ontario participated over the course of three days. Our own OSS ensembles had a very strong showing, earning 2 silver, 1 high silver and 4 gold rankings. A special thank you goes to the many amazing student volunteers who made this event happen over three very long days. Your conduct was positive and professional and did not go unnoticed by the visiting directors. Congratulations to all of our fine OSS musicians, many of whom will be travelling to Nationals in May.

The Students For Change club would like to thank everyone who has donated to the Hygiene Drive in the front foyer. The items are being donated after school today to the Green Haven Women’s Shelter in Orillia. With that being said, could Students For Change members please come down to the front foyer to help bag the items during lunch. Thank you!

Congratulations to the OSS dance team on their outstanding performance at the KARV dance competition at the Orillia Opera House Friday. The team placed gold! Reminder of the lunch practice today.

We all have mental health, but oftentimes mental health can affect women differently.
47% of women are considered at high risk of developing mental health disorders.
25.7% of young women self-harm–this more than twice the rate of young men.
Young girls who have experienced trauma, abuse or physical violence are 3 to 4 times more likely to encounter depression.
And an alarming 80% of people with eating disorders are women.
Women’s mental and sexual health matters!
Visit the foyer at lunch today to learn more from our guests and vendors.
Communities are ultimately only as strong as the health of their women.
Remember that self love is also the best medicine.

Reminder that today at lunch, some members of Model UN will be meeting. If your nation is from the Asia/Oceana, Europe, or Middle Eastern regions, please attend today! Again, that's Asia/Oceana, Europe, or Middle East. Other regions will meet next Tuesday.

Thank you to the grads who submitted their quotes for the yearbook.

For those who missed this most recent deadline, there will be a Grad Quote Recovery form posted in your D2L classrooms today. IF your section is not already finished and sent to the publishers by the time you submit your quote then it will be added to your page.

Please note: submitting your quote doesn’t guarantee it will make it into the yearbook as some pages are complete, and if you sent an e-mail to Mr. Newman this week-end asking for another chance to submit your grad quote…this is it. Do not delay.

Have you ever dreamed of flying through the forest as the wind rushes over your face? Well then we'd like to invite you to our Introductory meeting for the OSS Mountain Bike team this year. Join us Thursday at the beginning of lunch in room 303. Check out our google classroom by scanning the QR codes on the posters around the school.
