"Be Brave; Be Kind; Work Hard; Be a Panther!"
Hello Panthers! We want to welcome all of you to a new school year!. For many of our students, it's a "Welcome Back!" and to others, it's an introduction to middle school and/or a new school. To all of you, it's a warm-welcome and introduction to reaffirm our commitment in providing all of our students with a successful and positive middle school experience.
Parent involvement plays a large measure in our school's reputation and success. We need your cooperation, understanding, and involvement to make this year a profitable and satisfying experience for your child. OBMS always has, and will continue to stress academic excellence. This is something that we will not compromise or change. We want our students, staff and school to be the best they can be.
As we start a new school year, encourage your children to believe in their own abilities; encourage them to work hard and do what's right; talk about the importance of effort and attitude towards success; encourage them to laugh and not take themselves too seriously. Together, we'll teach them to weather adversity – that no challenge is impossible, no problem so overwhelming, and no mistake final.
OBMS takes pride in a dedicated, knowledgeable, and caring faculty and staff. We welcome your concerns and value the partnership formed between the home and school. These are important and formative years for your child and it's truly a privilege to work with these young men and women (your children) to make them realize and fulfill their potential – to become the best they can be.
If there is anything we can do to help your child, please do not hesitate to contact us. The unvoiced problem cannot be resolved, as the missed opportunity rarely offers itself again. Our goal remains to provide the possible education for each student by doing whatever it takes.
Thanks for all you do! It's going to be a great year!
Matt Krajewski, Principal
