YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE AWARD - 8/27/2021 Congratulations to OVMS Cafeteria Unit Leader Crystal Fishel! S-OCS Food Service Coordinator Beth Ziegenhorn provided the following statement as Crystal received the "You Made A Difference" Award: This staff member of mine is a breath of fresh air. Even after experiencing a tremendous loss in her family right before school began in 2020, she still managed to run her kitchen with the same smile and energy as she carried before. When I reached out to Olivia, the former food service director, she said, "This staff member always greets every student with a smile and goes above and beyond for her school. You can always find her willing to lend a hand to her fellow co-workers and helping the custodians or other unit leaders in the district. She is the true definition of a team player." You will often find her in the kitchen listening to a groovy playlist--singing and dancing along. Her energy is contagious and her heart and dedication to her job is unwavering.
McCormick's Creek Elementary School students Lucas and Austin Minor led the Pledge of Allegiance during last night's School Board meeting at OVMS. Following the Pledge, Superintendent Cline thanked the two brothers by presenting them each with a cookie and certificate. Great job, boys!
