Cuteness overload!!! We have baby goats at the OVHS Goat Farm! Our Mama Doe Sunshine gave us a beautiful set of triplets over the weekend. Thirty Owen Valley FFA students worked at least one shift (2 hours) round the clock to be on hand to help with the delivery. Aren't they just absolutely adorable?

Last year, Patriot Manufacturing partnered with Jay Reid from Ivory Ella to give back to our local community. Ivory Ella donated over 700 t-shirts to Patriot Manufacturing with the goal of selling them and donating profits to local organizations. Insurance Services, Inc. is sponsoring a "Blessings Bag" Food Drive in memory of their dear friend and co-worker, Kirby Stogsdill. Patriot Manufacturing student business leaders were pleased to be able to donate $500.00 for their project. For more information on how to support Insurance Services, Inc.'s Blessing Bags Project, please see the flyers below.

Gosport Elementary Head Custodian Dale Brown (affectionately known as Mr. Dale), created a special presentation for the students in honor of the birth of the Marines Corps. Dale served cupcakes to all of the GES students and staff members and took time to answer questions following the celebration. ———————————— On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that "two Battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps.
Learning often extends outside of the school hours. This was the case this past week when some Patricksburg Elementary School students chose to stay after school to participate in a "noodle-making" class. Students learned to make their own dough and rolled/cut their own noodles. Special thanks to PES teacher Beth Nairn for leading this class.
Owen Valley Middle School was proud to host their special Veteran guests for recognition and lunch. Special thanks to OVMS members of Scout Troops 119 and 1119 for presenting the Flag Ceremony and to Thelma & Louise Catering for donating the food. Our OVMS students shared wonderful messages to our Veterans and cheered them on as they walked through the hallways.
OVHS was gifted two tickets to the Live2Lead Conference Simulcast in Martinsville on October 28 by Legacy Business Consultants. Kaitlin Padgett and Sadie Neff attended and learned from leadership gurus like John Maxwell and Patrick Lencioni. They learned valuable leadership skills, including how different generations can work together. What a great opportunity to increase leadership in our students!
