Teamwork is Everywhere at the OCM Olympics

Friday was the perfect day for the OCM Olympics.  It took place at both middle schools, Excelsior and Oak Ridge.

The Olweus Class Meeting (OCM) groups competed in a number of activities, from tug-of-war to cup stacking.

It was an afternoon of what Oak Ridge Teacher-Librarian Sue Kraus called “Good-natured fun.”

The event is designed to develop teamwork and collaboration skills among middle school students.

High school students from the support group, Teens Reaching Youth (TRY), had the chance to return to their respective middle schools to assist their former teachers and staff members. They also helped coordinate the event activities, along with a group of faithful Linn-Mar Volunteers!

Thanks to everyone who made the OCM Olympics a huge success!
