What’s New in the OMC Family: Finals Week!
English: Using March by John Lewis as a mentor text, students wrote narratives in the form of digital comic books. These narratives retold significant events in the civil rights history of the African-American, Chicano, Women’s and LGBTQ+ communities. Students also studied academic vocabulary using a variety of tools and prepared for their final assessment of the semester’s mastery standards.
AVID: In addition to participating in collaborative study groups to prepare for finals, AVID students created screencasts to share their infographic research data with their peers. They also had the opportunity to participate in the ongoing Oxnard College workshops offered by the Writing and Reading Center, which focused on strategies to prepare for final exams.
ASB: ASB had fun creating special holiday ornaments as the first class of Oxnard Middle College Students.
Math: In math, the students completed a project in math involving volume and polynomials.
Finals Week: Many of the Griffins participated in Oxnard College’s Finals Week fun, which included de-stressing with bubble wrap as well as other events in the library and around campus. The Oxnard College Dreamer’s Club walked the campus handing out free scantrons and treats to encourage success on final exams. The Oxnard College Be Yourself Club also spread holiday cheer in the library for AVID students studying hard in the study rooms! We wish all of the Griffins and the Condors good luck on final exams and a happy holiday season. We are looking forward to a successful Spring of 2019!
Counseling: This week Mrs. Sand held a meeting for parents to discuss the pathways offered at OMCHS. She discussed what the next 4 years will look like for students at the middle college. She also explained to parents the different degrees/pathways that Oxnard College offers: A.A./A.S./IGETC. For the parents that were unable to attend, Mrs. Sand has been meeting with them individually. This Friday, she will also meet with the AVID students to present on reading PSAT scores and how they can use College Board and Khan Academy to improve their scores.
