Ogilvie School's '13-'14 End-of-the-Year “Students of the Quarter”
 
The Student of the Quarter Award is a program designed by the faculty in order to give special recognition to those students at OHS who are doing exceptional jobs in their studies as well as their attitudes and activities.   A student is nominated and selected each quarter for the junior high and senior high divisions.  In addition to the recognition, the Greater Minnesota Credit Union, our sponsor, will be establishing a savings account in the student's name.
TD.JPGOur junior high student, Taylor Dobbins (shown at left with OHS Assistant Principal Sue Davis and GMCU representative Staci Norby),
was selected from the 7th – 9th grade level category.  Taylor is a 9th grader who is the daughter of Claude and Nancy Dobbins.  Some of the activities she is involved in include speech and Circle of Friends.  She is also involved in helping with activities at her Mom’s work, volunteering at Ogilvie Schools, Bake Sales, and fundraisers.  Taylor loves sharks and everything related to the sea.  She also enjoys hanging out with her friends, going to the movies, “redneck culture”, night swimming, and going to the mall.
Taylor’s favorite subject in school is Art because she loves to draw and it makes her imagination run wild.  She enjoys listening to music while thinking about what to draw.  She feels that school is important because “You learn stuff and sometimes get to do fun things.”    In the future, Taylor is considering becoming a marine biologist.
 
Our high school student, Samantha Olson, SO.JPGwas selected from the 10th – 12th grade level category.  Sam is a sophomore and is the daughter of Gene and Stacy Olson.  She is involved in Student Council, volleyball, basketball, softball, National Honor Society, and was in the school musical “Smile” this year.  She is a member of the True Vine Lutheran Church where she helps with Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and Operation Christmas Child.  She also helps with fundraising events for the Ogilvie Dollars for Scholars and the Ogilvie Youth Basketball Association.  Some of her interests include:  sports, reading, art, watching movies, and listening to music.  Sam’s favorite subject in school is Art because she likes working on the different projects and challenging herself.  She feels that school is important because, “the possibilities are endless. You’re not boxed in and there’s no limit to what you can learn, see, and experience”.   Her advice for someone who doesn’t like school is, “Stick with it because it will be worth it in the long run.  There’s so much out there in the world that you can do, but you need your education.”  Sam plans to join the Air Force and attend law school after graduation.
Congratulations to Taylor Dobbins and Samantha Olson for being selected as Ogilvie’s newest Students of the Quarter!

studentofqtr.PNG
(Pictured from left to right are:  Greater MN Credit Union representative Sheri Renner, 10th grade Alix Heins, 9th grader Jacob DeBoer, and OHS Assistant Principal Sue Davis.)
The Student of the Quarter Award is a program designed by the faculty in order to give special recognition to those students at OHS who are doing exceptional jobs in their studies as well as their attitudes and activities.   A student is nominated and selected each quarter for the junior high (7th-9th grade) and senior high (10th-12th grade) divisions.  In addition to the recognition, the Greater Minnesota Credit Union, our sponsor, will be establishing a savings account in the student's name.
 
Our junior high student, Jacob DeBoer, was selected from the 7th – 9th grade level category.  Jacob is a 9th grader who is the son of Gerry and Shanna DeBoer.  Some of his activities include:  football, basketball, and baseball.  He is also involved in attending CCD classes at St. Kathryn’s Church in Ogilvie and volunteers for Community Education programs at Ogilvie School.
Some of Jacob’s hobbies include: playing Xbox games, watching movies, and listening to music.  His pastimes include hanging out with his friends, playing sports, fishing, and hunting.
Jacob’s favorite subject in school is Physical Science because he gets to learn about many new things in our world.  He feels that school is important because, “it can prepare me for my future and lets me feel a sense of achievement when I work my hardest.”  If Jacob were to give advice to someone who doesn’t like school, he would say, “In the future, you will not regret your decision to go to school.  Education helps you do well in life.”  In the future, Jacob is considering joining the Air Force Academy to become an astronaut or engineer in the NASA Space Program.
Our high school student, Alix Heins, was selected from the 10th – 12th grade level category.  Alix, a sophomore, is the daughter of Brandon and Mary Heins.  She is involved in softball, FFA, Student Council, and NHS.  Some of her activities include Sunday School at St. Kathryn’s Church and volunteering at the Ogilvie Food Shelf.  Alix’s interests include:  reading, gardening, softball, photography, and being at the lake. 
Alix’s favorite subject in school is English because she loves to read and write.  She feels school is important because, “it teaches responsibility and helps shape our minds for the future”.   Her advice for someone who doesn’t like school is, “You should work your hardest because you need to look at the big picture.  Where do you want to be 10 years from now?”  Alix isn’t sure of her future plans, but her goal is to attend a four year university.  The location and major is undecided. 
Congratulations to Jacob DeBoer and Alix Heins for being selected as Ogilvie’s newest Students of the Quarter!  Also, a huge THANK YOU to our sponsor, the Greater Minnesota Credit Union.

On March 27th, Ogilvie FFA participated in FFA day at the Capitol. Six Ogilvie students joined the nearly 300 FFA members who visit with MN legislators each year to promote Ag. and Education policy and secure legislative support of the program. Ogilvie FFA had the amazing opportunity to tour the Capitol and select government buildings nearby. Members met with Senator Dave Brown to discuss Ag. policy and share personal experiences surrounding Ag. Ed and FFA. They also had the opportunity to view the Senate in session, as well as legislative committees. These students had a great time learning about the legislative process in MN and did very well representing Ogilvie! Members in attendance included: Maddie Hass, Alix Heins, Randi LaBeau, Shania Nahring, Hannah Stahnke, and Shalyn Steinbrecher.

Ogilvie 2nd Graders & Community Members Come Together to Help People in Africa
On Valentine’s Day the second grade classes had the opportunity to come together with their community members to do something special for the people of Africa!  Lewis Lake Covenant Church participates in an annual Bandage Rolling for Africa.  Strips of sheets are cut into 3 in. lengths, de-stringed, sewn together, rolled and then sent over-seas in order to provide much needed bandages for injured African citizens.  drost1.jpg
On February 14th, volunteers from Lewis Lake Church along with Mike and Jeni Sharratt from Mike’s Lawn Service came to teach second graders how this process works, so they could try it themselves!  All second graders had a fabulous time partaking in each step of the bandage rolling process!  It was also very rewarding to know how those bandages will be used to help people in need! drost2.jpg
The second grade teachers would like to give a big thank you to their community members (Lewis Lake Church and Mike’s Lawn Service) for making this day possible!

We Day participants recently hosted a Necessity Drive. This event was a service goal based on their experience from October 8, 2013 when thirty students attended ‘We Day Minnesota’. This day focused on giving back to your community and the world to make it a better place, but most of all to help those in need. They have taken the message that was delivered that day and made a commitment to act upon it! That commitment requires them to establish two obtainable service goals.
All of the items collected are being distributed right here in our Ogilvie community! Some of the items collected include toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, washcloths, shampoo, chap stick, and more.
