A community embracing students with dyslexia and language learning differences.

News

Science Fair activities began at 1:00 pm.  

The theme for this year’s science fair is ‘Critical Thinking and Problem Solving'. Lower school students will be paired with middle school students and work together as they visit each of the 4 different areas at the science fair, testing their knowledge, critical thinking skills, and problem solving skills. 

In the first area, students will need to solve science and technology based problems they encounter in an ‘Escape Room’. Each problem solved gets them one step closer to escaping but the problems get more and more complex as they go. 

For the next area, lower school students have been working in the classroom to build things that solve the problems they would face if they were to find themselves ‘Shipwrecked’ on an island. They will bring the things they have built to the science fair and put them to the test with the assistance of their middle school partners.

In the third area, students will participate in a ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ and work together to examine the evidence and use their knowledge of Forensic Science and deductive reasoning to find the perpetrator of a crime.

In the final area, students will participate in a ‘Build Puzzle Workshop’ and work together to build a number of logic puzzles that can be taken home to continue to challenge the kids and further develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

LeDerick Horne will be coordinating an alumni panel at 2:00 pm!

 

Dr. Brad Piergrossi and Dr. Michael Bombardier will be joining us again to speak with parents about mindfulness for parents and children. 

  

May 20 - 22, The Odyssey School is excited to welcome back LeDerick Horne to work with our students! 

"Diagnosed with a learning disability in the 3rd grade, LeDerick Horne defies any and all labels. He’s a dynamic spoken-word poet. A tireless advocate for all people with disabilities. An inspiring motivational speaker. A bridge-builder between learners and leaders across the U.S. and around the word."  (from www.lederick.com)

On May 2 and 3, The Odyssey School's middle school Drama Club will be presenting Annie!    

 

Little Orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan; finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy. 

On March 13 and 14, musician Reggie Harris was here in residence to work with Odyssey students.  "A songwriter of great depth and passion, Reggie Harris writes from a personal sense of mission that merges a world wise point of view with a singularly hopeful stance that life, though often challenging, is filled with possibility and hope. His songs reveal thoughts about life and love and some of the deep aspects of the human experience and cover topics from his own personal journey to world issues and history."

Elizabeth Zunon, illustrator of many children's books, was at Odyssey as an Artist in Residence.  She will be leading the students in an art project using plastic bags, just like the women in the book she illustrated, which is based on a true story!

Capture the excitement of learning and see how what begins here at Odyssey, changes everything.
