May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Month! In 1992 Congress passed a resolution expanding the observance from a week to a month in 1992, which is timed to coincide with two important milestones in Asian American and Pacific Islander history: the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in the United States which was on May 7, 1843.

Vikings, don’t you deserve to be in a clean, safe space? We need to clean up after ourselves in order to make that happen- in the hallways, in the commons, in the bathrooms, outside the building, everywhere at Odle! If you notice students not taking care of their own responsibilities or if someone is intentionally leaving trash or causing damage, please tell them directly if you feel safe in doing so. If you don’t feel comfortable, please see Miss Gayle or another trusted staff member for support. Trashing our school is NOT cool!
Hello Odle students! Are there topics that you think people aren’t aware and you’d like to discus with others? Then world conversations club is just for you, Every Friday in room 215, Ms. Neal’s room!
Hey Vikings! The Spring Fling is tonight from 6-8 in the gym. If you decide to attend at the last minute, you can buy a ticket at the door for $10. All tickets include a snack and drink. Tickets are free for students on free and reduced lunch. Tickets are not refundable. At the dance, there will be an area to play board games and a DJ. You can also purchase a slice of pizza for $2. ASB is so excited to have a dance to celebrate 4th quarter. We are looking forward to the upcoming dance and want everyone to have the opportunity to attend. Having fun school events like a dance is a privilege that is open to all students. To be able to attend the dance, students must follow behavior expectations at school. Students who are unable to show that they can follow school expectations of being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe will lose their opportunity to participate and purchase a ticket. The following behaviors will prevent students from being able to attend the dance:
· 6 or more unexcused tardies
· Skipping a class
· A discipline referral to the assistant principals
This expectation is in place from April 21 until the afternoon of the dance. This event is for Odle students only.
