Osceola Creek Middle School’s New Multimedia/TV Production Program and the Osceola Creek Student Council are working hard to keep students and the community aware of school news.
September “Dads Take Your Children to School” was very successful. Fathers were greeted with sealed popcorn packages that read, “You’re the best pop in the world!” They also received a sticker for their shirt to alert everyone throughout their day that they had participated in the event.
October came in like a roaring lion full of rage from Hurricane Matthew, but the fierce lion spared Palm Beach County. Osceola Creek continues to seek ways to support neighboring countries that were hit much harder. Haiti and the Bahamas are receiving care packages from students and staff to aid them in meeting their basic living needs during this time.
So many are faced with breast cancer across the county, and Osceola Creek wanted to show support during the month of October. The campus was painted pink with balloons, and everyone wore pink just before the month ended. This was in an effort to let everyone know that although the month is ending, the dedication and support will continue throughout the year for those who continue to be diagnosed and fight daily.
The school’s National Junior Honor Society recognized Red Ribbon Week by having Bears wear red and take an oath to remain drug free, and the campus was decorated with large red ribbons to remind students to be drug free.
In November, Multimedia/TV Production classes learned to create Public Service Announcements (PSAs). One of the students was faced with the death of her father earlier this year from the Alpha 1 Genetic Disorder, which developed into emphysema that he battled since 2008. The Bears painted the campus purple on Thursday, Nov. 3 and during the pep rally acknowledged awareness the disorder, the student and her family, who were instrumental is making this awareness schoolwide.
Finally, the school held a yard sale Nov. 5 to raise funds for the drama department and its awesome performances.
