Superintendent's Update for May 5th

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    Osage students are ending this year strong. The national news seems intent on delivering a narrative that doesn’t begin to tell the story that has been our shared experience locally.  And at the end of the day, that is ok. They can get it wrong out there. Because here in mid-Missouri, our students are living a better story. This was a collective effort:   OUR STAFF worked endlessly, and OUR COMMUNITY supported tirelessly to ensure that OUR STUDENTS did not have their schools closed, their seasons canceled, or their rites of… read more Read More >>

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    As you may know, for the past five years our district has had a “word” of the year: HOPE (16-17), STRENGTH (17-18), GRATITUDE (18-19), SUCCESS (19-20), and OPPORTUNITY (20-21). These words have typically just somehow evolved out of the previous year. The annual word gives us a theme that allows us to connect to the past while resetting to the new academic year to come. It is also a unifying factor among the different grade levels throughout our district.   This spring a group of junior students stepped up to take a leadership role… read more Read More >>

Superintendent's Update for March 31st

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    We found out last week that our student, senior Grace Martin, was accepted into the US Naval Academy located in Annapolis, Maryland. Grace was chosen over thousands of other applicants. The USNA is a highly selective service academy. Many apply; few are chosen.    In a meeting with district leadership today, Grace said that there were simply too many people to thank for their support and that Osage provides an environment that fosters the opportunities needed to be prepared for this type of exceptional achievement. A few… read more Read More >>
