  • Character Day

    Posted by JG at 9/18/2016

    September 22nd is Character Day, but what does that mean? Character Day, according to its host site Let It Ripple, "Character Day is a free annual day and global initiative where groups around the world screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, ...dive into free printed discussion materials, and join an online global conversation around the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness) -- all rooted in evidence-based research." 

    Old Mill School will participate in this third annual character day. If you would like to prepare for the day at home, take a look at some of these great shorts reccommended by Let It Ripple:

    The Science of Character

    Class Dojo Big Ideas (Growth Mindset Series)

    Gratitide Revealed


    In addition to watching movies about character, there are plenty of resources to encourage discussion around the topic of character. Check those out here.


    We can't wait to participate in the event this Thursday, and we hope your family can connect to the day at home as well.

  • Welcome Back Assembly

    Posted by JG at 8/30/2016

    Grades K-5 got together last Friday to welcome back the returning students, and also welcome students who are new to our school. We invited new students up to the stage where buddies from their class introduced them to our whole school. We were also pleased to welcome our new teachers, Ms. Pabian (5th), Ms. Brundige (PE), and Ms. Kaye (K).

    Finally, we welcomed the newest member of our playgroud- the turf! We held a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and watched a few parents take on Mr. Deppong and Ms. Riley in a mini-soccer match. What a sight! 

    It's great to be back at Old Mill!


    Our whole school!

    The whole school is ready to learn!

    Welcome new students! We're so glad you're here!
