On Saturday, March 4, 2017, two teams from Forest Oak competed at the regional Odyssey of the Mind tournament at Dickinson High School. These 14 students have been working on a ‘Long Term Problem” since November that required them to give a performance with student-created sets, props, costumes, scripts, and much more! They relied on their problem-solving skills and teamwork in order to succeed. Students also competed in a ‘Spontaneous Event’ in which they were given a problem to solve with only a few minutes to prepare unique, creative answers. Every team did an amazing job!! Forest Oak’s 3rd-5th grade team earned 5th place overall for our region for “Problem #5: Superhero Cliffhanger.” The K-2 team had an amazing time and got lots of awesome compliments from the judges! Congratulations to all of the teams and a HUGE thank you to the parent coaches (Erika Parisan, Jeremy Driscoll, Trish Jacobs, Ashley Goff, Kelly McCollum) and Ms. Martha Eldreth for representing our school as a regional judge!
