    Welcome to the Okanogan Middle School Webpage,

    It doesn't seem possible that we're already half way through the school year but we are!  January 26th marked the end of the 1st Semester and the beginning of the 2nd.  All students with semester electives changed classes and there was some re-shuffling of some core classes to try and even out some class sizes.  (A few more changes are still being worked on)  

    Drama is conducting their annual performance this week with a dinner theater.  "Death by Dessert" will be performed each night Wed. 1/31-Sat. 2/3 at 7:00.  $8 for dinner and performance or $5 for just the performance.   Girls Basketball and Wrestling are in full swing and will be winding down their seasons in the next few weeks.  Knowledge Bowl with Mr. Smith taking over this year will be starting practices in February with the first of 5 weekly meets beginning on February 28th.  (Knowledge Bowl is open to all students grades 6-8 to participate)

    Our game day reward on the Semester early release day was a great success again and the evening activity night, that was cancelled for weather will be re-scheduled at a later date.
