Art Museum Field Trip

Nearly 100 Odyssey students in Mrs. Reilly’s fine arts and Mrs Oakes's digital art classes visited the Vero Beach Museum of Art on Wednesday, November 29th. The main exhibition featured MC Escher, one of the world’s most famous graphic artists. A good time was had by all on a beautiful day and students left with a new appreciation of modern art.

Band Practice

The sounds of the season are filling the air!  Our talented band students are hard at work rehearsing for their upcoming holiday performances.

The Winter Concert will be on Dec 7th . Doors open at 5:45 and the concert starts at 6 pm in the Gym.

They will also be marching in the Palm Bay Parade on Dec 2nd @ 6pm on Malabar Rd - Palm Bay City Hall.

Their dedication and joy are palpable, and they can't wait to share the magic with you!

Math is Everywhere!

Studying math unlocks a vast array of benefits, both personal and professional. Students in Ms. Hamzeh's math classes did an outstanding job decorating hallways with posters and displays about the importance and relevance of Math. By encouraging students to embrace math and explore its many possibilities, we can help them develop into well-rounded individuals and future leaders. Kudos to all the students who worked on these displays for our hallway!
