The art class there taught by Jamie Merdzinski is preparing for the Souper bowl supper. Which is a fund raiser held to raise money for the homeless shelter. This supper will be held in the Oscoda High School commons area from 5-7pm on Feb. 28. They are hoping to raise 3,000 dollars to help the homeless this year.

COMPOST KIDS Chatter Begins!



Today we began introducing students to the ideas of  COMPOST KIDS at REMS.  Teams cooperate to read the t-shirts and create posters to tell us about the program.  This year, Compost Kids will be completely student led. Monday meetings will be held to explore the greenhouse, learn about our school yard and work together on environmental projects.
