Onalaska Community Dinner to Highlight STEAM.
steam community dinnerOur annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) community dinner is now named STEAM. We have added art to the mix, since so much of what we do in art education ties right in with STEM concepts. HS Art Teacher Joe Steketee, and his students, will be displaying current Ony HS art. Middle school students are also welcome to join in the art demonstration. Our students are looking forward to telling the public what they are learning and the relevance it will have on their futures.

Dinner begins at 5:30pm on October 23, in the OEMS cafeteria. The Onalaska Alliance will be sponsoring the food. It will be another great opportunity for our schools to showcase the work that is being done around all things STEAM! Hope to see all of you there!

Ony Teacher Completes Marathon.
Onalaska Elementary 1st grade teacher, Amy Thayer, completed the Portland Marathon this past weekend. She finished the 26.2 mile trek in 5:24:19.

Finishing a marathon is a grueling task and an awesome life accomplishment which shows determination, planning and commitment. This is an excellent demonstration of the "Ony Way!"

Congratulations on completing the marathon, Amy!

"THANK YOU" to Para-Educators.
We want to recognize and thank our Para-educators! 

para educatorThe work that the Para's do is invaluable to our total program of educating students. We ask a lot of them, in the performance of their jobs. Some Para's work one-on-one with students and are the significant adult in the student lives because they spend the entire day working with those students. 

Paras are part of the larger education team, whose sole mission is to educate all students and give them the skills, confidence, and knowledge that will foster their continuing development. 

Keep up the great work. You are appreciated!

We Need SUBS!
  • All schools need substitute Para Educators.
  • We also need substitute bus drivers. Training class is available. 
Fill out a classified application, and submit it to the Onalaska District Office.
