Ever wonder what O’Maley looks like during the day? Are you curious about what an Innovation school is? What’s is the STEM lab?

All those answers and more can be discovered during the O’Maley Innovation Middle School tours. Tours are planned for March 13th, April 10th and May 1st from 8 – 9 a.m.

The tour begins and ends in the O’Maley library with coffee and pastries with Principal Debra Lucey. Guidance counselors and students, will conduct the tours of selected classrooms, the O’Maley STEM suite, cafeteria and auditorium.

Local author Laura Harrington joined a group of Dirigo Hoiuse 7th grade students at O’Maley to read aloud from her recent novel ALICE BLISS (winner: Massachusetts Book Award in Fiction 2012). The reading was part of O’Maley Middle School’s celebration of World Read Aloud Day, a global initiative promoting action to recocnize every child’s right to read and write.  Throughout the day, classrooms found time and ways during their work to recognize the gift and power of accessing a safe education, books and technology.
World Read Aloud Day at O’Maley concluded with an energized full grade tribute to the power of reading and writing. Grade 6 students gathered to share parts of their own recently published books. The National Novel Reading Month project takes grade 6 students through the writing process, from generating ideas through publication of original work. This year, over 200 books were published by grade 6 students at O’Maley as part of their extended project work.
