WELCOME TO ODYSSEY SUMMER 2018!
We are looking forward to an amazing five weeks (4 weeks for Odyssey Seniors) with 130 incredible Odyssey High Scholars! Our Odyssey instructors have been working diligently on lessons, plans, and field trips we will enjoy this summer. All instructors took part in a full-day Saturday planning session during which we developed projects and themes for each class and each grade. Our scholars will experience project-based learning at its best and enjoy opportunities for experiential, authentic learning.
Our expectations for Odyssey scholars are very high. Because you are so amazing, we offer you this enriching, fun program every summer – free of charge – on this beautiful campus. But we all know, nothing comes for free; YOU have to do your part.
We DO NOT TOLERATE running/screaming inside buildings, foul language, fighting, damage to school property, non-instructional usage of cell phones in class, disrespect to any adult on campus, or any inappropriate attire (including revealing, cut-out, form-fitting tops, and bottom, clothing with offensive language or images). If any student’s attire is questionable, the director will make a decision, and the student will be expected to comply. Also, you must participate fully and do your classwork every single day.
We want you to return to Odyssey every summer. However, students who do not share this vision, choose to misbehave, and, or disregard the expectations, will not be invited to return next year. Or, they may be dismissed and not allowed to complete the summer.
In addition, the following actions will result in immediate dismissal from Odyssey:
- intentional destruction of school property or theft
- fighting, repetitive bullying/harassing fellow students
- missing more than three days (excused or unexcused) July 4 is the only holiday.
With so much fun ahead, we know you don’t want to miss any part of Odyssey. You are here for a reason! You were selected because of how special and important you are. Let’s celebrate that every day in class and throughout the community!
