We’re back!

Well, sort of.

School is back in session, but our cast for this year’s masterpiece is ever so slightly different. Of our currently enrolled students about half are new to ODS, but 5 days in it’s hard to tell as everyone settles into the year.

Our first day of school last Wednesday culminated in the team activity known as the Marshmallow challenge.

The goal: Teams of 4 or 5 set out to make the tallest standing structure that has a marshmallow on top.

The materials:

  • 20 sticks of spaghetti
  • 1 yard of string
  • 1 yard of tape
  • 1 (slightly stale in our case) marshmallow

Enjoy the photos to see the creations they came up with. Marshmallow Challenge Marshmallow Challenge3 Marshmallow Challenge2 Marshmallow Challenge4


Additionally, here are 3 of the 5 new AmeriCorps who will be working with the school this year, Dan, Katelyn and Sara.  We are excited to see what the year will bring!
