Traditional Memorial Day assembly hosted by Oak View Middle School

Oak View assembly(05/24/2024) On the morning of Friday, May 24, students at Oak View Middle School (OVMS) gathered in the cafetorium for its annual Memorial Day assembly. For 28 years, OVMS has traditionally hosted an assembly that includes student musical performances by the band, orchestra and choir, patriotic readings and a special message from a guest speaker.

“The purpose of our time together is to provide a brief history of why we celebrate Memorial Day, and through shared readings, musical selection and a shared message, honor and remember those who sacrifice so much for the freedom that we enjoy today,” said principal Gary Lundeen.

Eighth-graders gather to watch the event in person and the 45-minute assembly is live streamed by QCTV into all sixth- and seventh-grade classrooms.
