OM is an after school extra-curricular program at ICS that get kids into spontaneous and long-term problem-solving with a combination of tactile as well as intellectual solutions. It encourages critical and creative problem solving and teamwork.
There are 7 children maximum per team and teams must stay the same through the year. The program is entirely parent-run and involves a year-long commitment (once a week in the fall and twice a week January-May). Parent involvement is strongly encouraged as at least one coach (preferably 2) and 2 judges (not doubling as coaches) are needed for each team.
Applications must be received by Wednesday, October 5. Practice will start shortly thereafter. Applicants are not guaranteed to participate, as space is limited.
