The annual OASD Winter Recreation Day was held of Monday February 27, 2017 with other sixth, seventh and eighth graders skiing and snowboarding at the Porcupine Mountain Ski Area. There were a lot of versus of Heikki Lunta’s Snow Dance Song repeated the week before as the original date for this trip was Friday February 24. The singing must have helped because the hill was open for the Snowburst Festival on the weekend and thus groomed and ready for the Ontonagon student’s trip on Monday. The trip was paid for by the annual fall magazine sale, the JH Student Council’s Schwan’s Cares fundraiser, student payments and a generous grant from the Ontonagon Men’s Association.
