Orders will be taken on a first come first serve basis.  All quilts will be completed and ready for pick up by Friday, May 18th. Purchasers are responsible for pick up, installing/displaying their own quilt. Each 4 ft  x 4 ft  quilt is $65.00. Please note that this is a community service project and the price reflects the cost of materials.


Barn quilts are wooden squares painted to look like quilts and positioned on a garage, barn, house, shed, business or free standing post. Barn quilts are based on traditional patterns painted to make them unique to each property and community. Barn quilts will not have any logos or lettering on them, as they are art, not a sign.

OESJ Juniors Create a Documentary

OESJ Juniors in Ms. Jewett's English and Mr. Yvar's U.S. History class, worked with Special Ed. teacher Rose Sammons, Library Media Specialist Karen Johnson, and Bill Cooper in the Technology Dept. to create a documentary Titled: The American Civil Rights Movement. Students worked in small groups to research and then create a short film to tell the story of one part of the American struggle for equality and justice, which spans decades and continues today. The entire project was assembled from these pieces into one full length film. Students were treated to a pizza party where they viewed the final product, a Film "Wrap Party". Students and teachers all learned together that the film-making industry is tough and requires good communication skills, time-management, and a great deal of grit.

OESJ HS Students visit the State Capitol

Junior and seniors went on a field trip to the New York State Capitol with their English, History, and Business Law classes. They enjoyed a guided tour of the Capitol Building, including some of the most beautiful architecture in America, The Hall of Governors, and got to sit in the legislative chambers, to get a better idea of where and how the work of our state government takes place. They also spent part of their day at New York State Museum, where they enjoyed exhibits on the women's suffrage movement, 9/11, and the Iroquois peoples, among many others highlighting the rich history of New York State resources and art.
