  • 5th/6th Grade Odyssey of the Mind State Tournament Competition
    The competition was intense, much more so than at the regional level. Our students did well as they performed their skit as planned and challenged some of the scoring (standing up for an interpretation that they believed in). They came out 7th overall in the teams competing on their problem. We are extremely proud of them and all the hard work they put in this year at Odyssey practices. We thank the participants, parents, ODM coaches Joan Stewart, Tina Sullivan, & Tom Richardson, and Wharton’s staff for their support given to this program; it makes all the difference. Team members include: Anna N. (5th), Gabriella P. (6th), Tatiana R. (6th), Hunter R. (6th), & Jesse S. (5th). Isabella M (6th) from Garden Oaks is also a member of our team.

What is Dual Language?

The Wharton Elementary Dual Language philosophy promotes both Spanish and English as languages of equal value. We feel that by placing importance on both languages we are not only preparing our students for the multi-lingual, multicultural world we are living in, but they are also learning the importance and value in respecting other cultures in our increasingly global society.
