WHAT IS THE OGE MINI-MUSEUM?
We have turned the trophy case located outside the cafeteria into a place to display objects of artistic, cultural, educational, historical, or scientific importance. The display may be a collection curated by a student or teacher, or could have significance to a current event like the Lantern Parade. It will also periodically be used to display "Natural Curiosity Show and Tell" items.
Students can learn more about the natural world by participating in the "Natural Curiosities Show and Tell". Using the form to the left, they will sketch and describe a natural object they have found. During one of our "Museum Days", students will bring the object and form to school to be displayed in the Mini-Museum.
Please be respectful of nature and follow “Leave No Trace” rules while exploring.

>> Don’t collect bird nests, feathers*, eggs, or turtle shells
>> Leave living plants and animals where you find them
>> Take only one of each item when you are collecting from nature
>> Don’t collect items from state or national parks, or items protected by law*The possession of feathers and other parts of native North American birds without a permit is prohibited by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
