  OMS Renaissance Program Overview: 

Dear Parents and Students: 

As we begin another great school year, we have some changes to our Renaissance Program that we would like to share. In previous years, we have used both the Rapid Rewards and Renaissance programs to promote academic and behavioral accountability among students. Upon review of the two programs, we noticed several instances of overlapping ideology. Therefore, we have modified the rewards programs to better serve our students and to allow them more chances to earn the rewards. Our goal is still to reward those students who are able to maintain outstanding academic achievement along with outstanding conduct. You will find the new requirements and rewards for each level of the Renaissance program below: 

Red Level-Highest reward level, these students must maintain an average of 93+ in every class for an entire quarter. Students must have all S’s in conduct in order to achieve this reward level. Students cannot receive any disciplinary referrals in order to be eligible for this level.


Rewards for Red Level students:

·       Students may dress down on Mondays and Thursday in school appropriate jeans & an appropriate out-of-dress-code shirt. (However, blue jean shorts are not allowed.) 

·       Students will receive four (4) free passes to any home athletic game. 

·       Special lunch seating privileges when available 

·       Other privileges/rewards when available 

Silver Level-Second highest reward level, these students have maintained an average of 85+ in each class for the entire quarter. Students must have all S’s in conduct in order to achieve this reward level. Students cannot receive any disciplinary referrals in order to be eligible for this level. 

Rewards for Silver Level Students: 

·       Students may dress down every Thursday in school appropriate jeans and an appropriate out-of-dress-code shirt. (However, blue jean shorts are not allowed.) 

·       Students will receive two (2) free passes to any home athletic game. 

·       Special lunch seating privileges when available 

·       Other privileges/rewards when available 

White Level-This level is designated to reward students who have perfect attendance (students are considered in attendance if they are in school for 4 or more periods). Students must have all S’s in conduct in order to achieve this reward level. Students cannot receive any disciplinary referrals in order to be eligible for this level.

Rewards for White Level Students:

·       Students will receive three (3) Dress Down passes where they may wear school appropriate jeans and an out-of-dress-code shirt. Students must have the pass with them in order to dress down. 

·       Other privileges/rewards when available 

(Only students who have grades from Ooltewah Middle School for the previous quarter qualify for this program. Students who transfer will be eligible for the following quarter of the Renaissance program.)  

**All Renaissance privileges are subject to change as deemed necessary by the administration of Ooltewah Middle School.


   Free and reduced lunch applications must be completed and re-submitted every school year. Click here for a 2016-2017
