Mr. David Price

Welcome to Ogdensburg Free Academy grades 7 & 8!  The middle level years offer many opportunities for students. Whether students are interested in athletics, the arts, technology, or leadership, they will find an outlet for their talents. We are here to meet the needs of each student and to assist them as they take on new academic and athletic challenges, enjoy rewarding social experiences, and make important strides along the path toward productive citizenship.  At OFA we aim to develop leadership, social and emotional, and academic skills to prepare students for success in college and careers.

Our dedicated faculty and staff strive to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students.  At OFA, we place high value on our partnership with parents, families, and community and we invite you to be an active part of helping students to achieve their full potential.

Please stay engaged with your student and their teachers.  We look forward to discussions about your child's successes. There are links on this website which provide access to student grades (schooltool), teacher e-mail addresses and phone numbers, as well as the school calendar. 

Here are some suggestions to ensure student success:

  • Unless they are not feeling well, be sure that your child attends school every day and on time.
  • Have discussions with your child about what is required in each of his/her courses.
  • Require that your child share with you his/her grades. If you feel that your student is in danger of falling behind or you have questions about the grades, set up an appointment to see the teacher.
  • Talk to your child about choosing friends who will be positive influences in your child’s life.
  • Encourage participation in extra-curricular activities.
 

The extent of your involvement in your child’s school life is a huge predictor of your child’s success and academic growth – they need your guidance and support!  So let’s make this a great school year together!
