This Week at Our House
Posted on 11/09/2018

Greetings Tiger Families!!

I certainly hope that everyone has enjoyed some of the beautiful fall weather, because as of today, it seems winter is knocking at our door. Also, Thanksgiving Break is just seven school days away!  No school November 21-23.  Below are the celebrations and highlighted information for next week:


Congratulations to Morgan Allen, Nathan Gallop, Victoria Jones, Trent Manning, Haley Miller, Olivia Novak, Thomas Schartner, and Eric Throm!  These students make up half of the all-state students from the St. Louis Suburban District.  Only 16 positions are available.  This is the most we have had from OHS!

The journalism students were very successful at the National High School Journalism Convention last week. Kristin Kuchno (individual superior award), Caden Turner, Isabella Wirthlin and Selma Vukovic (team superior award). An Excellent Award went to Jordan Beseda, and an Excellent Rating went to Beth Hagan. Caroline Lewis, Christina Meier, and Emily Merritt received Honorable mention.  These students earned awards in many different categories.  More than 6,000 schools from around the country attended the convention.

Our boys swim team had 8 swimmers qualify for state competition last week.  They are: Christian Boll, Trent Manning, Doug, Poertner, and Ethan Hansen (200M relay), Poertner, Luke Schmidt, Mason Zimmermann and Boll (Freestyle relay), Poertner (100 Fly), Seth Seinbrueck and Schmidt (500 freestyle), Boll (100M backstroke), and Steven Boaz (1M Diving).  They began state competition play this Friday and continues on Saturday at the St. Peter’s Rec Plex. Go Tigers!

Our Tiger Marching Band performed for the Soldier’s Memorial re-dedication this past Sunday!  I had several people from different communities tell me how impressed they were with our students’ performance and behavior.  Way to represent us Band!
