Happy winter – AGAIN!!

Looks like more wintery weather is coming in on Saturday along with very cold temps.  Stay warm and safe!

Celebrations for this week:

Congratulations to the following students who were named Academic All State in Cross Country:

Emma Mueller, MacKenzie Montandon, Olivia White, Jack Parcell, Drew Elza, and Alexander Sullivan

These students had to score 25+ on their ACT, have a GPA of 3.6+ and had to have competed in District Races.

We are very excited to announce that the Board of Directors for Centene Corporation has donated $25,000 to the OHS Marching Band to help cover some of the costs for their trip to Normandy, France. The chairman of this board has stated that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Highlighted information for the week:

Make sure you note the information below from the Guidance Department concerning student registration for the 2019-20 school year.  Yes, it’s that time again!

Counselors will be explaining the registration process to students through the social studies classes starting the week of January 22nd and completing by February 1st.   Students will be encouraged to research the appropriate course selections for the coming school year based on their future plans.  Students should be discussing their plans and course selections with teachers, counselors, and parents.  During the registration window students will input their course selection through each of their current classes starting Monday February 4th.  The window will be open for students to complete their course selections on their computer through Sunday February 10th.

The course request forms will be distributed to students during ANP February 13th.  Students will use this form to get teachers to sign off on student requests by February 20th and turn into their ANP teacher on February 21st.  If there are any questions, please contact your grade level counselor.

Student select classes (2/4-2/10)

Student receives Request Form (2/13 during ANP)

If a student needs to make a change of their course selections after the input window is closed, they will need to see their grade level counselor.   In April a confirmation letter will be mailed home to confirm student requests.  Students can make adjustments to their requests at this time as well.
