Message from Sharon Lasher, Principal
Welcome to March! We are officially in the second half of the 2016-2017 school year as our third quarter is under way.
We had a successful 10th grade college trip this past January. We visited nine colleges over five days in five different states. The kids had a great time and learned firsthand about the differences between public and private schools, urban and rural campuses, large schools and small. They enjoyed dining in the various dining halls and visiting with OBHS alumni at several of the schools we visited. The eight adults chaperoning the trip had a great time as well!
We are currently preparing for our 2017-2018 school year. All of our students should have requested their classes for next year and we are beginning to build our schedule. We have some exciting new courses and look forward to providing our students with the opportunity to learn new things.
March is a busy month! Spring sports have started and the schedule for games should be available soon. We held our grade 7 science fair, which was a lot of fun. We got to learn a great deal from our young scientists! Our second parent-teacher conference night will be held on March 16 and we have inductions to the Science Honor Society and the Foreign Language Honor Society this month as well. Please make sure to see our musical this year, You’re a good Man Charlie Brown on March 24, 25 and 26. To end the month, we are hosting a financial aid night on March 30 at 7pm in the library.
Mark your calendars for all of the outstanding things we have going on as we (hopefully) say goodbye to winter and hello to Spring!
