Message from Sharon Lasher, Principal
Welcome to Autumn! Our first quarter is coming to an end, as is our Fall sports season. The Baymen won their last football game beating Friends Academy under the lights last Friday. Our girls’ soccer team played a great playoff game, unfortunately ending their season with a 1-0 loss to Carle Place. Great season for the Lady Baymen Soccer team! Winter sports teams begin their practices next week!
Good luck to all!
The first marking period ends on Friday November 3. Grades will be posted and available to parents on Thursday, November 9. The parent/student portal gradebook tab will be closed from November 3 – November 9, giving teachers time to calculate and enter their grades. Tuesday, November 7 is a Superintendent’s Conference Day; school is closed for all students. School is also closed Friday, November 10 in recognition of Veteran’s Day.
Our students in grades 8 and 10 are selling raffle tickets in order to defray the cost of their upcoming college trips. The grand prize is a very generous $750 Norwegian Cruise gift card donated to us by Michael Giarretto of Cruise Planners of Oyster Bay in conjunction with Norwegian Cruise Lines. There are 2nd and 3rd place prizes this year, which are gift cards to Cruise Planners in the amount of $250 and $150 respectively. We thank Mr. Giarretto for his generosity and support! The winner of the raffle prize will be chosen on December 20 at our OBHS winter concert. Tickets may be sold until December 20 at 3pm.
Our 7th and 8th graders have been busy rehearsing for their upcoming musical on Friday, November 17. Based upon the singing we hear in the hallways after school, it is going to be a great show filled with many talented and enthusiastic kids! We hope to see you there!
I held my first in a series of three roundtable discussions yesterday focusing on issues that are on the minds of parents and educators. Please join me at one or both of the following scheduled discussions:
November 8: 7:45am-8:30am – Teens and alcohol; social host laws
November 14: 6:30pm-7:30pm – Student discipline and consequences
I do ask that you RSVP to Slasher@obenschools.org or to 516-624-6524 so we can plan accordingly. Thank you.
Hope to see you all soon!
