Message from Sharon Lasher, Principal
Welcome to the official end of the school year! We are in the 4th quarter, and therefore in the final stretch of the 2017-2018 school year.
We recently returned from our 8th grade college trip with 105 students after spending three days in the Philadelphia area. Our students had the opportunity to see the College of New Jersey, the University of Pennsylvania, and Princeton University, in addition to Constitution Hall, The Eastern State Penitentiary, and Freedom Hall. Many of them enjoyed an authentic Philly Cheesesteak sandwich as well.
As we begin the month of May, we are gearing up for the many AP exams that will be administered during the first two weeks of the month. Our students have been working hard in all of their AP classes to prepare for these exams, and are aware of the numerous benefits one can receive in college from doing well on these exams. Also in May, we have our NYS Math Assessment, which will be administered the first week of May to our 7th graders.
In addition to testing, May is filled with many things to celebrate. We have our grade 7/8 Mixed Chorus Concert (May 10), our Quill & Scroll Honor Society Induction Ceremony (May 15), the OBEN District Science Fair (May 16), the grade 7/8 & Symphonic Band Concert (May 16), the OBHS Art Show (May 18) and we end with our OBHS Academic Award Ceremony on May 31. Please be reminded that our Budget Vote is May 16 from 7am-9pm as well. While all if this is going on, our spring athletic teams are playing their scheduled games; you can find the full athletic schedule on our website.
Be sure to mark your calendars for all of the outstanding things we have going on during the month of May.
I look forward to seeing you there!
