Quote for the Week:

 

“Children need models rather than critics.”– Joseph Joubert

 

Mr. Tedders’ Notes:

 

We are entering the 4th 9 Weeks:

Some things you can do to check on your student:

            Check Skyward grades at least once a week.

            Scheduled classes for next year? If you missed your night, other times available soon.

            Is your student on track for Graduation with GPA, credits, and testing requirements?

            Taken the PERT, SAT, or ACT yet?

It is that time of the year to start planning courses for the next school year. Letters have been sent out with the dates and times for upcoming scheduling dates. Parents, please bring your student to the OHS Guidance Office to select courses for next year according to the following schedule:
