Hi Everyone!

Graduation is complete and we had a wonderful farewell to our beloved Class of 2019. Thanks to everyone who helped make graduation week happen and to those who volunteered their time for the ceremony last Sunday. Summer here we come….

OOBHS Field Day Today!

The OOBHS Boosters are hosting their annual Field Day at OOBHS today from 1:00-2:45pm. They are looking for donations of chips, cookies, Gatorade etc. and volunteers. Please contact oobhsboosters@gmail.com to help!  Also, remind your children to see their class officers to sign up for the Relay, Tug of War, and Dunk tank activities.  

End Of Year Reminder

A reminder to all students and their parents that final exams start today and run through next week. Please finish all work and take care of any obligations still remaining for this school year.  We have had a great year and we want everyone to finish in a strong fashion. Please call or text me at (207) 351-0099 about any questions and concerns as we move into summer. The 2019 Summer Academy will be held at Old Orchard Beach High School Monday, June 17th – Friday, June 28th from 8:30-10:30.  Student referral letters and registration information will be sent home early next week. There is no cost for the program and credit recovery work will either be coursework through the Educere online learning platform or specific assignments developed and submitted by the student’s teacher. Credit recovery plans are personalized for each student and students are expected to participate in summer academy and meet all the requirements outlined in their credit recovery plan.

Spring Sports News!

In spring track, sophomore, Trevor Grenier was a standout performer for the team this season and top point scorer.  He was named to the WMC 2nd Team All-Conference for his 2nd place finish in the 110 m hurdles. He placed 3rd at the WMC Conference meet for the 300 hurdles. Trevor placed 8th at the state meet in both the 110 hurdles and the 300 m hurdles.

The boys 4×800 team of Kellen Zecchinelli, Marcus Gaudet, Kyle Methot, and Joe Atwater broke the school record at the state meet by 19 seconds.  They are a young team so we are looking forward to a great future with them.
