Fourth quarter progress report grades will be available for viewing today so please check with your child regarding their school work. Also please pay close attention to the “Upcoming Important Dates” section at the bottom of the memo so you can mark your calendars. Here are the communications for this week.

OOBHS Boosters Need New Officers!

The OOBHS Boosters are going to need people to help organize and run the club. The current officers are stepping down due to their children’s graduation this year.  The current group has done a great job the last 4 years, and have given over $17,000.00 to OOBHS for various student/staff/school things, We would hate for this to come to an end. Please consider becoming an officer to lead our boosters!

Senior Internships!

We are excited to announce that Senior Interns are off and running with their internship experiences.  Parents/Guardians, please be sure to check your emails for more information. We appreciate your support in reminding students of requirements and deadlines.
