Principal’s MemoPosted on
I hope you all had a great week. Students and staff had a productive week as they are beginning to dive into the essential content of our courses. We are a few weeks into the school year and this is a good time to check on how school has started for your student. Contact information for each teacher is posted on our school website under “Faculty and Staff.” Here we go with this week’s announcements!
Car Show Tomorrow!
OOBHS Boosters’ now have a volunteer sign up website. https://www.volunteersignup.org/ETBX4
Boosters are in need of volunteers for the Car Show tomorrow. This is a great way to get community service hours for students. They start set up at 7:30am and are done by 3pm.
We need student and adult volunteers in both the AM and PM sessions. Students will receive community service hours toward graduation. We are also accepting donations. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the website if you have an interest in volunteering or donating items for the show. The proceeds benefit the OOBHS Boosters and the high school scholarship fund. The OOBHS Boosters need help with setup, cooking, serving, cleaning, tear down, etc. Thank you!
Chromebooks are currently being distributed. Students will be able to pick-up their Chromebooks only if they have (1) returned a signed Device Use Policy Form, (2) returned a signed Family Commitment Letter , (3) paid the $50 participation fee ($25 for reduced lunch students, $10 for free lunch students), and (4) all outstanding invoices must be paid if full. You may pay via the Paypal link on our website or please make checks payable to RSU #23.
Once deployed, school issued ChromeBooks will be the primary technology tool for learning and students will be expected to use them while at school. Beginning next week, students will not be able to use their own devices during the school day.
If you have not done so already, please update your contact information and personal information in Powerschool on the form that was sent home and have your child return the form or contact us. We want to make sure we have the correct information in our database. Thank you!
More From The OOBHS Boosters
We have home games September 21st, October 6th is homecoming and October 19th, that we will need help in the concession stand. Please go to the website https://www.volunteersignup.org/ETBX4 or email email@example.com to sign up and help. Students can get community service hours toward graduation by helping with concessions.
Family Vacation Forms
During the school year some families take vacations and ask that we excuse their children from school days. This is not a problem, however we do have forms for the student, parents, teachers and administration to sign off on in order to help students understand the expectations of making up missed work. The forms can be found in the main office. Thanks for your help!
