Principal’s Memo

Posted on

Hello Everyone!

Well, March is finally here. Incredibly, the end of the year and graduation are at the forefront of my mind. I know it’s hard to believe, but commencement exercises for our beloved OOBHS Class of 2019 are 94 days away! In the main office we have started to plan for next year. We are now starting the process of building next year’s program of studies, master schedule, planning an 8th grade transition night, and putting together a staff professional development plan for the remainder of the year. Business is really starting to pick up! Here are this week’s communications:

Next Wednesday March 6th is an Early Release Day!
