Principal’s Memo

Posted on

Hi Everyone,

According to the increased activity downtown, one can see the summer season is almost upon us! It is very important that students focus on making sure they are completing any obligations and classwork as school begins to wind down this year. Students and staff are committed to a strong finish in the school year while we celebrate all of our great accomplishments during the past nine months. 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!

Spring Concert!

Featuring the Concert Band and Chorus

PLUS

Allied Arts Open House!

Please join us on Monday, May 20 at the high school for a combined evening of the arts. Concert begins at 7 PM in the cafeteria. Adults $3/Students and senior citizens $2

BUT

Come early and start in our library where there will be art work from our art program, projects form our industrial technology program, and delectable treats from our culinary program. Then take a walk through the hallway where more great artwork is displayed, and our personal fitness areas are open for inspection. Then finish the night with a concert by our award winning musicians!

Travel Abroad Opportunity!

This year, a group of students spent their April Break in Costa Rica. Next year, we are going to Italy!! To learn more about this exciting travel experience, and determine if the trip is a good fit for your student, join Ms. Jaffe in the high school library on Wednesday May 29th at 6:30pm for an informational meeting. We will go over all the trip details, and enrollment information will be provided.

This travel experience is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and open to all students who will be at the high school next year. Don’t miss out on the chance to give your student an incredible, life changing experience. Email sjaffe@rsu23.org with any questions.

Senior Classwork

OOBHS classes for all seniors are concluded unless there are extenuating circumstances such as a need for credit recovery work, AP/College credit classes or Band/Chorus graduation prep classes which require attendance throughout May. Seniors attending BRCOT will continue to attend their normal vocational classes until May 24.

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.

May 23rd, 8:30-2:00 pm – Senior Internship Presentations will take place throughout the day in the high school gym.  We would love to have you join us if you are able; your seniors will be able to tell you more about the specific times they will be speaking.

OOBHS Field Day Friday June 7th!

The OOBHS Boosters are hosting their annual Field Day at OOBHS on Friday June 7. 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.  

Community Service

Students must complete 20 hours of community service as a graduation requirement. Parents of seniors please check with your child to find out if they still have hours to complete. Please contact the guidance office for community service opportunities. We have plenty for the kids to do!
