OHS 2018 is in full swing!  Our students and staff returned from Winter Recess eager and ready to accept the challenges of the remainder of the year!

 

DECEMBER CAMPUS RECAP!

Student Recognition:

Iasiah Loggins was recognized as a graduate of the Pre-Engineering Program at a special graduation ceremony held at the Oxnard Harbor District Conference Room.  Congratulations!

Daniel Quesada remains the King of the Handball Court.  Friendly competition is scheduled throughout the remainder of the year during the student lunch period.

Academics:

Come one – come all!  In order to prepare all grade levels for the SAT, in particular our junior students who will be taking the SAT, OHS has implemented a zero period class to help increase student scores.

Activities:

By popular demand, Assistant Principal Lisa Venable organized a lunchtime chalk art competition between the various grade levels.

OHS introduced its new OAC Club!  Hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor activities are planned.  OHS’s first official Robotics meeting was held!  Members of all backgrounds, artistic, construction, gaming, programming, social networking, and more participated.

The OHS Marching Band participated in both the Oxnard and Camarillo Christmas Parades. 

In honor of Computer Science Week, OHS’s own Girls’ Who Code hosted an hour of code after school in the library.  

OHS Teacher Crystal Murillo and the Peer Resource class made fun cards to say “thank you” to our community members.  OHS Teacher Renee Fisher and KEY Club members hosted a fun Saturday skate party to inspire students to do GOOD for our community.  OHS Teachers Mr. Borneman and Mr. Peterson hosted several schools for a CHARADES review with the local AcaDeca teams one Saturday.

PBIS is continuing to foster the celebration of all that is positive while also INCREASING COMMUNICATION with our student families.  As a result, OHS Positive Postcards were developed and provided to the teaching staff to take a few minutes to acknowledge students who may not always get the “notice” such as improved attendance, marked change in participation or grade.

Athletics:

Lady Jacket Soccer started their season with a 2-0 victory over Santa Paul and continue to be a force to be reckoned with.

JR Waters, Basketball; and Cami Pedro, Wrestling; were named December’s Athletes of the Week.

Girls’ Water Polo competed in the Mistletoe Tournament and took 3rd place out of 26 teams.
