OHS STUDENT COUNCIL held their second meeting of the semester Wednesday during 4th period in the Performing Arts Center.  Class representatives or interested students were invited to actively engage in advocating for the Yellow Jacket students.  Student Council is the one true forum where the student body is given an opportunity to voice their concerns and receive feedback from not only their elected officers, but the OHS Administrative team as well.  Some of the topics covered were:

  • Closure of the respective buildings during lunch/black top.
  • Recycling
  • Educational Rigor
  • Trash on Campus
  • Dismissal
  • Locked Restrooms
  • Security
  • Traffic Issues
  • Food Services
  • Senior Information
  • State Testing Updates

TUESDAY’S COLLABORATION focused on certificated staff preparing for a strong finish to semester one.
OHS DEPARTMENT CHAIRS AND COUNSELORS are already preparing for school year 2018-2019.  Assistant Principal Oscar Verdin will be meeting with the respective department chairs to review next year’s course offerings in addition to receiving input to our current course offering menu, possible new courses to be offered, matrix of individual course sequence, etc.
