ASB-“Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month”

A big thank you to everyone on campus for helping us celebrate “Hispanic Heritage Month” from loteria to pinatas and could not forget the ducles and pandulce.

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17,1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin America countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemalea, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Dia de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

LIBRARY AND COLLEGE AND CAREER CENTER

On Thursday 10/3 during Back to School night, the OHS College and Career Center (CCC) and the OHS Library hosted its first Parent FAFSA Workshop. In partnership with Oxnard College and Oscar Cisneros from Destination College Advising Corps, the CCC and library helped 70 seniors complete their FAFSA. The next FAFSA Workshop will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm in the CCC (English) and library.

OHS LIBRARY

During the month of September, all 9th grade English classes went through library orientation at the OHS Library. To help familiarize freshmen with the library’s expectations and resources, students did a technology station rotation, added Destiny Discover to their phones to search the library’s collection, did some “book dating,” and checked out books. Currently, over 1200 books are in circulation. Mrs. Brickey would like to thank the Library Science students for all their hard work and dedication while helping the freshmen. 

World Cuisine

Last Friday, September 27th students learned about culinary competitions, scholarships, and got to see the documentary on women chefs, A Fine Line. Very exciting day! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in C-CAP!
