This past week, counselors recognized students during their second period classes to award them with Honor Roll certificates. Students were acknowledged for Honor Roll (3.0-3.4), High Honor Roll (3.5-3.9), and Principal High Honor Roll (4.0+). There were over 2,000 students who earned these honors and were congratulated for their hard work. Great job Yellowjackets!
On Wednesday, December 11th Oxnard High School invited all students and parents for a night to learn about Tools for Success in the Performing Arts Center. The evening event started off with Mr. Cordova presenting a variety of information to parents on building up their toolbox of skills to promote academic success for their students. Parents were informed of the District’s Parent Project that offers parents the techniques to fill empowered to communicate and support their students. OHS offers Academic and Social Support groups during the school day. All students were encouraged to join a school club, a sport and to take advantage of the tutoring resources available to them.
Parents and students were provided with an overview of Graduation Requirements, A-G Requirements, Financial Aid options. We had our OHS AVID Coordinator, Mrs. Henchy and AVID student, Ciani McDuffy, present the benefits of joining AVID to our parents and students. A very special recognition to Staff Sergeant Jon Pew and Sergeant Garcia on presenting how a military path in the Army can be beneficial to students’ education. Thank you, Army for supporting OHS and for providing the delicious Jersey Mike’s sub sandwiches! We also want to thank Ms. Botello and our ASB students for the wonderful posters that you created for Tools for Success Parent Night.
This week Photography students photographed the ROTC Senior portraits this week. Studio 124 turning out some beautiful images. Our ROTC students wear the uniform with pride and it really shows.
Last weekend, nervously keeping the skies in sight, the Cadets charged to participate in Oxnard’s Christmas Parade. At the same time, another group of Cadets helped to ensure the Tri-County GLAD Celebration for Deaf Children and their families, went off without a hitch. On Sunday, before sunrise, the Cadets helped set-up the starting line for the Santa to the Sea marathon. We were very fortunate, the weather cooperated at both events. The atmosphere at all the events was festive, an excellent way to ring in the holiday season.
