On Wednesday, February 26th students visited the Los Angeles US District Court. They met with U.S. District Judge Honorable Andre Birotte Jr. They wanted to thank him for opening his courtroom for our OHS LAPS students. It was a wonderful experience.
Black History Month
On Thursday, February 27th we celebrated Black History. Students and Mr. Spence for raising awareness of the contributions to America by African Americans. Our history is full of difference makers that were black, they weren’t included in the pictures you see in books. Great showcase by these students and Mr. Spence.
