Hello Mustang Families!

Mustang Families,

Huge thank you to our PTSA for distributing our “Proud OLHMS Mustangs” T-Shirts this week to our 6th and 7th grade scholars! We look forward to each of our scholars sporting these shirts every Monday for Mustang Monday! OLHMS grads will be receiving their PTSA gift as we near the conclusion of the year! Speaking of gifts, Dr. McNichols has had the chance to visit half of the 5th graders this week dropping off some gifts and introducing OLHMS before each elementary school stops over for their tour! We could not be more excited for this incoming group- they are very eager to be Mustangs! Our current scholars have completed the IAR Assessment and we will be MAP assessing next month.

Updates and Reminders

Community Meeting: Dr. McNichols did attend the Oak Lawn Village Traffic Safety Meeting and it was passed to institute a one-way traffic flow for the 22/23 school year on Oak Center Dr. Unfortunately, as a part of this process I did hear many stories that I know are not consistent with our mission/ vision and hope that all of our families will model for our scholars courteous and respectful actions and responses. Also, please keep in mind the front of the school is for buses only. We have had very close calls with parents almost hitting buses or students in the main parking lot during arrival and dismissal.

School Bus Behaviors: Mustang families we need your help to communicate with each of our scholars safe and respectful behaviors on the bus to and from school. Please keep in mind that students unable to ride the bus safely, respectfully and responsibly will be given consequences for their behaviors and could be suspended or removed from this opportunity. We will continue to work with First Student on the timeliness of rides, but also need your support to reinforce proper bus behavior.

Morning and Afterschool Drop Off: Please continue to be courteous, safe and cautious of one another, our scholars and our neighbors. Keep in mind drop off in the morning or the afternoon must take place on Oak Center Drive in the back of our building. We need the front lot for bus drop off and pick up.

Social Media: Continue to monitor and discuss the importance for the use of social media and potential implications for our scholars. Technology and information is at the tips of our fingers. It is all of our responsibility to utilize these tools as positive resources and model respectfulness. Our school continues to be challenged by negative social media interactions affecting our school and scholars.
