OLHMS Weekly 12/20/22
Winter Break Begins 12/26/22 to 1/8/23
We have been enjoying all of the participation with the themed calendar pictured below! We tried to add some additional joy and excitement as we put the finishing touches on December before heading away for winter break and starting a New Year!
Our last day of student attendance is Friday, December 23rd. We will be returning to school on January 9th. Please remind scholars to take home items needed for the holiday break and keep their Chromebooks charged. We will have a busy week when we return to school on January 9th beginning with our PTSA meeting along with NWEA MAP testing and Graduation Pictures on January 12th (Thursday).
On behalf of our entire Mustang Community, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! Please enjoy this break with your families and friends- take time away from electronics, spend some time outside in the snow and find some time to read a bit!

Cell Phones/ Social Media: Please remind our scholars that cel phones should be turned off and locked in their lockers daily. Also, critically important is monitoring the use of our scholars device. We are inundated with social media concerns taking place outside of school or on the weekends! Please remain vigilant with what is happening on social media- Tiktok, Snapchat and Instagram are consuming our scholars!
NJHS: There will be an informational meeting for interested scholars on December 21st! Mark your calendars! Here is the informational LINK.
