Congratulations OHHS Choir!

OHHS Choir perform Handel’s “Messiah” at Carnegie Hall with the Distinguished Concerts Singers International during the choir’s concert series in New York City.

Congratulations students, what an amazing performance!


Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"

This week B-C-S is featuring, Oak Harbor Middle School 5th grade teacher, Lauren Boss

1. What grade and subject are you're currently teaching?

  • I teach 5th grade language arts and science.

2. What is something different that you are incorporating in your classroom this year?

  • This year I have added flexible seating in my classroom. Students can choose to sit on ball chairs, stools or traditional classroom chairs. There is also a table that has been lowered to allow kids to sit on the floor to work. I think the new seating options have gone over really well and my students are enjoying the set up.

3. What can parents do at home to support what you are teaching to your students in the classroom?

  • For language arts, I think the most important thing that parents can do at home is read with their kids and help them to find reading material that truly interests them. From a science perspective, I would encourage parents to allow their kids to explore and experiment.

4. If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?

  • Don't compare yourself to other people. Everyone is unique and we all bring different strengths to the table. Embrace the things that make you different.

5. What is your favorite family holiday tradition?

  • Like many families, an elf on the shelf visits our house each year in December. Seeing the excitement and joy of the holidays through my kids' eyes is my favorite part of the season.

Below are pictures of the flexible seating offered in Mrs. Boss's room!

RC Waters Recognizes Top Class Dojo Winners for October

R.C. Waters Elementary participates in a school wide initiative. It is called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by allowing a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn. R.C. Waters has adopted a unified set of expectations for behavior in our school. The unified classroom expectations, found in every classroom and non-classroom settings in the school, are as follows: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready.

Student behavior is documented using a tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a free behavior tracking system that reinforces positive behaviors and quickly engages students in becoming accountable for their own choices. One of the main benefits is the easy opportunity to communicate with parents.On a scheduled rotation, students are able to “shop” from the Dojo reward cart using the points they have earned for meeting the behavior expectations.

R.C. Waters would like to highlight the top Class Dojo winners for the month of October.

Oak Harbor students rake in some goodwill!

Teams clean leaves off 30 lawns for community service day!

A number of eighth graders at Oak Harbor High School spent a recent afternoon giving back to the community.

“We went around to houses that looked like they needed raked and we raked them,” said Jack Zeitzheim, an eighth-grade student at Oak Harbor.

After announcing that they would be offering the service last week, entirely for free, some community members reached out and asked for their lawns to be raked.

But when those lawns were finished, the students scouted around and found more homes that looked like they could use a hand with the leaves, Zeitzheim said.

The entire class, divided into eight teams, raked lawns at an estimated 30 or more homes. It was part of the students’ community service day that was organized by the eighth-grade teachers at Oak Harbor High School.

“The idea was just to give back to the community. That’s how it all got started,” said Meghan Dougherty, an English and language arts teacher at Oak Harbor. “It seemed like Thanksgiving week is a good time to do that.”

The first community service day was held last year, and after only the second year it is shaping up to be an annual tradition.

“I think it’s going to continue every year,” said Principal Cheryl Schell. “It’s a good start for the eighth graders at our high school.”

The community service day has been a big success, she said, as feedback from both the community and the students has been positive.

“Our kids enjoy doing community service,” Schell said.

Even without getting a ribbon or reward for the work, Schell explained, the students get back something intrinsically valuable for their efforts.

“I think it’s a great idea our teachers generated. These students are still at a developmental age and might not yet understand what the communities do for them,” she said. “Our community watches out for them and cares for them and they should give back. It’s nice that our teachers are helping them make that connection.”
