Weekly Update

April 27, 2020

Parents/Guardians

At Oak Grove High School, we are committed to engaging our students through our normal material as much as possible. We will use this page to communicate with parents what students should be engaged with during this closure. None of this work will be graded, some teachers might provide feedback to the students. This work is just to keep students engaged with their learning.


With virtual learning, the students will have to take responsibility for their learning. Please communicate and support your student's work. Express to them how important it is to stay diligent with their learning. Also, please be in communication with your teacher for additional materials or help with any material. Most of our teachers are able to be reached at the email address provided.


Some teachers have compiled resources for those that might not have access to the internet. Also, you can have additional material printed and pick-up at Oak Grove High School by reaching out to your teacher or me at jwarner@wcpsb.com.

Weekly Thoughts from the Principal

Transactional Thinking is in a way that says "What Can I Get?" while Relational Thinking is more about "What Can I Give?" - Focus on the relationship. Love. Serve. Care.


- Jon Gordon | @jongordon11



I think that this statement is more important now that ever. Always think of ways that you can provide servant leadership.


Keep Clawing Forward OGHS!

Packet Pick-up on May 7th

For Grades 6-8, we will be having a packet pick-up day on May 7th. These packets will be the same as what is given on google classroom, so if you have internet access there is no need to come to get a packet. Also using the link below we can mail you a packet instead of having to come to the school to pick it up.


There are Filing Cabinets located outside of the bus ramp. Drive up and park in Bus Ramp. Open the cabinet for the grade level that you need and grab one folder. Then go back to your car. Please be mindful of social distancing.


**YOU MAY RETURN PACKETS THE SAME WAY**


Remember you only need to get these if you do not have access to the internet. Google Classroom is still a great resource to use for those that do have internet.


High School we will only be printing packets by request. If you need printed material sent to your student please request it using the link below.

OGHS PTO

Follow our OGHS PTO Facebook page for a way to enter your student into a give away for doing their Suggested Work posted on our variety of resources. Use the #OGHSclawingforward to be entered into their give away. This work is not mandatory, but we can incentivize it to get students working on their education.


We at OGHS appreciates the PTO. They are always creative and willing to tackle the task. Please join our PTO and find out how you can help students at OGHS!

Current Dual Enrollment Students:



The ULM date for dropping a class with a "W" (tuition still owed) has been extended to Friday, May 1, 2020.


That means DE Contacts can submit DE Withdrawal Request forms for Spring 2020 and Full-Year 2019-2020 DE courses through Thursday, April 30, 2020 @ NOON.

All electronically submitted Withdrawal Request forms must be accompanied by an email from the DE student's ULM email address specifically stating the desire to withdraw from the course with a brief statement including the reason (so we can keep data on the impact of Covid-19 and student lack of access to internet/wifi services).


I'm so thankful to share truly helpful news with you.



Students wanting to enroll in Dual Enrollment for Fall 2020



A little more good news to share...


The $20 application fee will be waived through May 1, 2020.

Below is what we received showing that the application fee status will show as 'waived' for anyone who completes the online application to ULM through May 1, 2020.



The Admissions Applications fees for all admissions applications are now set to $0.00 through May 1, 2020, per Dr. Bruno’s directive. When an application is submitted, it will bypass the Payment Summary/TouchNet screen completely.

On the applicant’s Supplemental Items, the Application Fee status will be shown as “Waived” with a description of “Your Application fee is waived per ULM's Spring 2020 promotion.”



Please take good care of yourself,

Class of 2020!

In the link provided is a FAQ page that the state has released for Guidance for Seniors. Nothing from a District standpoint has been decided. As we have meetings and items are made official, I will be sure to let you know. You can use this document provided to answer any lingering questions.

ACTIVITIES FOR WEEK OF APRIL 6TH


Hey Kids! Still missing you all very much!


I am going to attempt to get back on track with the Holocaust. There are too many (millions of) significant people and events from the Holocaust to just drop it and leave it alone. So this week you will learn about Elie Wiesel! He is one of my favorite people to teach you about. Here we go!

Hey, there, my fabulous 7th graders!!


Well, we are unbelievably in week 4 of this quarantine, and I know you, like me, are still trying to make sense of what’s going on. I am missing you all tremendously and can’t believe we aren’t seeing each other every day. I do hope that each of you is taking advantage of some good time at home with your families. I have realized through this stay-at-home order that it is possible (and also reassuring) to slow life down a bit and enjoy things we take for granted on a daily basis.


As far as staying up on your school work, I encourage you to keep at it! I have been impressed with the ones of you who have engaged in some of the activities I put on Google Classroom a couple weeks ago. It takes discipline to know what needs to be done and actually following through with it. Kudos to you smart kiddos!!


For those of you who are just now “logging in” and seeing what activities are available and ready to be conquered, I encourage you to get started! Don’t overwhelm yourself with what’s to be done; just take it in small chunks little by little each day. Get a schedule laid out, and try to stick to it. You’ll be proud of yourself in the end for what you’ve accomplished through discipline!


In case you’ve forgotten our Classroom codes: Block A >> kazvo2q

Block B >> rtxpl49

Block C >> owkkxqy


Week 1-2-3 Assignments: These were posted March 20 and include the following:

  1. Mid-Year Pearson Test - all m/c questions just to check up on our reading comprehension skills to make sure we haven’t lost them :)

  2. Khan Academy Grammar Unit - this is focused on mastering the 8 parts of speech, punctuation, syntax (such as sentence structure, clauses, and conventions), and usage. It is lengthy, but a really good unit on grammar. Y’all all know how Mrs. Hurley feels about grammar! :)

  3. 7th Grade Packet - this is a PDF and each of you should have gotten your own digital copy. The best way to complete this is by printing a copy of the packet if you have access to a printer. If you need one mailed to you, Principal Warner will be glad to mail you a copy from the school.

There are a few pages of math at the beginning that I just left in case y’all wanted to tackle that also.

Also, you could also recreate a copy on paper yourself. Or you could at least just answer the questions on paper.


Week 4 Assignments:

  1. 30-Day Journal Writing - I have created an assignment through Google Classroom that will link you to the NewsELA site. This is a prompt a day for 30 days in which you will respond.

You may choose to complete in a Google Doc or handwritten (which I personally think is more meaningful).

I challenge each of you to get to work TODAY on this one. It can be a great tool to stay connected to your

Learning, and it is something other than normal assignments I have posted above.

Go outside and sit under a tree to do this one. It’ll be more fun and less like you’re doing “school work” that way!

  1. Continue working on the assignments from Weeks 1-2-3 until you’ve completed them.



I really do miss you guys. I miss our class time together. I hope and pray each of you is staying safe and doing your part to help all of us get past this challenging time. I love y’all and hope to see you soon!


4/20 - 5/7/20 Update:

I have posted a question for you to respond to, and would love to hear from you!

A set of reading skills practice has been posted to GClassroom as well.

Again, take the Mid-Year Reading Comprehension Test I posted if you haven’t already.

Email me with any questions you may have.

Miss and love y’all!!

Mrs. Hurley :)
