OH Thespians invite you to join us at the OHHS Auditorium for "Footloose The Musical" This Weekend!

Are you suffering from the winter blues? Does the grey weather have you down? In one week you can lose your blues and kick off your Sunday shoes at the Oak Harbor Thespians production of “Footloose: The Musical”!

With its Oscar'-nominated hit score (the film soundtrack album has sold over 15 million copies worldwide) the celebrated film musical now bursts explosively onto the stage! When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn't prepared for is the local laws - including a ban on dancing - which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town's youths. When the Reverend's rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid.

We invite you to join us at the Oak Harbor High School Auditorium for any of the following performances:

Friday, March 8th: 7:30 pm

Saturday, March 9th: 7:30 pm

Sunday, March 10th: 2:00 pm

Ticket Prices are:

Adults: $10

Students/ Senior citizens:$8


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, Senior at Penta Career Center, Sarah Hablitzel

1. Please tell the B-C-S Community a little about yourself.

  • I am currently at Penta Career Center Studying Cosmetology, while in National Technical Honor Society, and the ambassador program that shows leadership and responsibilities here at Penta. I also am in 4-H showing pigs and rabbits. I work in a salon as a receptionist right now.

2. What are your career plans and goals and how do you plan to achieve them?

  • My career goals are to Graduate Penta with my cosmetologist license. To succeed that I need 1500 hours of lab hours doing hair, skin, and nails. I have finished all my hours just as of today so now I have submitted my application to the State Board of Cosmetology. After high school, I plan on attending Owens Community College or Terra State for a Business degree so I can own my own business one day. After that, I want to attend a makeup school in Toronto, Canada. My end goal is to do wedding hair and makeup in the long run.

3. What is your favorite High School memory?

  • My favorite High school memory is honestly coming to Penta and meeting new people and getting out of my comfort zone. But other than that when I attended Oak Harbor I was in the band and it would have had to been to football games doing some really fun songs.

4. What is the best advice you could give to an underclassman?

  • Don't take anything for granted and high school goes by really fast so have fun because you can't take back time.

5. What's on your bucket list this summer?

  • This summer I want to spend time with my friends before we all go off to college and start our lives. I want to take a mini trip with my friends somewhere but I don't know where yet.

Nuclear plants still hold value to Ohio, experts argue

Genius Hour!

Mrs. Beard runs a Genius Hour for a group of students. During Genius Hour, students were allowed to choose the topic they wanted to research. After forming an essential question (for example “What would happen if the moon disappeared?”, or “Why do flamingos stand on 1 leg?”) students created a plan as to how they would research their topic and also had to decide what type of product they would create to show what they learned. Students spent many weeks taking notes, watching videos, and learning about their topic. After the research portion was complete, they then started creating their final project. Some students created 3-D sculptures, one student created a video newscast about what he had learned, and others created poster boards displaying their information. Students presented their information to the class and shared what they learned with their loved ones during our loved ones breakfast on February 14th.

Dr. Seuss Night at RC Waters!

RC Waters hosted Under the Sea with Dr. Seuss Night last Thursday. Families participated in activities including making an ocean in a bottle, listening to guest readers (members of the HS softball team), researching ocean animals, making a sailor hat and a jellyfish craft, and comparing the sizes of different sea creatures. The night wouldn't have been complete without a visit with the Grinch, Cat in the Hat, Things 1 & 2, and the Lorax! Big thanks to the MS student council and the HS softball team volunteers that helped with the event!

R.C. Waters Celebrates Right-To-Read Week!
