Seniors Get an Extra 5 Minutes for Lunch This Week

Huge shout out to our Seniors for blowing away the competition with their attendance of 97.38% last week!!!

Juniors came in 2nd with 96.30%, Sophomores took 3rd with 95.06%, and our Freshmen rounded off the group with 93.92%. Odem High School ADA for the Week of October 10-14, 2016 was 95.57%

It's time for Freshmen and Sophomores to step it up and get in the competition with our upper classmen!!!

Attendance Incentives in the Works

Many of you know that OHS does not have a PTO, so it's up to the High School Administration office to raise funds that can be used to celebrate student accomplishments such as perfect attendance.

We had 114 students with perfect attendance during the first six weeks. To qualify for Perfect Attendance at the High School, students must be in attendance all day, every day. The only exceptions are school-related activities.

Last Friday, we surprised our Perfect Attendance students with Pickles and Popcorn as a reward. The administration office will soon be selling Spirit Shirts in an effort to raise funds and provide even better rewards for our students who come to school all day, every day. Be on the lookout for an order form!

October 17 - 21, 2016 is National School Bus Safety Week

# Stop On Red

Please take time to thank a bus driver this week during National School Bus Safety Week. The safety of our students is our number one priority. Thank you for always being mindful of busses when they are stopped to pick up/drop off students. And thank you for your support of our Transportation Department!
