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, HS Senior Sarah Barney - Class of 2018!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself?

  • I am a senior and heavily involved in activities both inside and outside of school. I dance about 12 hours a week at Mookie’s Academy of Dance in Port Clinton. I take ballet, tap, and contemporary classes. Inside of school, I participate in Student Council, National Honor Society, the co-president of the Art Club, and have performed in the play and musicals including the upcoming one in March, “The Pajama Game.”

2. What college are you planning on attending and what will you be studying?

  • After high school, I plan on being a student at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. I aim to pursue my passion for English and learning by majoring in Education. And hopefully, I will be able to continue dancing.

3. How has Oak Harbor High School prepared you for your next step in education?

  • Oak Harbor High School in many ways, has prepared me for college. Dominantly, it has given me a plethora of opportunities to be a leader within the school: allowing me to be a part of Student Council, the co-president of the Art Club, and most importantly, be the organizer of the two-year-old annual talent show. For the show, I have set the audition dates, recruited acts and emcees, and incorporated a fundraiser for Wreaths Across America within the show. These tasks have taught me skills that I will carry throughout my college career and even after college.

4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

  • Ideally, I would be well traveled, well educated, and well experienced. I hope to be fluent in at least one language. Most importantly, I hope to just be enjoying my life as much as I can. And I do want to be a teacher, but perhaps I would write and travel before settling down to teach in a high school.

5. What advice would you offer to future seniors?

  • Before my senior year, I was barely involved in any school activities. However at the start of my senior year, I was determined to change that. I joined student council, talked to people I have never conversed with before, and went to games and participated in the themes. This transformed my high school experience; I truly became a part of the school rather than just a student. I regret not being involved in school spirit from the start of my freshman year. So my advice to future seniors is, if you’re not already participating in school spirit, do it.

It's National School Breakfast Week!

Oak Harbor HS Band & Choir Receive Top Rating at OMEA Event

On Friday & Saturday, March 2nd & 3rd, the B-C-S School District hosted the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) District 2 High School Large Group Adjudicated Event. This event brought in over 3,500 students performing in 64 bands and choirs from this region of Ohio. Each group performed for four professional adjudicators, selected by OMEA, evaluated and critiqued their performances and assigned a rating based on that performance. Performances were hosted at both Oak Harbor High School and Oak Harbor Middle School. This event was a significant fundraising opportunity for the B-C-S Music Boosters, who operated concession stands at both locations.

The Oak Harbor High School Concert Band and Mixed Choir were among the performing groups, and both groups received a Superior rating overall, the highest rating available. They will now be participating in late April at OMEA State HS Large Group, located in Findlay for the band and Van Buren for the choir.
