Remember to Vote!

* The polls are open tomorrow from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM. Here is a list of the polling locations in Ottawa County.

* Remember the need for this 3.9 Mill Property Tax is due to the 73% devaluation of Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant in 2018. B-C-S lost about 25% of its operating budget due to this devaluation!

* The cost of this property tax is $136 per year on a home with a market value of $100,000.

* The passage of this levy would mean bringing back busing to last year's levels and bringing back Acorn Alley in January 2020, and other positive changes.

Thank you for your support.

Happy 50th Day of school!

Kindergarten and first grade students celebrated the 50th day of school! Students listened to 50’s music at a sock hop, tried blowing bubble gum bubbles, drank root beer floats, and had a hula hoop contest.

Halloween Parade!

The weather didn’t dampen our spirits. Instead of parading downtown, students and staff paraded through the halls on Halloween and had a spooktacular time at Halloween parties!

2nd Annual Season in REview Concert

This Thursday, November 7th, at 7:30 pm is the OHHS Band second annual season in review concert! Come listen to the entire marching season's worth of music in the warmth of the Launch Pad. Music, dancing, drumming, awards, maybe even a squeaky rubber chicken don't want to miss it!

Join the OHHS Thespians as we present CLUE

On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Based on the popular board game and adapted from the cult classic film, Clue is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.

Join the OHHS Thespians Nov. 15-17 as we present CLUE. Show times are Friday at 7:30; a special Saturday matinee at 1:00, and a Sunday matinee at 2:00. Tickets, $8.00 for adults and $6.00 for students and seniors, are available at the door or from any cast member.

Whodunnit? You'll have to wait and see!
