Spring End Of Course Exams (EOC's)

In April, THS will be administering the state End of Course (EOC) Exams. During that week, students will be on a modified schedule with the EOCs being given in the morning each day. It is very important that testing students arrive by 7:45 as it is a timed test. Non-testing students will report at 10:00. Students who are scheduled to test will receive an email with their schedule and locations for testing.

The testing week schedule found below. Non-testing students do not need to report until 10:00. Any students that do not have transportation at 10:00 can ride the bus. The Cafeteria will be available for study hall from 7:45-10:0

Please bring a CHARGED CHROMEBOOK to school for each test.

Additional information about EOCs can be found here.

Run Hide Fight

Talawanda High School will be partnering with Oxford Police Department to conduct a building-wide active threat drill on Wednesday, April 26th. Faculty, staff, and students will practice the Run/Hide/Fight protocol as part of this drill. As we get closer to this date, we'll share more details about pre-drill information, the drill itself, post-drill activities, and opt-out information/options. For now, please simply mark the date and know that we continue to hold student, faculty, and staff safety in the highest regard!


Jostens will be here on Tuesday, April 11th before school in the cafeteria from 7:15-8:00am to pass out announcements for those who didn't previously pick up. The main office will have the remaining orders after Tuesday morning.

Cap and Gowns will distributed on May 9th during all three lunches. If you are not able to pick your order up during lunch, we will have them in the Main Office. Butler Tech students will have theirs delivered to their respective campus.

Brave Day for Juniors

BRAVE Day at Talawanda High School is our annual family building and diversity event for our Sophomore class, but our current juniors missed it last year due to Covid. The focus of the day is on making students realize that they are not alone at Talawanda, and they have many other peers and adults that care about and support them. Our students are a large part of our community, and by sharing stories, participating in activities, and most importantly, listening, they realize the important role they play with their classmates. Since 2009, BRAVE Day has been an influential part of our Anti-bullying, personal empowerment program at THS and our students come out of this experience better people for it.

The event will take place Friday, April 14th

If your student does not want to participate, they will need to fill out the notification form handed out in their Junior English class next week and return it to the main office or room 301 at THS. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Mr. Zimmerman via email at zimmermana@talawanda.org.


Prom tickets will be on sale starting Monday, April 10th at 9:00am through Hometown Ticketing. Here is the ticket link to purchase. Tickets are $40/each with a limit of 1 per junior or senior. Every junior or senior will use your student ID number as your code. The 2023 Prom is April 29 at the Shriver Center from 8:30-midnight, with an Afterprom to follow at the REC Center, also on Miami's campus. Students will be given a packet with a parking pass for both events and a waiver for Afterprom after purchasing a ticket. If you are wanting to bring a guest the form attached will need to be completed in full along with a copy of the guests photo ID.
