OHVA High School Updates


Think About It

We have hit the 9 week mark! Can you believe it? We are 1/2 way done with the semester. We have made it this far because of the collaboration and teamwork we put in for student success. In our hectic school day, we rarely take the time to stop and say THANK YOU to those that we appreciate. Those that have helped us solve a problem or take over a task we lost time to complete. We quickly say a thank you back in an email, but never really tell people how much we appreciate what they are doing to help us or maybe our students.

This week I would like to challenge each one of you to take the time and send one email (or more if you wish) to someone who has helped you since the start of the school year. We often think to ourselves about how thankful we are to have someone on our team, but rarely tell that person how grateful we are.

What You Need to Know

HS Team Meeting today at Noon! – We will be sharing the updated Class Connect Schedule that we will be transitioning to! Make sure you attend!


Evaluations - Please make sure to send your recording and completed rubric to your principal by Tuesday, October 18. Any questions regarding this, go to your principal.

OGT Transportation - As you contact families and students this week regarding their OGT testing, some might voice concerns about the distance we will need them to travel to test. Susie Ebie put together some help documents (attached) to help assist you with those conversations.
