Mid-year update

It's hard to believe the school year is halfway over, and we haven't had a snow day yet! The highlight of the second marking period in the LMC was the introduction of the Hour of Code to OHS. Over the course of two days, hundreds of students spent a block period in the LMC trying their hand at coding (see photo above). Several volunteers from the community came in to help, including a sophomore Computer Programming major from Quinnipiac, who challenged the students to come up with a career where there wasn't some programming involved. She also talked about how few female students are in her program at Quinnipiac.

Mr. Bilmes has also been helping students and teachers use their Google Classrooms, and we now have a GoPro camera in the LMC that students may borrow when working on video projects. As a member of the Capstone Committee, Mr. Bilmes has been helping students with their Letters of Intent and research papers. We're also anticipating the implementation of our BYOD policy, which will be a chance to help our students be responsible users of technology.

Live at the LMC! continues to be a popular event, and the January event drew huge crowds to watch a variety of student performers.
