Dear OHS Families,
As we move into February at the end of this week, we also arrive at our 100th day of school, a milestone of great celebration in our younger grades. It is somehow fitting that our 100th Day of School falls on Groundhog Day this year. Just as Punxsutawney Phil looks ahead to predict the changing seasons, our students have also been on an incredible journey of growth and learning over the past 100 days. It's a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on the progress they've made and celebrate the accomplishments they've achieved so far.
This past week we had a dazzling fifth grade winter concert featuring our fifth grade orchestra and chorus, with accompaniment of piano, guitar, and percussion. It was a wonderful night to celebrate the musical learning that has been taking place this year in fifth grade.
This coming Thursday, our fourth grade orchestra takes the stage for the first time. This is an exciting first performance for first-year instrumentalists.
Big thanks to our music teacher and choral director, Mrs. Haskitt, and our orchestra teacher, Mrs. Trombley, for all the effort they have put into developing our students’ interests and skills in music this year. Also thanks to our accompanists, Mrs. Bettke and Mr. Haskitt.
This coming Saturday, 2/3, is the second annual Sweetheart Dance. Big thanks to Rebecca Hasiotis, Marcia Lyman, Livia Gillespie, Eva Elinskas and all the volunteers who are working and will be working to make this night special. I am looking forward to this special night.
Have a great start to February,
