As the vibrant autumn leaves paint our campus in shades of red and gold, we welcome the month of October with enthusiasm and a sense of accomplishment. It has been a busy and productive start to the school year, and I am proud to see our students and staff thriving in their respective endeavors.
October marks the beginning of a crucial testing season for many of our students. Our high school will host the SAT and PSAT assessments on Oct. 11, and ASVAB examination on Oct. 25, offering opportunities for both juniors and seniors to demonstrate their academic abilities and explore potential career paths. To all those preparing for these exams, I encourage you to stay focused, manage your time wisely, and seek support from our dedicated educators. Your hard work and dedication will undoubtedly pay off.
Fall Sports & Activities:
The autumn season brings the culmination of our Fall sports and activities. Our athletes and competitors have showcased their talents on the fields and courts. I want to commend our coaches, advisors, and all the students for their dedication and commitment. We have witnessed exceptional teamwork, sportsmanship, and dedication.. Let's continue to cheer on our teams as they aim for the postseason. Our volleyball team is the defending state champions and are on the path to repeat this year.
Clubs and Extracurriculars:
As we enter the second month of the school year, our school community eagerly anticipates the start of many exciting clubs and extracurricular activities. Whether you are interested in debate, robotics, CERT, Knowledge Bowl, OHSET, art, or community service, our school offers a diverse range of clubs to cater to your passions. Participation in these activities not only fosters personal growth but also builds lasting friendships and memories. I encourage every student to explore the various options available and join a club/group that resonates with their interests.
This October, we also recognize the importance of community involvement. Our school takes pride in being an integral part of the local community, and we actively seek ways to give back. Be on the lookout for volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, and initiatives that allow us to make a positive impact in our neighborhood.
In closing, I want to express my gratitude to our students, parents, and dedicated staff for making our school an inspiring place of learning and growth. As we move further into the academic year, let us continue to embrace challenges with determination and celebrate our achievements with pride.
Wishing everyone a successful testing season, a thrilling end to our Fall sports and activities, and an exciting beginning of school clubs and extracurricular adventures.
