The Holiday choir concert will be next Thursday, December 12th at 7 pm in the auditorium. Tickets will be on sell at 8:15 in the morning and also during lunches. Tickets will also be sold at the door beginning at 6:15 on the day of the concert.
Food Drive- This holiday season we're giving back to the community by taking part in the Cram the Cruiser canned food drive. Each grade level will be competing to see who can give the most to win a fabulous prize. Drop off your non-perishable food items by the cafeteria in the taped off areas with your class number. Anything at all will help an OC family and help your class win. Hurry in with your donations as the food drive ends on the 12th.
NHS is having an animal drive for the Holidays. Support our local Oldham County Animal Shelter by donating needed animal goods such as dry dog and cat food, toys, dish and laundry detergent, bleach and tall garbage bags. There are also more items listed on the posters in the hallway. Bring these items to your 5th period teacher for NHS to collect, the class that donated the most wins cookie cakes for the class.

Please consider donating to the OCHS PTSA Unfundraiser! We are facing the need to cut $2000 from an already lean $6000 budget. To those parents who already donated at registration, we thank you for your generosity. Many parents said they would like to donate after registration, and now is a great time, Any donation would help. We fell far short of our goal of $20 per family.
Where do your donation dollars go? We support many programs that directly impact OCHS and your child...$1000 in scholarships to graduating seniors, College and Career Nights, teacher and staff appreciation, Pyramid Awards, Reflections Art Contest, Red Ribbon Week drug and alcohol awareness, new technology, summer library program, student awards night, arts and humanities programs...and more!
Follow this link to the Unfundraiser form and support your OCHS PTSA today! Thank you! Kristen Anderson, OCHS PTSA President
