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.

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!
