  • This Thursday, February 1, students may wear something that will show what they think the groundhog will do on Groundhog Day (February 2). If he or she thinks the groundhog will see his shadow and we will experience more winter, they can wear something wintry. If he or she thinks the groundhog will predict an early spring, they can wear some fun, warm weather clothes. No swimsuits! Regardless of what they wear, students need to have tennis shoes on hand for recess and PE classes. Students will celebrate the prediction on February 2 in the Dining Hall with hot and cold treats.

  • In memory of Patricia Shockley, a former OHS staff member who loved to knit and taught so many students to do the same, we will collect new or gently used knitted or fleece hats, gloves and scarves for men, women and children in need for the P.S. You Are Loved campaign. The knitted and fleece winter items will be collected in the Rotunda through Friday, February 9. With each item, students will include a special ribbon that says, “P.S. You Are Loved.” These items will be donated to local homeless individuals.

 

  • Consignor and volunteer spots are available for the OHS Spring/Summer Consignment Sale, scheduled for February 21-24. Click HERE for more information and to sign up. Tagging instructions, acceptable items, item limits and all dates and times are provided on the website. Please note, OHS uniforms are now accepted at the sale.

  • No time to consign? You can still help OHS by donating gently used children’s spring and summer clothing, OHS school uniforms, shoes, toys and children’s books in GOOD condition to be tagged and sold by volunteers with 100 percent of the proceeds going to OHS. Please drop your donations in the collection bins in the Rotunda, beginning tomorrow, January 29, through Friday, February 9.

 

The January virtue is PATIENCE. Our verse this week is from Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law.”
