We are excited to welcome “back” Coach Clark Humphreys as our guest speaker for the breakfast. Coach Humphreys is the associate head coach for the women’s track and field team at Vanderbilt University. He is also an OHS alumnus, Class of 1988. We hope to see you at the breakfast for a morning of inspiration and fellowship.


  • This week, we are excited to welcome three administrators and teachers from our partner schools in Jamaica, Paulette Chedda and Florette Francis from Albion Primary School and Eneka Nesbeth from Ebenezer Primary School. While visiting our school, they will observe numerous classes, teach a few lessons, present to faculty and staff and visit KIPP Kirkpatrick School. We have worked with these schools for more than four years and look forward to strengthening our ongoing partnership.

He will share Little Elliot’s newest adventure, Little Elliot, Big Fun. To purchase a copy of this book or any of the other Little Elliot books to be signed by the author, please click HERE to download an order form. Return the completed order form, along with payment, to your child’s teacher by this Friday, October 28.
