·         Are you graduating this year?  College applications are open.  Apply directly to apply today- apply before Feb 1st.


·         Thank you to all staff and students who have currently donated to our Buyout and Fundraiser for Julia Cawse.  For those who are not aware of Julia’s situation, Julia Cawse was on her bike and struck by an SUV travelling 20 km over the speed limit.  Julia suffered from many life threatening injuries which left her unconscious for 9 weeks.  It took Julia nearly a year in rehabilitation to get herself ready to move back home with her family.  The bike accident was one of the worst in 2018 and Julia defied the odds by surviving.  The boys volleyball buyout game for Julia is today.  Those with a ticket are to come to the gym, with their ticket, at the start of period 5.  Although we only have a few tickets left, everyone is encouraged to donate to Julia’s rehabilitation fund.  All the money goes towards making her home more wheelchair accessible so she can live her life with her family.  Let’s get ready to cheer on the boys volleyball team.


·         Yesterday the OTHS Cross Country team participated in GHAC held at Hilton Falls.  The team competed exceptionally well and many students had person best time.  Shout out to Emily Dilauro, Josh Pitts, Julianna MacNeil, Jennifer Dryden and Sawyer Bovingdon who finished first for OTHS in their respective divisions.  A special shout out to Emily Dilauro and Sawyer Bovingdon;   the OTHS Cross Country team Jr and Sr Athletes of the month.  Thank you to all students who participated and thank you to Ms Jones, and Mr Palmer for coaching the team this year.


·         Yesterday the OT Jr Football team hosted the TA Blakelock Tigers.  Once again the Red Devils dominated in every aspect of the game.  Russel Weir threw 3 touchdown passes, 1 to Connor Andritsakos and 2 to James Birchenough.  On the ground Ryan Keyes and Nicolai Basen each scored touchdowns.  On defense the Devils held the tabbies off the scoreboard until the final minutes in this 34-14 victory.
