Math and Science National Honor Societies are now accepting applications for new members for this school year.  The applications are on the OHS website in the “quick links and forms” section under content/special honor society tab.  Ms. Adams and Ms. Watson will be accepting these applications now through October 26th by 2:30 pm. If you have questions, please see Ms. Adams for Science National Honor Society in room B115 or Ms. Watson for Math National Honor Society in room A203.

Meritorious service hours are due to B111, Mrs. Sutherin, within 2 weeks of the completion of the activity. If the activity is ongoing I need a meritorious service sheet each month.  Forms can be found on the OHS website homepage.


It’s not too late to join the Future Teachers of America Club here at Oakdale! Monthly meetings include doing fun activities like hosting guest speakers, organizing the book drive, helping with Teacher Appreciation week, and more. You don’t have to be interested in being a teacher to join and the club is flexible with meeting dates of other clubs! Contact Mrs.Kenney or Caroline Paroby if interested. 


The annual Oakdale High School Poetry Out Loud competition is coming up this November. You will need to visit the Poetry Out Loud website to review the rules and memorize two poems to perform. You will have a chance to move up to regional, state, and national levels and win prize and scholarship money.  If you would like to participate, please see Mrs. Showalter in room A208 to get more information and details about practices.

Are you looking for a way to earn your class more points for Spirit Week?  Then bring in non-perishable food items and place them in your class’s box on Main Street before first period Monday, October 15th through Thursday, October 18th.  Each item earns one point for your class and supports a worthwhile cause.

Congrats to the Boys Cross Country team for winning both the Varsity and JV Cactoctin Invite on Wednesday, October 10.  The Varsity boys had all seven runners come in the top ten for the meet. 1st place for the meet was Kyle Lund as he destroyed the other schools with a very fast pace!!!  Nick Stokes came in second for the team followed closely by Josh Milliken, Charles Parrott, and Spencer Buckwalter. Great job to the Varsity guys!
