The National Honor Society will sponsor a blood drive on Friday, March 22nd.  You must be at least 16 years old to give blood and have a parental permission form turned in by 15 March.

This week’s student of the week is Reed French.  Reed was nominated by Mr. Lillard because Reed kept a level head during a true emergency during class. He helped with office communication and getting the appropriate people to the classroom. It is young people like this that make teaching noteworthy and worthwhile. Both Mr. Lillard and Mr. Brotherton would like to thank him for his efforts that day. We will never forget his efforts and his adult response. His response was prompt and mature. People like Reed save lives and never want recognition but we would like his efforts recognized. Any other day, Reed asks questions, stays on task, stays after for lecture clarification, and never causes a disruption. Thank you Reed! As this week’s Student of the Week, Reed will receive a cookie from Ms. Clabaugh and one free admission ticket to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go Reed!

Senior boys interested in participating in Mr. OHS should pick up a packet from Miss Mulcahy in B228 anytime this week. If you are not a senior boy but know someone who is and they are interested please make sure to hassle them until they pick up a packet. We need at least 8 boys to run the show.
