We have 2 students of the week: Davit Patel and Camryn Isemann .  Davit was nominated by Ms. Brown because he shows incredible enthusiasm and interest in class. He participates during class discussions frequently and maintains exchanges entirely in Spanish, even when he is discussing difficult topics with unknown vocabulary. He interacts well with his peers and has a positive attitude towards learning. His good attitude and confidence encourages others to participate actively in class, too.   As this week’s Student of the Week, Davit will receive one free admission ticket to an Oakdale High School Event. Way to go Davit!

Camryn was nominated by Mr. Thompson because Camryn regularly tutors his students in a variety of math courses. She is attentive and compassionate and does a fantastic job teaching students. She will also step up and ask students that seem to be doing nothing if there is anything she can help them with. 

Junior meeting during SET on Tuesday to discuss dual enrollment options for next year!

Tonight is Senior Night for the OHS Ice Hockey team! Come out to Skate Frederick to honor our senior players before they take to the ice. Plan to be at the rink around 9:00, as the puck drops at 9:15 pm against Carroll County.
