Mock Trial practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Ms. Corridon’s room A212 from 230-335

This week’s student of the week is Sofia Carrera.  Sofia was nominated by Ms. Ehrlich because Sofia has been working very hard in Modern World History and taking time outside of class to improve her understanding of the material. She makes her own flashcards for every exam, asks great questions, and is conscientious when completing her work. Her high-level of effort is an example of other OHS students.  As this week’s students of the week, Sofia will receive a cookie from Ms. Clabaugh and one free admission to an Oakdale High School event. Way to go Sofia!
