OFHS WELCOMES FRESHMEN CLASS WITH NEW ORIENTATION PROGRAM

DSC_0309DSC_0287Freshmen students began their first day of high school by participating in a new orientation program designed to familiarize them with the building, their class schedule and the many opportunities awaiting them at OFHS.  Advisors for the many student extracurricular activities set up tables around the edge of the cafeteria to allow freshmen the opportunity to learn more about activities of interest to them.

Following Freshmen Orientation, all students in grades 9 to 12 were treated to a welcome back cookout served by building administrators, guidance counselors and other staff volunteers.  Students enjoyed burgers, salad, watermelon and a cookie prepared by the District’s awesome food service staff.
