School Supplies for September 2019
Please note that school supply needs vary by subject teacher and grade level. There is no set standard list of supplies your child will need. Teachers will provide a list of needed supplies on the first day of classes.

Students may choose to use a subject divided binder to collect notes and organize their classes. This, or any scribbler/duotang with looseleaf,  and a pen/pencil is all that will be needed on day one of school.

Thank you.

OHS International Student Program

The New Brunswick International Student Program (NBISP), a program of Atlantic Education International, a government of New Brunswick agency, welcomes students in middle and high school from over 20 countries to attend a New Brunswick school for a few months, a semester or for the full school year.  The program provides an opportunity for visiting students to live with a host family, attend classes with New Brunswick students and participate in extra-curricular and community activities so they can develop their language skills and create lasting friendships. New Brunswick students and communities also benefit through enhanced cultural exposure and positive economic spin-offs.

 

The program is seeking homestay families for students arriving in September at OHS. The responsibilities of homestay families include providing a bedroom for the student (not shared), internet access, three nutritious meals/day, and most importantly is welcoming students as part of the family. All types of families including those with or without children are invited to apply. Homestay Coordinator, Larry Wood, will meet with applicants for an interview at your home in order to make the best match for both hosts and students. Hosts are required to submit a Criminal Record Check as part of the application  process. A stipend of $350 is paid two times per month to cover costs of hosting.  Larry  provides support to homestay families and students throughout the year and coordinates monthly activities for students. Interested hosts can fill out an expression of interest form at www.nbisp.ca or contact Larry directly at Larry.Wood@nbed.nb.ca

Principal Welcome Letter 2016-2017

September 2016
 
Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you and your son or daughter to Oromocto High School (OHS) for the 2016-2017 school year. It is my hope that you and your entire family will have a positive and productive year here at OHS. During the school year important information will be communicated to home via letters, voicemail, email and we will post items of interest to the Oromocto High School website. This week information sheets will be sent home with students for your review and return to the school. Please take a moment and review them with your child, sign and return to school. The student Data Collection form is very important as it allows us to have the most up-to-date information to contact you in case of emergency.
 
Communication with the school is encouraged and I would ask that when contacting the school regarding your child that you first contact the teacher and then, if required, the appropriate Vice Principal. You can contact the school at 357-4015(you can also leave a voicemail). By keeping the lines of communication open we can all work together to support your child’s success.
 
Our annual Parent Open House will occur on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 6PM to 8PM.  I encourage all parents and guardians to attend this open house to meet your child’s teachers for this year. After the open house we will have PSSC elections in the OHS Theatre. If you are interested in more information on the OHS PSSC please contact the school at any time.
 
I encourage all parents/guardians to sign up for our PowerSchool Parent Portal. With your account you can see your child’s up-to-date attendance, their historical grades, and current class grades and even see assignments and grades from teachers. This invaluable resource will enable you to have instant access to your child’s progress at school from the convenience of your home computer or web enabled smart phone. For more information please view the Parent Portal information on the OHS website.
 
We are fortunate at OHS to have an excellent and experienced staff that work very hard each day to deliver a quality education to all of our students. As a staff we continue to grow professionally and our school vision is to make OHS a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning. I am very excited to have been appointed Principal of Oromocto High School this year and I look forward to working with you and your child over the year ahead.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Jeff Holder
Principal
Oromocto High School
