News, Musings & Thoughts

Headmaster’s Note:

Today, Dr. Melton and US English teacher, Alli Minch, made a presentation to the board of trustees on what we do in our college guidance program in grades 9-12. They created a power point, which I have shared with you after my comments. They brought along to help out two students, seniors Iris Poh and Maia Morgan, as well as former CSA chair and parent, Kirsten Frazer. The board and I were impressed by the personal testimonials as well as the thorough and comprehensive work being done to help our students make the wisest college choices possible. The goal is to help them find the best fit given their talents, interests, and personal biases. In addition, Alli and Josh shared stories of how they keep touch with our alums, tracking how they are doing and how satisfied they are with their college choices.  Because of our size, our faculty are able to get to know each student very personally, and consequently, our guidance is much more strategically specific to each one. My kudos to Josh and Alli, as well as all the teachers who are involved, for making this step in life so meaningful. Go Upper School!



OHS College Advising Program



Students of the Month


High School: Samantha Kasitz

Samantha was nominated because she has stepped up a lot this year in terms of advisory; she was a key player in guiding the Blue Jays to victory through her leadership! Sam also helped with Student Council and put together the games for Halloween, including buying the supplies.  In XC she has demonstrated her leadership skills as a captain, and is always going above and beyond. She is hardworking and diligent in her studies. Congratulations, Samantha!

Middle School: Nora Bissonnette

Nora was nominated because she has established herself as a student that makes learning a priority. For our class exam, she was preparing and helping other students find the answers on the study guides- going far above and beyond what was expected. She comes to class each day prepared and ready to learn, often asking tough questions that show great analysis. She is a wonderful, caring and critical thinker! Congratulations, Nora!
