Academic Announcements

Welcome back!  Hopefully you are off to a great start to the school year.  Please know that you are not alone in this journey.  Our teachers, staff, and administration are here to support you.

 

The deadline to request a schedule change is Friday, September 16, 2022.  No requests will be honored after 2:30 PM on 9/16/22.

 

Back-to-School Night will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2022, and will begin at 6 PM in the auditorium.  All parents are invited to join us in the auditorium to hear what is going on at O'Hara and how to help your child(ren) have a successful school year.  Mr. Connor and Mrs. Vice will share some important information with you.  Following this presentation, we will hold ten minute class sessions so that you may meet your child(ren)'s teachers and learn their expectations for the year.

 

September 29, 2022, is an archdiocesan professional development day for the faculty.  Students will not have school that day.

 

Students are encouraged to contact their teachers if they begin struggling in any of their classes.  If there is an issue with any class or teacher, the proper protocol is for the student/parent to contact the teacher.  If not resolved, the student/parent should contact the department chair.  Usually these steps are sufficient but if not, the next recourse would be to contact Ms. Kelly in Academic Affairs.  The student's guidance counselor is also an excellent resource in problem-solving any issues.

 

We look forward to working together for a successful year of learning this year!

 

 

2022-2023 School Year

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  We hope you enjoyed your summer vacation and that you took some time to rest and reflect on this past year. High school is such a critical time and there are supports in place for the student body in Guidance, Academics and Ministry. Make sure you take every advantage offered to you as it only helps you grow outside your comfort zone, achieve your personal goals, and further your relationship with Jesus.

 

We encourage you to strive for excellence in your academic studies. Be sure to schedule time each day for homework (reading, studying and reviewing the day’s lessons). Students will be utilizing their school issued laptops in class and for homework. Be sure to use them responsibly and do not get distracted from your educational goals!

 

Your roster was emailed August 17 if there were no holds due to finances, technology, or missing textbooks. The classes listed are based on your spring selections as well as the courses you are required to take and fit into the overall master schedule. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help you. While we would be glad to adjust your roster in the case of an error, because classes are filled to capacity, we are unable to adjust rosters to accommodate teacher requests, lunch preference, etc. Any student who has a NECESSARY roster change must complete the course change request form on the Academic page of the website and email it to [email protected] as soon as possible. Please note that changes to honors or AP courses must have a teacher recommendation or the approval of the department chair.   We are unable to adjust course levels without those.  No requests to change courses will be honored after September 16, 2022.
