Academic Announcements

Academics: Progress reports will be sent by Monday, March 8, via SchoolMessenger.  Grades on PowerSchool will be updated Thursday, March 4.
 
Course selection will begin later this month.  Teachers are reviewing first semester grades, along with Performance Series scores, to make recommendations for next year's courses.  Students should begin speaking with their teachers and counselor to discuss classes for next year.  We are in the process of finalizing the course catalog and hope to have it posted in the next couple of weeks.
 
If you are interested in a peer tutor through the NHS, please sign up through this link.  The teachers are still the best resources for the classes as they know the material and their expectations.  Sometimes just one session with a teacher outside of the class is enough to clear up a misunderstanding and make the content comprehensible.  Students should consider setting up a time to meet with the teacher for extra help if they are struggling.
 
Students who failed two or more subjects are ineligible to participate in sports and activities for the following quarter.  Please work with your teachers and guidance counselor to develop a plan of attack to be successful.  Keep in mind that anyone who fails more than two courses for the year may not return to Cardinal O'Hara High School.  Working with your teachers now can prevent this possibility.
 
Switching to Full Virtual or Hybrid: If you would like switch your child to full virtual, please complete this form one time.  We will switch your child's status in the system.  When you are ready to switch back to hybrid, send Jen Kelly an email at jkelly@cohs.com to let her know that the date upon which your child will return to hybrid learning.
 
Schoology: Students were emailed information on how to access their Schoology accounts on 9/14/20.  Parents were emailed information to create their Schoology accounts on 10/2/20.  Students must be logged into their COHS email in order to access Schoology and they must use the Archdiocesan Schoology site by going to https://aopcatholicschools.schoology.com.  Please note that PowerSchool is the official academic record and the grades may at times differ if a teacher has not synced the two systems yet or if the teacher only added a grade into PowerSchool and did not include it as an assignment in Schoology.  Please be sure to check PowerSchool regularly for the official grades.  There are times that an assignment will be graded in Schoology but not synced with PowerSchool yet.  Sometimes that will occur because only part of the class was given an assessment and the teacher is waiting for the other half of the class to take it before syncing so that the second half does not get synced as zeros.
