Spring Portraits

Take advantage of this opportunity to purchase portraits of your sweet students. Kara Chappell Photography will be taking pictures of our students on April 19th and 20th. She will do individual and sibling portraits. Her pictures are beautiful and will be available for you to look at and order on line. Please look in your student’s folder for the flyer that was sent home yesterday. 


Now that spring break is over let’s get busy and work to raise donations for our Jog-a-thon!  Before spring break your student came home with a white envelope that contains  all the directions you need to start getting donations for our annual Jog-a-thon fundraiser.  Please help your student to send letters, email or make phone calls to relatives and friends to tell them about the Jog-a-thon and ask for a donation. Let’s get this Jog-a-thon going! The rewards are waiting!!  Thank you parents for your support with this. 

OHCS Spring Auction
Have you checked it out yet??? You can begin viewing the items that have come in so far for the auction at  The Spring Auction is the largest single fundraiser that helps to keep tuition costs down at OHCS. You can help right now by spreading the word or donating an item. Mark the dates for May 21 and 22 to go online and bid for that gift for yourself or someone else. If you have a donation or questions, please contact Kathy Miller at 360-632-9155.

Friends and family of OHCS that own a business, we are building our online auction website. For $30 you have the opportunity to buy a business card size ad. We are expecting over 1000 people to go to our website so this would be great advertising for you!  Please drop off your business card and pay in the office. If you wish to donate an item or service, please contact Kathy Miller at 360-632-9155. Thank you!

OHCS Annual Society Meeting

The Annual Society Meeting that approves the school budget and votes in new OHCS trustees will be held May 6 at 7:00 pm in the school gym.  Very likely you signed the membership form that was part of your registration packet for this school year and you are encouraged to attend this meeting.

  FUNDrive date change  
Our drive has been pushed back a bit to May 8. Please spread the word and let’s keep collecting good used clothing, linens, sewing fabric, towels, curtains, shoes and hats. No stuffed animals or pillows please. Please bag your items in sturdy bags that can be tied or closed securely and drop them off in the office. At this point the plan is to collect until May 5 and bring the bags to Value Village on May 8. Thank you for your help!
