On Thursday, Feb. 6, O'Connor 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will be taking part in our campus course advising day where their current teachers will be providing information and advising regarding course selections for next school year. Current 8th graders slated to attend O'Connor next year have completed course cards at their middle schools after visits from O'Connor counselors and will have the opportunity to make changes over the next few weeks. To assist in selecting courses, all current O'Connor students, 8th graders and Ag transfers slated for O'Connor, and their parents are invited to the O'Connor Course Information & Endorsement Night Monday, Feb. 10 beginning at 7 p.m. to learn about all of the courses and programs offered at OHS. Teachers, coaches, and directors from every subject area and department along with counselors and administrators will be available to provide information and answer questions. 8th Graders and their parents should plan to start in the auditorium at 7 p.m. for a brief presentation about Graduation requirements and Endorsements before moving to the Course & Elective Fair. O'Connor students and parents can proceed directly to the Elective Fair in the Cafeteria and Gym unless they want to hear more about Endorsements and the course selection process. Course offerings will be grouped in the following areas at Monday's Information Night: Cafeteria - English, Math, Science, Social Studies Internation Languages, Family Consumer Science, Business, GT, AVID & other electives; Library - Ag; Practice Gym - Athletics; Competition Gym - Fine Arts & JROTC
On Feb. 12th-14th, 10th graders will meet with counselors in small groups for additional advising about creating their individual graduation plan and registering for courses. 9th Graders will do the same on Feb. 18th-20th. 11th Graders will meet with their counselors and register for courses Feb. 24-26.
