O'Connor High School is offering summer instructional programs for students who are behind in credits, have failed a course, or who still need to pass one or more STAAR End of Course tests to graduate. All programs begin Wednesday June 10. Students who need to make up credits can register for Summer Credit Retrieval with their counselors and an application is attached HERE. Students who still need to pass a STAAR End of Course test previously taken should register for Accelerated instruction. Information is attached HERE, and parents can register students by emailing email@example.com. Bus transportation is provided for both programs according to this schedule. Bus Schedule
Last week all O'Connor Juniors received this College Prep information in their English classes. Click HERE to download the letter. To enroll in college-awarding courses after graduating from high school, students must be deemed college ready. This is done using either an SAT score, an ACT score, or the TSI test. Students who don't demonstrate college readiness using one of those methods may also do so by successfully completing a college prep English class or a college prep math class during their senior year here at OHS. To get more information about qualifying scores, the college prep courses students can take next year, and how to enroll, review the letter. If you have questions, contact your son or daughter's counselor at 397-4832. If you wish to enroll your son or daughter in one or both courses for next year, follow the directions in the letter.
Students at OHS will take semester exams Monday, June 1 through Thursday, June 4. For a detailed schedule with times, click the link "Spring Semester Exam Schedule" on the right under Panther Alerts. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will also be early release days for students. The dismissal bell will ring at noon and a sack lunch will be available from noon to 12:30 p.m. for student purchase. Buses will run at 12:30 p.m. each early release day. As the school year comes to a close, it's important that students clear all campus obligations to include fines and fees and return all OHS property to include textbooks, library books, equipment and uniforms. Not clearing these obligations could affect a student's program status or schedule of courses for next year.
The O'Connor High School Class of 2015 will graduate at 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 11 at the Alamodome. A mandatory practice will take place at 8 a.m. that morning, also at the Alamodome. Bus transportation will be provided from O'Connor TO PRACTICE ONLY, and buses will leave campus at 6:45 a.m. Graduates should return to the Alamodome at 2 p.m. for check-in in their caps and gowns. As seniors prepare for graduation, here's a list of important things to remember: Graduation Check List.
The ceremony will be live-streamed on the NISD website, www.nisd.net, for those unable to attend. That evening after the ceremony, O'Connor graduates are encouraged to attend Project Graduation, an all-night drug-free and alcohol-free party. Tickets are currently on sale for $30. Download more information and the registration form here: Project Graduation Registration Form. We're also looking for parent volunteers interested in chaperoning the event that night. If you'd like more information or you want to help with the event, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
