CLASS OF 2018 GRADUATION INFORMATION

The O'Connor High School Class of 2018 will graduate at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 11 at the Alamodome, and we're excited to celebrate this important milestone in our students' lives!  A mandatory practice will take place at 10:30 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 9:30 a.m.  Students riding a bus to practice must be in the O'Connor Bus Loop and checked in at 9:15 a.m.  Graduates should return to the Alamodome at 6 p.m. for line-up in their caps and gowns.  See the following map to show a new area for graduate drop-off between Lots B & C for the ceremony only: Student Drop Off Map.  After drop-off graduates will use the walkway towards the loading dock to the Southwest Tunnel.

As seniors prepare for graduation, here's a list of important things to remember:  Graduation Check List.  For the ceremony, the District produces a listing of all scholarships that have been awarded to O'Connor seniors.  While the deadline to be included in this publication has passed, it's not too late to have the number of scholarships awarded and one scholarship announced at Graduation.  To do this seniors must complete the senior scholarship form and turn it in at the Counselors' office as soon as possible.  Seniors should include all scholarships they have been awarded, no matter if they will use them or not.  Find the form here: Senior Scholarship Form.  Additionally any student enlisting in the military upon graduation can have that announced by bringing a copy of their enlistment papers to the principal's secretary. 

For those families and friends attending the ceremony, tickets are not required.  Parking is $20 cash only in Lots B and C while Lot A is reserved for handicap and permit parking only.  See a parking map here: Alamodome Parking.  For the 7 p.m. ceremony, doors will be open one hour before.  Please remember that all in attendance will go through a security check with wands and only clear bags are allowed as indicated here:  Clear Bag Flyer.  On the night of June 11th, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the NISD website for those unable to attend.  The link will be posted on the NISD website the day of  the ceremony.  Families and friends can also purchase a ceremony DVD using this form: Graduation DVD.  

Congratulations O'Connor High School Class of 2018!

 

Campus & District Summer Programs Available to Retrieve & Accelerate Credits & Prepare for EOC Retesting

O'Connor High School and NISD are offering summer instructional programs for students who are behind in credits or working to get ahead to make room for other courses, have failed a course, or who still need to pass one or more STAAR End of Course tests to graduate.  All O'Connor-based programs begin soon.  Students who qualify to retrieve or accelerate certain credits can register for OHS Summer Credit Retrieval (information flyer and application HERE) which begins Tuesday, June 12, with their counselors.  NISD Summer School will be offered at Marshall High School starting June 18 through August 8 and will offer a wide variety of courses for both students who need to make up credits or who wish to take an elective to make room in their O'Connor schedule for other courses.  A full list of courses with the summer schedule and costs is available HERE.  Note that O'Connor students can avoid long lines and secure their spots in summer school courses by completing registration with their counselor and paying the OHS Bookkeeper by June 1.  Finally, students who still need to pass a STAAR End of Course test previously taken should plan to attend Accelerated Instruction, a program designed to especially focus on prepping for the June EOC Retest.  Accelerated Instruction begins Monday, June 11.  A letter with preliminary End of Course tests results was distributed to all students who tested this spring on Wednesday, May 29.  Based on that information, students who did not pass should sign up for Accelerated Instruction to prep to restest. Information is available HERE.  Transportation for summer programs at O'Connor is available based on this schedule: SUMMER BUS SCHEDULE.  EOC Retests will be given on our campus June 25-29 beginning at 8 a.m. according the following schedule:  English 1 - June 25, Algebra 1 - June 26, English 2 - June 27, Biology - June 28, US History - June 29.  Contact your student's counselor for more information or assistance registering for any of these programs at 210-397-4832.
