I would like to welcome everyone back to another exciting year filled with excellence in instruction, purposeful learning, student oriented focus, and commitment to all stakeholders. We are excited about upcoming events as well as our academic challenges and successes.
Our instructional focus is to ensure the successful implementation of rigor and relevance, critical analysis and thought, and all higher level evaluative skills, which are necessary in this technology driven era.
iPad implementation has begun with the class of 2018. In addition, we are implementing the Common Core curriculum through professional development opportunities for staff. In order to develop critical thinkers, we are committed to providing interventions and academic challenges that develop talent in teachers and students. ORH is proud of the legacy it has established as a top performing school through partnerships with parents and staff to ensure all student needs are taken into account.
There are very important dates that you can reference on our website, such as the first progress report, which will be issued on September 5th. Please discuss these grades with your student. It is imperative that we partner and stay abreast of testing schedules, homework assignments, attendance, and grades, which can all be accessed through the online Jupiter grading system. I encourage all of you to use this tool to inform you of your child’s progress. Finally, we look forward to an amazing championship season as it relates to all ORH teams and all ORH students who are demonstrating their love and commitment to a sport as they represent ORH. I would like to thank all of you for giving us the opportunity to work with your most prized possession: your children.
