Quote for the Week:

Mr. Tedders’ Notes:

 

Financial Aid Night, Jan 17th @ 6:00pm in the OHS Lecture Hall. 

            Come and get information on what financial support is available and students will receive the packet information for applying for local scholarships awarded on Scholarship Night, May 10th.

 

Graduation: May 25, 7:00pm @ the Okeechobee Agri-Civic Center

            Each graduate will get 10 tickets to graduation as long as they owe no fines or fees.

 

Report Cards should go home on the 18th

            We will run checks this week to ensure credits and GPA’s are correct. 

 

Skylert Text Messages

            Parents will get a text message Friday, January 19 around 5:00PM asking them if they want to opt in or out to receive Skylert messages via text.  This is the same system I use to send out the newsletters and could be used in the case of an urgent message.

The Brahman Way:

 

Individually we are Unique. Together we are Brahmans!

 

As Brahmans, we will:

 

Model the pillars of P.R.I.D.E. by:

Encouraging Perseverance

Fostering Respect

Expecting Integrity

Demonstrating Dependability

Instilling Ethics

 

Create a community of graduates and lifelong learners.

 

Live as the example we want to see in others.

 

Build a supportive campus environment to grow as a Brahman family.

 

Be of service to those in need, on and off campus.

 

Move Forward and Be Great!
