February – Happy trails from Ojai Valley School! This month might have the fewest days — but it’s loaded with events in athletics, performing arts, equestrian, outdoor education, and academics.
The high school winter sports season has concluded, which means on February 4 students will begin training for the upcoming spring baseball, track, tennis, and lacrosse seasons. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in swimming, beach volleyball and equestrian.
Resident students will celebrate the Lunar New Year with a Chinese-inspired One School dinner at the Lower Campus on February 6.
The Admission Office will host a Middle School Open House on February 13 for families interested in learning more about the curriculum in grades 6 to 8. This event will be held between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Lower Campus.
In performing arts, the middle school will continue rehearsals for the spring musical, The Sound of Music, on March 22-23 and the high school will prepare to stage the winter musical, Mamma Mia, on February 14-15.
After commanding performances at their initial winter events, the high school robotics teams will advance February 16 to a regional competition at Palmdale Aerospace Academy. The two OVS teams enter the event ranked #1 and #6 based on their cumulative scores from previous events.
In the outdoors, middle and high school students will enjoy winter ski and snow-boarding trips to Mammoth Mountain. We also have an equestrian trail ride, a mountain biking excursion, and more outdoor adventures planned for February!
