October 28 – As we conclude the first quarter of the academic year, we want to thank our students and parents for joining us during fall Family Weekend. We hope you were able to conference with teachers about your student’s individual progress in the first quarter of the school year and enjoy time with other OVS parents as part of our evening events. It was, from our perspective, a wonderful weekend in which our middle and high school families came together for a community dinner at the Upper Campus on Friday night, followed by musical performances, and a full line-up of Saturday events.
On both campuses, we celebrated student achievements in academics, equestrian, athletics, and fine and performing arts. Our elementary and primary students took center stage for our own production of The Boulevard of Broken Megapixels. Thank you to Mr. Andy Street for pulling together yet another wonderful performance that showcased the talents of our youngest students.
In the coming week, our 8th graders will travel to Washington D.C. for an exploration of United States history. Half the senior class will submit college applications for their top choice schools through early action and early decision admissions. And our cross team teams will head to the league championships in hopes of earning a CIF berth.
Check out the website calendar for detailed information about other campus events, outdoor trips, and more. Please see pictures from Family Weekend on the OVS website; more will be added next week from the elementary play.
