Oak Ridge High School will have an Open House on Thursday, August 25, beginning at 5:15 p.m. in the Food Court. Parents are asked to print their student’s schedules prior to the event from Skyward Family Access.
From 5:15-6 p.m., school guidance counselors will have PSAT sign-up and senior information tables. Many school clubs and organizations will have information tables set up during this time, a press release said. Food and drinks will be sold by the Oak Ridge High School Orchestra Boosters. PTSO will be accepting donations of hand sanitizer and Kleenex for classrooms.
Beginning at 6 p.m., parents will meet in the Auditorium for a short welcome by Martin McDonald, ORHS principal, and the PTSO President. Then, parents will follow their children’s schedule period by period, spending about 10 minutes with each teacher. Hall guides will be provided to direct parents.
Parents are encouraged to take this opportunity to join PTSO at the PTSO Membership table. The majority of PTSO funding comes from membership donations. All money raised remains in the school and is used to communicate important information and dates via newsletters, express appreciation to teachers, fund teacher grants, and make contributions to various academic departments and activities. All donations are tax-deductible, the press release said.
