SAT testing day will be this Wednesday, April 5th. All freshman, sophomores and juniors need to report to school at normal time. Your testing room assignments are posted on the bulletin board outside the counseling office.

The cafeteria will be open for lunch after testing for anyone student who wants eat. We are asking that students leave the building as soon as they are done testing and eating. Any student who needs to remain in the building must be with a teacher or in the library.

Seniors ,do not to come to school Wednesday April 5th. You will all be excused by the main office, so there is no need for your parents to call you in. 

Employees at Oregon High School are asked to nominate any Senior who: display qualities and talents we wish every student possessed and/ or who have great grades and are involved in service to both school and community. For the month of March, William "Billy" Paul was nominated and selected as the winner. "Billy is a great student in our school.  He is highly involved in band, choir, the spring musical, bass fishing, and the FFA Program.  Billy is a dependable student.  He gives other students rides to musical rehearsal, maintains a part-time job, plays bass guitar for two church services every Sunday, and often volunteers to help when a teacher asks."- Miss Katie Sheridan, Choir Teacher
