Landscaping volunteers needed

NJHS Sponsor and OHMS Counselor Amy Turner and Arturo Monsivais, head of the Mane Men, will be leading a service project at OHMS this Saturday morning from 9-11 am. AISD will also have a forester onsite (who contacted us about the need for the project). The main objective is to spread mulch around the roots of the beautiful heritage trees on our campus.

If your child needs service hours for NJHS or scouts, or just wants to help, please bring them (and work gloves, rakes, shovels and wheelbarrows if you have them!) Parents are encouraged to attend with their child to be sure we have enough adults to supervise.

No need to rsvp- just meet in front of the school at 9. Hope to see you this Saturday at 9am- there will be donuts!

Greetings Parents and Families of O. Henry Middle School:

My name is Marlo Malott and I’m extremely happy to join the staff of OHMS as the new Principal.
