Dear Students and Parents,


Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!


It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Onalaska High School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the high school where I graduated from and that has such long lasting traditions.  I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Onalaska High School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure success.


Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by OHS by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives, the use of data to drive instruction, and provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner in order to continue to increase student achievement.  The goal is to provide academic experiences that are rigorous, relevant, and help build relationships while making real-world connections.


Although academic success is key, I encourage students to be involved in school activities that will better prepare them for success after high school and create lasting memories.  It is important that each student find a sport, activity, club, and/or service area of interest that allows for participation in our school community. 

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

 

Best Regards,

 

Dracy McCoy

High School Principal

Onalaska School District

You will hear staff and students talk about The ONY Way.  The ONY Way is a set of five traits that we hope students will learn and instill while at school and in the community.  The five traits are:

GRIT - To have courage and resolve; strength of    
            character

PASSION - To approach life with a compelling 
                    enthusiasm

VISION - The ability to plan for the future with 
                imagination and wisdom

FAMILY - All students are part of the Onalaska family.                 
                We will accept each other for our differences, strengths and 
                weaknesses

SERVICE - The action of helping someone without the
                    need for anything in return.

These traits are important life qualities that every person needs to be a successful adult.  

As a parent/guardian and community member, please help support The ONY Way!
