The ONY Way!

GRIT PASSION VISION SERVICE FAMILY


Welcome back Loggers!!

Greetings,

As your new High School Principal, it is my great privilege to welcome you all back to another

school year. Even though we still face some challenges and obstacles, I am very excited to get this year

started, and am confident we will provide a quality education for your student(s).

As most of you may have heard, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Onalaska High School will

begin the school year by distance learning. This means that each student will attend all seven of

their classes for 30 minutes, Monday through Friday via Zoom in the morning. The schedule will

be as follows:

First Period: 8:15 to 8:45

Second Period: 8:50 to 9:20

Third Period: 9:25 to 9:55

Fourth Period: 10:00 to 10:30

Fifth Period: 1O:35 to 11:05

Sixth Period: 11:10 to 11:40

Seventh Period: 11:45 to 12:15

From 12:45 PM to 3:30 PM teachers will be available to provide additional support for students via

Zoom, phone, and/or email.

Students without Internet

We realize that once again, some students will not have access to the internet. In these

situations, assignments and materials will be delivered, dropped off, and/or collected on a

weekly basis. A specific plan for this will be determined once these students are identified.

Class Schedule Pick-up, Textbook & Chromebook Checkout Times & Dates

Wednesday, August 26th and Thursday, August 27th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and from 1:00 PM to

3:30 PM, as well as, Thursday, August 27th from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Students may arrive at any of the given times above to receive their class schedules and checkout Chromebooks and/or textbooks. Students and parents will need to visit the high school office first. At this time, your student will receive their class schedule and directed to your student’s “first period” teacher to check out a Chromebook or library to check out textbooks. (Please note: Even students not needing a Chromebook still need to pick up their schedule and check out textbooks)

First Day of School

Please remember that the first day of school is Tuesday, September 1st. Students will begin their

1st period class via Zoom at 8:15AM.

As we move along, I know there will be numerous questions, so please, do not hesitate to contact

the high school. Enjoy the last few days of summer and we will see you soon.

Go Loggers!

With the current events regarding COVID-19 and mandated school closure, it is the goal of Onalaska High School to continue to educate students.

The following are adjustments that have taken place to meet your student's needs:

  • Work has been made available for all classes in two formats- online or hardcopy;

  • College in the High School courses, General Science, and Physics will need to remain as an online format;

  • If your student is enrolled in one of the above mentioned classes and does not have technology access, please email their teacher;

  • Teachers are communicating assignments and expectations with students through students' school email and Google Classroom.

Hardcopy work will begin delivery on Wednesday, March 18th. This process may take a few days, as there are over 220 students to deliver too. If your student has not received an instructional packet by Friday, March 20th, please email me at: dmccoy@onysd.wednet.edu

Hardcopy work will be turned in on Monday, April 27th.

MLKJ Day Assembly

Thank you Mr. Abrahamson and the Leadership Class for a well done assembly; focusing on the true essence of equality and making the topic relatable to our students.

As part of a service project the Onalaska Leadership Council has adopted four kids for the Christmas Giving Tree at the Pizza Girl Restaurant. The students had a great time fundraising and then shopping for each child. It is a great way for our kids to learn about service and to demonstrate The Ony Way! We are extremely proud of our students at Onalaska - they are paving the way for a great future.

Note: One of the groups hadn't completed their shopping spree. They will be done before Friday! Also some of the members of the Council were gone for the wrapping session - they were being honored for ALL-AREA Football and Soccer!

Lewis County

Animal Shelter

The Onalaska Key Club is part of the Kiwanis Service Leadership Program. The objective of the club to prepare individuals to be the most engaged members of their current and future communities. Our club focuses on three components: heart to serve, call to lead, and courage to engage. The Onalaska Key Club plans to do many projects in the areas of service, donation, and advocacy. Our first project with our new chapter included donating and volunteering. Students collected items for the Lewis County Animal Shelter. They delivered the items during conference week and spent time with all the animals at the shelter. They plan to volunteer there once a month helping staff with the clean-up, care, and to provide love to the animals waiting to be adopted.
High School Students and Staff hear from a professional athlete/former alumni, learning about grit, passion, and vision all three components of The ONY Way!
Sabrina Stanley is a professional ultrarunner who specializes in 100-mile mountain races. At 25 Sabrina attempted her first 100-mile trail race, failing in epic fashion at mile 87. After this failure she promised herself, she would finish every race she started no matter what, a rarity in the sport of ultrarunning. Sabrina also decided that she was going to come back to the very race that defeated her and finish it.In 2018 Sabrina was ranked 8th best American. With her 2019 race season she is hoping to be top 5, come January. Currently Sabrina has won the last ten ultra-races she started. Her most recent win was at Grand Raid Reunion, the largest 100-mile race in the world, where she became the first American winner (male or female) in the races 27-year history.
Sabrina was born and raised in Onalaska, graduating in 2008.

Southwest Regional FBLA

Fall Leadership

Conference

FBLA Students attended the Southwest Regional FBLA Fall Leadership Conference October 25, Friday at Lower Columbia College where they learned a great deal from two keynote speakers in business.

Keynote Speaker, Allison Magyar, CEO of Dynamic Events and Hubb, leading software company in the country shared with students her rags to riches journey starting out with Car Shows Nationally to managing Microsoft Conferences to developing her own company. She inspired many Future Business Leaders of America Chapter members in identifying their own inner strengths and except that failure is okay.

Mark Aker was the closing speaker who is a motivational speaker and author on confidence and is a public speaking coach. He shared some advice in building confidence and knowing "who" you are in order to make your dreams come true.

Students met others from over a dozen other schools in the region to help develop their leadership potential and gain insight to their future workplace skills. We look forward to a successful year among the Onalaska team members of FBLA.

College in High School

We have 22 high school juniors and seniors enrolled in our "College in the High School" programs.

Fall term, English, Science, and Calculus were offered. Eight students took two of the three courses offered and two students took all three. They are earning college credit through Central Washington University.

We will soon be offering a fourth course, Political Science. We will continue to seek other courses to offer in the coming years. This is a great opportunity for students who want to earn college credit, but are not attending Running Start.
