The ONY Way!


This is so true!

The Class of 2020, you've got this!

Stay focused, positive and supportive of each other.

We are here for you!

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:

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

If you have questions regarding student work, please email their teacher.

We will be working continuously to meet your student's educational needs. Thank you for your support and patience during this challenging time.

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 

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.

Joaquin Patraca

Quin joined the U.S. Naval North Battalion Sea Cadets. Since he wants to be a Marine, he thought this would be good. He has participated in a few monthly trainings, car washes, 4th of July parade and this 9 day training at Camp Rilea. The training was a basic recruit training.

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Navy League Cadet Corps offer a nautically oriented training program for young Americans, ages 10 through 18. The program allows young people to sample military life with no obligation to join any branch of the armed forces. Through organization and cooperation with the Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps, the program seeks to encourage and aid American youth to develop an interest and skill in basic seamanship and in its naval adaptations, to train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred values in a drug, gang and alcohol-free lifestyle.

Onalaska FFA week

This past week Ony FFA students have been participating in National FFA week!

The Onalaska FFA Chapter spent the week celebrating and promoting their organization through many different events. Monday they hosted a game/movie night in the AG Room with rootbeer floats, popcorn, candy, and fun for OHS Students. Wednesday they ventured to Winlock to hear from the National Secretary who was visiting Washington state from Louisiana.

They also got to compete in the District 3 FFA Basketball tournament, where they placed 3rd! Thursday they held their Pizza Party and served others throughout Onalaska High School as assistants. This event allows them to raise funds to compete at State Convention in May. Friday, a group of students will head to the Washington State EMERGE Leadership conference to learn how to better serve themselves, chapter, and community as leaders.

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.

Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA and Wendy's recognize varsity athletes, from each of the six classifications, who exhibited outstanding performances the previous week (based on nominations). The weekly deadline is the Tuesday before at 12:00 PM. All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the WIAA/Wendy's Athlete of the Week Award. Students may win the award once during any given academic year. Each winner receives a letter of recognition from the WIAA Executive Director, a commemorative WIAA/Wendy's Athlete of the Week promotional item, and a certificate. Winners are announced weekly on the WIAA website and on social media.

The junior, Carmen Cleveland-Barrera, has been dominating the 2B classification in shot put, adding a second place at the Activators Classic Meet at W. F. West. The event included schools from all classifications, and her mark broke the school’s record of 31 years with a throw of 39’8.5”.
