Good Luck "nago nago"!

After months of preparation, the Natural Resource class burned the pile of brush acquired from cleaning up the forest. We used this time to welcome the entire High School out for smores and hotdogs.

The OHS Skills USA CTSO (Career and Technical Student Organization) spent the day at the gun range. After a proper introduction on law, safety, gun anatomy, and range rules, students put their skills and knowledge to the test. The Firearms Academy of Seattle hosted and facilitated the event. The instructors were all incredible.

Natural Resources students worked alongside a local Contractor and a Weyerhaeuser Fish Passage expert. Students had the opportunity to visit a failed fish passage project constructed in 2016 in the Winston Creek area. After a briefing about fish passage, students went to work. The students dug out the basketball sized rocks and replaced it with sandy soil which would serve as a stream bed and provide a better environment for fish passage. The Contractor and Weyerhaeuser employees were very impressed by the professionalism and work ethic of our students.

Brooklyn Sandridge, WIAA Athlete of the Week.


Brooklyn Sandridge was honored WIAA Athlete of the Week. Although this is an individual honor, it goes without saying that Brooklyn would be the first to say that she has some amazing teammates who are very talented and are responsible for putting her in position to score and shine.


Congratulations to Brylee Yackley as she was honored for WIAA Athlete of the Week. What is impressive is this is the first Onalaska cheerleader to be honored by the WIAA for this award! Way to go Brylee!

Kids Fishing at Apple Harvest.

The OHS Fish Hatchery program and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife sponsored a kid's fishing pond during The Apple Harvest Festival.

Many kids showed up with their parents to fish and see the fish hatchery. The weather couldn't have been better for the Apple Harvest Festival this year.

A big thank you goes out to our partners, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. They donated 400 Rainbow Trout and the great fishing tank for this event.


OHS CTE and Aquaculture students putting in work around the community!

After hard work of community service hours, Onalaska High School Future Business Leaders of America Chapter completed successfully their Animal Donation Drive with over 177 items dropped off at one of three locations which included Brenda's Country Market, Annie's Market, and Salkum Store over a three week period in February and March 2021.


Mackinzie Craney, headed up the Campaign as Coordinator for the Animal Drive and others volunteered included Marissa Rodriguez, Emma Briggs, Addy Ashley, David Locklin, Carmen Ibarra, Rylan McGraw, Ariana Parker, Precious Bordeau, Chloe Johnston-Lester, and Lexi Allebaugh.


The staff at Lewis County Animal Shelter is extremely appreciative of the overwhelming amount of dog, cat food, toys, bowls, grooming supplies, horse and chicken feed, and many other donated items. Once the students unloaded all the items, they were able to view the dogs, cats, puppies, and bunnies up for adoption,


In the future, students will be able to volunteer their community service hours once the Covid restrictions are lifted in a few weeks in regards to Lewis County Animal Shelter. All students as part of their graduation needs to complete their community service hours by their Senior year with an organization. After completing their field trip April 16, Friday to the Lewis County Animal Shelter, many are eager to participate and help out with the service provided to the public there on location.

The weather was amazing and the high school turnout was even better. As part of "The Ony Way" and providing service to the community, the Leadership Council picked up litter along State Highway 508 on both ends of town.

The students and staff participating: Alex Cleveland-Barerra, Jaycee Talley, Mason Ulery, Kolby Mozingo, Gunnar Talley, Callie Lawrence, Baltazar Cleveland-Barerra, Danny Dalsted, Savannah Gifford, Morgan Hamilton, Dakotah Hamilton, Brooklyn Sandridge, Kayla Osbourne, Doug Abrahamson, Mazen Saade, Dennis Bower.

Good job and thank you to the Leadership Council for demonstrating "The ONY Way".
