Dear O'Gorman Junior High Families,
Happy Summer from O'Gorman Junior High School! We hope your summer is off to an excellent start. We anxiously await the opportunity to educate your child at OGJH.
Here are a few items that may be of benefit to you as we continue into the summer months:
*During the first week of August, you will receive our "Back-to-School Packet". This packet will include numerous items including the OGJH August Newsletter, the OGJH Calendar, Emergency/Permission Forms, and your child's class schedule/locker assignment.·
*Starting in mid-July, the school supply lists will be available at all area stores.
Welcome to Junior High Class
Through our supplemental academic programming known as the Achievement Academy, we are once again proud to offer an optional summer class called "Welcome to Junior High." This class is open to any 7th grade or new student to O'Gorman Junior High School. The class is scheduled to run from August 3-6 with sessions from 8:00-10:00, 10:30-12:30, and 1:00-3:00. You can register for "Welcome to Junior High", by clicking here. Here is a brief description of the course:
Meet new friends, practice your locker combination, walk through your class schedule, meet some of the staff, and review some of the essential reading, math, language, and study skills necessary for 7th grade! These are just a few of the things that will be part of this junior high readiness class in which indoor and outdoor games, activities, and technology are utilized to assist students in getting acquainted with students from other schools and become more familiar with the O'Gorman Junior High building and routines.
