The link to sign up is also below for your convenience. Conferences are for parents AND students to meet with advisors.
Final Exam Info from Danielle
With Finals just a few weeks away, it’s time for students to start planning their finals schedule and thinking about how they will prepare. If your child needs one on one help with making a finals schedule and a plan to study, please let me know or have them email me. Also, if your child has an accommodation to take tests outside of the classroom and would prefer to do that, they will need to let their teacher know and also come talk to Laura or me, so we can add them to the schedule. Since finals can be a stressful time for students, the SST will be having daily “stress break activities” on final exam days from 11-12. Stay tuned for the daily offerings.

Pet Supply Drive
Pet Supply DriveFrom 10th grader Melody: I am running a pet supply drive from November 18 through conferences. Supplies such as beds, toys, treats, and other pet supplies will be donated to animal shelters that took in animals from shelters that were evacuated in the recent fires. Thanks for your help!
Driver Education at OA – More Details!
We are pleased to announce a new opportunity for students to take driver’s education at OA beginning in January. The after school program will cost $500. The program includes the required 30 hours of classroom time and the 6 hours with the instructor in the car. We believe that our students benefit from the face-to-face instruction rather than the online version of driver’s ed which is usually offered.
Class details: Class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-5 p.m. beginning January 7 and ending around the first week of May (no classes during President’s week, EA week, or Spring Break).
The instructor, Moira Motil, is experienced in working with anxious students and students with learning differences. If you would like to sign up, please bring in a check for $250 to Janet by December 16. The balance will be due prior to the first day of class in January.
