We need your support to help us continue this community project. This year it is North Oconee’s turn to host the event but they can’t do this alone. Help from OCHS parents on the planning committee is essential. Parents have been meeting since the fall, but now is the time to bring together the volunteers.
Nancy Hollett and Diana Beckett are co-chairing After Prom. They have created a Student Advisory Board that has met throughout the fall, and the ideas from the students are re-energizing and re-inventing After Prom. They need more adult members on the planning committee. Parents of all OCHS students, not just juniors and seniors, are needed.
Matt James of Omni Sports will be on campus Feb. 3rd during all lunches for a letter jacket fitting for athletes earning a letter in winter sports. Please access and complete the "Oconee County Letter Jacket Order Form" and bring it with you on Feb. 3rd to speed along the process. If you have questions, check with the coach of the sport/activity you are earning a letter.
There will be a Financial Aid workshop in the North Oconee High School Auditorium on January 27, beginning at 6:00 PM. Valuable information will be presented on completing the FAFSA, applying for the HOPE Scholarship and many other forms of financial aid. A representative from the Georgia Student Finance Commission will be presenting.
