Wow! Welcome back to Ohio Hi-Point. It’s been quite an eventful first week. Before I jump into the “Hi-Lites” Friday Recap, here’s a look at some activities our students did this summer.
Six OHP Students, along with 240 students from around the state, participated in the 2012 SkillsUSA Summer Leadership Camp in July at Nelsonville, Ohio. During the week they competed in leadership and teambuilding competitions and volunteered for community service projects, including painting 17 houses in Glouster in just six hours. The power of teamwork and being able to make a difference through community service was the core message our students walked away with at the end of the week.
Six Culinary students experienced Cooks Camp at Tri-Rivers Career Center, learning from master chefs across the state. At the end of the week the students prepared an elaborate banquet for families and friends.
OHP’s FFA chapters (on campus and Satellite locations) have been busy over the summer working with county and state fairs, holding community events like Ag Wednesday’s at the Kenton library and painting the Hardin County Beef Barn, as well as networking with Agricultural leaders.
Also, during the summer, Ohio Hi-Point underwent a big website change. Think Brand Studio in Mt. Vernon worked on designing and developing OHP’s new website over the course of the past 6 months and we just launched the new site on Monday. Let us know what you think about the new look and feel of the website!
So now that summer is over. What is everyone up to? They’re all here! OHP is once again booming with our high school students back on campus.
On Tuesday, our Juniors experience their first ever ‘Wow Factor’ Day where students dived head first into their program labs, worked with their hands and learned about teamwork, communication and innovative thinking.
Our Seniors joined the mix on Thursday to make a full high school building. To celebrate the new school year, OHP hosted our first ever Movie on the Hill. Students, parents and staff were invited to watch the Blind Side on Campbell Hill Thursday evening and we had a great crowd! Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a smashing success.
So that wraps it up for week one of school. We’ve ready to launch into the school year and help our students succeed.
