  • Starting next week on Tuesday, March 10th, OMHS will be offering SAT Prep after school.  The class will run 2 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Juniors interested in signing up should see Mr. Davis in room 511 at the back of the school for an application.


  • Studies have shown that attending a music concert and listening to live music yields a much greater enjoyment to the listener. It also has a much greater ability to reduce stress than simply listening to a recording. So take out your ear buds, turn off the rattling stereo in your Honda Civic, and attend the Axes and Ivories Guitar and Piano recitals on March 11th and March 25th at 7:00pm. If you choose to attend, your soul will thank you!!!

Tickets are $70 each and can be purchased anytime online or in Room 809 daily after school until 3pm. Please remember - If your family file is not completed, you can not purchase a ticket.
  • The Merit cart, containing gift cards, electronics and much more will be open on Monday during all 4 lunch shifts. Your Scorp Merits can be used to purchase any items available on the Merit cart. Please bring your Merits to lunch and remind teachers to give them out for your respectful, responsible and ready behavior.


  • Knowing Your Rights as an Immigrant: Regardless of your status as an immigrant, you have guaranteed rights under the constitution. For example, if an immigration agent asks if they can search you, you have the right to say no. Agents do not have the right to search you or your belongings without your consent or probable cause. To find out more, on Thursday, March 5th, Speakers From CASA de Maryland & FIRN will discuss the immigrant rights we should all know. Come to Ms. Shiah’s Room # 200 at 2:15. All are welcome!  Sponsored by Escorpiones Latinos.
  • Conozca sus derechos como inmigrante: No importa su estatus como inmigrante, tienes derechos garantizados bajo la constitución. Por ejemplo, si un agente de inmigración le pregunta si puede registrarlo, tienes derecho a decir que no. Los agentes no tienen derecho a registrarlo a usted ni a sus pertenencias sin su consentimiento o causa probable. Para obtener más información, el jueves 5 de marzo, representantes de CASA de Maryland y de FIRN hablarán sobre los derechos de los inmigrantes que todos deberíamos saber. Ven al cuarto #200 de la Sra. Shiah a las 2:15. Todos son bienvenidos! Patrocinados por Escorpiones Latinos.
