  • PreACT (10th graders) November 3rd-4th

     In North Carolina, all tenth-graders take the PreACT. This assessment measures what students have learned in their courses and helps educators identify the information that students still need to learn to succeed in college or a career. OECHS 10th graders are scheduled to take the PreACT via paper-and-pencil format on their on-campus day, either November 3rd or 4th. The makeup test date is scheduled for November 11.

    The PreACT simulates the ACT testing experience by providing students early exposure to ACT test-quality questions. The PreACT is reported on the same 1–36 score scale as the ACT, but PreACT has a maximum score of 35. The PreACT also provides a predicted ACT composite score range.

    The PreACT assessment includes four multiple-choice tests: English, math, reading, and science. 

    If you have questions or concerns about the PreACT, please contact Daveria Hutsell at Daveria.hutsell@onslow.k12.nc.u

    Spirit Week - October 26-30!!

    Hello everyone! Monday marks the start of our Fall Spirit Week. Each day house points will be tallied based on the number of participants. Most house leaders are going to be creating a post or form on their Teams page where you can submit a picture of your costume when you are both in-person and online to make sure everyone is counted. However, your house leaders should be sending out a message to confirm their tallying process. If you are in-person, it is recommended that you go to your house seminar or at least check in to show off your costume! Each student will earn their house 10 points each time they participate.

    There are two options for concepts Monday through Thursday. You can choose to do either option for the day. You can even repeat the concept of Decades day both Monday and Tuesday if you wish, as long as you do not wear the same outfit. You can also wear a Halloween costume both Wednesday and Thursday as long as you do not wear the same costume. However, it is strongly recommended that you wear your Decade day or Halloween costume on the day you are in-person, or choose your best outfit to wear to school if you plan to repeat an option. On Friday you should show your school spirit by wearing any OECHS merch or by wearing our school's colors. There will also be an online house game to participate in!

    Spirit week is a great way to earn house points! I encourage everyone to participate each day, both in-person and online. Remember that your costumes should be school appropriate, but other than that, get creative and have fun! -SGA President, Grace G.

  • School Cash Online

    • SchoolCashOnline Family

      Given the ongoing concerns over COVID-19, OCS continues to look for ways to improve convenience for our families and institute practices which will reduce the risk of transmission of the virus. To do this, the district will be providing our school community the option of a new online payment system, School Cash Online. This system will minimize cash and check payments at our schools and allow parents to make online payments from home.

      Through School Cash Online, parents can pay registration fees, course fees, field trips, yearbooks, spirit wear, athletic fees and more!

      Parents who use School Cash Online have the ability to:

      • Keep track of their child's school items and activity fees.
      • Stay connected by receiving email notifications of new fees.
      • Check their account history.
      • View and print receipts.
      • Pay for school fees any time, anywhere, with a simple click.
      • Easily link and access all students in a household.
      • Make payments using Visa or Mastercard.

      Click here School Cash Online to pay your child's fees online! 

      The School Cash Online service will not replace the current system we have in place to prepay for your student's meal accounts. Pre-Payment for student meal accounts can be made here (link opens in a new window): Student Meal Account Pre-Payment Options

  • Class Rings

    school ring

    Ring order information from Jostens was sent home via The Owl back in early March. Mr. Overby (Jostens representative) also met with any students at lunch (in early March) that wanted more information. Unfortunately, everyone had the stay-at-home order from the Governor before we could accept paper order forms. Those that ordered online were still able to order class rings.

    Jostens has opened their link to our school's ordering site, so students can order class rings again. Click here to order! Hopefully, Mr. Overby will be able to make an in-person visit later in the school year. In the meantime, the Jostens office is open for business 9:00-4:00 (Monday through Friday) to answer questions that kids and families may have. Their office number is 910-675-3886.

    You can go to our school's class ring store site below and order online. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks for the ring to be shipped to your house. Remember, this is optional, but we wanted to make it possible for students that would like to have a class ring!
