Some had perfect attendance, too, which reflected on a star printed on their certificate.
Each parent/legal guardian got a certificate and celebrated with their family members in attendance. A group of our OGHS's NJROTC students and a trio of talented OGHS musicians/singers also participated to recognize their efforts and commitment to their children's education and future.

Our district, along with EUSD, charter schools, and private schools in the city, has partnered with Sandy Hook Promise. Sandy Hook Promise is an organization born from the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary and focused on stopping violence on school campuses. We will be participating in a program called “Say Something,” which seeks to empower students to tell a trusted adult or use the “Say Something” app if they are worried about shootings, violence, suicide, or other harmful acts.
