Reference Letters - The students are required to have one reference letter in their portfolio.  The letter can come from a teacher, coach, boss, someone they have done community service for, mentor from a program they are involved in, long-time family friend, etc. (no letters from parents or peers).  Students should request letters at least 3-5 weeks prior to the due date to allow the person enough time to write the letter.

The Activities Record will help outline student accomplishments while at OHS to assist when applying for scholarships and/or college.  Some teachers also request this form when asked to do a reference letter.  The following is a version of the Activities Record that can be typed:

Top of PageOHS Senior Community Connection
All OHS seniors are required to complete a minimum of 16 hours of community service for a local organization.  These hours must be completed by 3/10/17.  This project is a way to teach the students to give back to the community that is often so generous to them.  The organization your child chooses to volunteer for must be approved in advance by the Orland High School Administrators.

Each senior will prepare and give an oral presentation, including a PowerPoint with pictures of their community service, on one of the organizations.  Presentations are after school and will be presented to a panel of judges.  The presentations will begin March 7, 2017 and go through March 30, 2017.
