Please take a moment complete our re-entry planning survey. We still do not have dates for re-opening, but would like parent feedback. We have added the Department of Health Decision Making Tree information and a letter from the GH Public Health Officer to our website.

It's time for all 11th and 12th graders to take the ASVAB. (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) If students have a score of 31 or above they meet the graduation requirement for testing. We also encourage students to take this test, as it opens another door to the future. (Students are still required to take the Smarter Balanced Assessment in the spring.)
Dates for Ocosta students are October 23 and October 30 at either 8:30 or 12:30. Please RSVP with your advisor. Testing will be socially distanced, masks are required.

Grays Harbor Youth Works in conjunction with the Ocosta Jr/Sr High School After School Program will be offering a virtual open house to find out more about opportunities through GHYW. Grays Harbor Youth Works provides students in Grays Harbor the opportunity to intern and job shadow people in careers that they would potentially want to further explore. Students could earn money and high school credit through this program. The virtual open house is on Monday, September 21 at 6:00 pm. For more information and the Zoom link, please call 360-589-0914. This is a great opportunity for our Wildcat students! For an application got to the After School program's link at ocosta.org.

The Ocosta School District has been awarded $20,000 from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation for the elementary music program. Music teacher, JR Lakey, started at Ocosta in the fall of 2019 and had very few materials to work with. Mr. Lakey is also the executive director of The Garage: Music and Arts Center in Aberdeen.
The district is excited that they have someone with such a vast background in the community leading the music program.

This grant will give Mr. Lakey the opportunity to buy the instruments and supplies to start a music program that can grow into a comprehensive music program district-wide. A bulk of the money will be to used to by Orff instruments, which include xylophones, glockenspiels, and percussion instruments. District Superintendent, Heather Sweet, stated that there are so many possibilities for our students to learn music using Orff instruments.
The district greatly appreciates the support for the arts from GHCF.
