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.

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.
