Welcome Back To School!

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Osan Middle High School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
  • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
  • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college or higher education

Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

  • Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom
  • Reading with children who need extra help
  • School-wide events
  • Student recognition events
  • Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Imagine a conference room filled with world delegates in an animated debate about a pressing global issue. On the podium is the United Nation's seal and gavel, an on the delegates' desks are placards bearing different countries' names placed side by side with their corresponding flag emblems. This is not the United Nations' headquarters, however. Neither are these delegates natives of the countries they are representing. This is the Model United Nations, and the participants you see in the midst of this serious discussion are but high school students coming from various schools in the school district. Model United Nations simulates how the United Nations' delegates come together to create solutions and make decisions regarding world issues. Through role play, students, with their insights and perspectives, become active participants in the simulated international decision-making thereby improving their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
