OSHS's Tina Salmon named VSCA Advisor of the Year!!
At the annual state conference, our own Tina Salmon was named the Virginia Student Council Association (VSCA) Sponsor of the Year! The VSCA is the oldest student leadership organization in the nation. Each year students nominate sponsors for the prestigious title of Sponsor of the Year. Board members of the Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP), which is the governing body for the VSCA, choose the winner based on letters submitted from the SCA President and school Principal. Projects and activities of each school's SCA are also considered in the decision. We are lucky to have such a strong SCA at Oscar Smith and this confirms what we already know, it starts at the top. Congratulations Tina!!
Snow Make-up Day Schedule Change
Beginning March 17, 2014, and ending June 11, 2014, six additional minutes will be added to the instructional day for all students. These additional minutes will make up for the snow days that occurred on Monday, March 3 and Tuesday, March 4.
Oscar Smith will now be officially dismissing at 3:49 p.m. and the start time will remain 8:40 a.m.
