Special thanks to Computer Aid, Inc. for providing the field trip and also the Summer Celebration program for our students!
Thank you to all who helped make the O.L.H.C. carnival a success by attending or volunteering. A special thanks to everyone who participated in Rothrock’s “Drive for the Kids” School Fundraiser. We achieved our goal and that means additional $$$ for our school. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
