ORHS Community Member,

Welcome back and Happy New Year Pioneers!


This is our first issue of the Pioneer Express since the new year began so I hope it finds your 2023 off to a fantastic start! Please remember that report cards are available on Skyward and I also hope that all of our parents/guardians will review their student's grades with them over this long weekend if they have not already done so. In these issues we always publish our tutoring schedule as a reminder that free tutoring is available to any Oak Ridge student needing extra help if their grades are not quite where they should be. Please take advantage of this service if it applies to you or your child.


For next week, there is no school on Monday given the Dr. MLK, Jr. holiday and there will be no early release on Wednesday as part of the instructional time needed to be made up for given the pair of hurricanes we experienced during the 1st semester. Please plan accordingly.


As we are only 13 days into a new year, I trust that all of our Pioneers have given some thought to their goals for this 2nd semester and for 2023. The key to achieving goals always boils down to the actions you take daily. Moreover, hopefully you have set out challenging targets so you will not lose interest. Average or simply "realistic" goal setting may not get you to where you want to be. Your goals should be equal to your potential.



I hope to see you at tonight's home basketball game vs. Jones and enjoy the MLK, Jr. holiday. Thank you for reading.


In Pioneer Pride,
Mr. Alvarado
