Bee in the Know

Week of June 5, 2022

We've almost completed another school year at Osbourn Park High School, and we're proud of our students and staff for their dedication, hard work, and tenacity throughout the year. We've had numerous challenges, but they've only strengthened us, and I hope that our students will head into the summer and graduation with plenty of fond memories. With the end of the school year approaching, there's still more testing to be done. Exams for our seniors started this past Friday! Exams for underclassmen will commence the following week, please continue to work hard and be kind for the remainder of the school year!

Congratulations, Ms. Allen!

We are thrilled to share that our math teacher and department chair, Ms. Tonia Allen, has accepted a position as Assistant Principal with us for next school year. Ms. Allen has demonstrated leadership in and out of the classroom and we are excited to have her join our administrative team in the fall.

Loans and FAFSA are not included for this survey. Final deadline for any submissions to be calculated into our school total is June 6th!

    On June 7, after exam dismissal at approximately 10:45am, we will honor our Seniors who earned Summa Cum Laude honors! These impressive seniors who earned a 4.0 or above will be invited for lunch and sweet treats! They will get their Summa medal to wear at graduation at this time. This event is INVITATION ONLY! Students who qualify have already received an invitation via email and a letter at school. This is based on Semester 1 GPA. If you receive a 4.0 after final grades are due, you will be given your medal at Graduation Practice or on Graduation Day.
