Oak Harbor High School Community Service
for all incoming 9th - 12th graders attending the H. S.
Raising civic minded Rockets is something B.C.S. is passionate about. OHHS Rockets will dedicate one day of learning for community service to give back to the community that gives so much to them. All students in grades 9 - 12 should complete 6.5 hrs of community service from June 1st - September 23rd, 2022. The lessons learned from this 6.5 hours of service will count as your first day of school for the 2022-23 school year. Students in grades 9 - 12 will NOT need to attend school on August 24th as your learning occurred through helping out your community.
