Principal's Message

Dear OGHS Parents:

 I look forward to this new school year full of hope and promise that each and every child will be a successful and productive member of this ever-evolving world. But we as educators, teachers and staff will need your help and partnership as parents to make this happen. Children benefit greatly when parents/guardians take an active role in their child's education. It has been proven that when students have parental support at home, they enjoy their learning and school life even more. Students' behavior and attitude at school improves as they develop confidence in their road to becoming life long learners and contribute to our community.

 I strongly believe that all parents want the best for their children and I believe that all parents want their children to be successful in all their school endeavors. However, because of work and family demands, often there is little "free time" for many parents to spend with their child once the school day has ended and children return home. Orange Grove High School is committed to continuing the support while your child is here at school. We seek to provide a safe and welcoming environment that is conducive to student learning and student success in all their extracurricular activities. The first step in this process is to build and to maintain a strong working partnership with you by keeping the doors open for parent conferences and school visits.

 Please continue to monitor our school's website for additional information such as school schedules, student information, school sports schedules, club activities as well as other pertinent information that all parents should know for the school year.

 I look forward to sharing more information with you through upcoming school newspaper, parent calls and hope to meet you very soon.

 Respectfully,

 Gil Salazar
