Spotlight on the Arts
What would it look like if mankind returned to the moon today? That was the question posed to student artists from across the country in the 36th Annual Student Aviation Art Competition presented by the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.
Oakwood Junior High student Josh Cahoon placed second for students in grades 7-9 for his artwork, “Lunar Selfie.” Cahoon’s art will be on display at the museum, along with the works of other winners. The OJH seventh grader will also be awarded $200.
This July marks the 50th anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon. It was July 20, 1969 when Neil Armstrong and crew members of Apollo 11 took that “giant leap.”

Testing Schedule - Ohio's State Tests
OJH students will be taking Ohio's State Tests during the weeks of April 8th and April 15th. On each testing date, students will report to school early so that testing can begin at 8:00am. This allows us to finish prior to 10:15 (at which time a 7-period day will begin and follow a 2-hour delay schedule). Tests and dates are as follows:
Tuesday April 9th and Wednesday April 10th - ELA Testing (Grades 7 & 8)
Tuesday April 16th and Wednesday April 17th - Science Testing (Grade 8)
Thursday April 18th and Friday April 19th - Math Testing (Grades 7 & 8)
If your child has a fever or other symptoms of contagion, please keep him or her home. We will work on make-up testing as needed following the standard testing dates.
