Bulletin for the week of October 30, 2017


* Still have lots of ID cards, school pictures and homecoming pictures that need to be picked up at the ASB Bookkeeper window.

* The Camarillo Police Department is offering The Parent Project, Monday evenings for ten weeks starting on November 13.  Parents with difficult, defiant, or problematic children are encouraged to attend; however, all parents of middle and high school students will also benefit from this course. The goal is to give parents guidance to help them develop more successful children. The course content consists of methods to address drugs, sex, gangs, poor grades, runaways, and violence.  Additional content includes guidance in gaining children’s compliance of house rules, how to never argue with your child again, and how to use other parents for support. Additional information can be reviewed at www.parentproject.com. This course is free however; there is a $30 fee for the course workbook. Interested parents wishing to register are asked to  contact the Community Resource Unit at (805) 388-5155 with any questions.  Class size is limited so don’t delay and register  at parentproject.com or call today.

* Senior Tribute Ads for the Yearbook: Flyers were mailed to senior parents last week.  Early bird discounts for the ads, ranging from 1/8th page to a full page, apply until November 4th, with the final deadline being December 2. If anyone would like information or have any questions, please contact jeff.jackson@ouhsd.k12.ca.us.

* The Girls’ and Boys’ Tennis Team are holding a fundraiser the month of October in order to raise funds for a new rally backboard. Please bring any “lightly worn shoes” to school to donate. It’s time to clean out your closets. We have bins in the front office and in the girls’ locker room. Eventually these shoes go to families in need. All sizes and types of “lightly worn shoes” are accepted, except golf shoes and ski boots. Thank you in advance.

* Due to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, there have been schools in Texas that have lost so much athletic equipment as well as general school supplies. The CIF Southern Section has asked ALL schools to help by participating in a fundraising effort. The Coastal Canyon League (Camarillo, Moorpark, Oak Park, Simi Valley, and Royal) have adopted two of the poorest sister schools in Corpus Christi.  Camarillo High School athletes will be collecting donations at the last home football game (November 3rd) to give back to Roy Miller and Foy Moody High Schools.

* Parents/Students: Dropping-Off and Picking-Up students before and after school. Please be aware of the posted traffic signs.  There is no stopping on Mission Oaks Blvd. in front of the school except in the designated area south of Anguila Place (the street past the crosswalk). The Camarillo Police Department has received several calls regarding these violations and will be citing drivers. Please be aware that it may be easier to drop off at the lower parking lot near the baseball field versus the main front lot. It is a much larger parking lot with much less congestion.

* Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District is looking for student volunteers:

  • October 31, 2017- Halloween in the Park event- Volunteers are needed to help with passing out candy, pumpkin painting, crafts, and game booths.
  • December 2, 2017-Breakfast with Santa. PVRPD is looking for volunteers to help serve breakfast and bus tables.
