Ony Track Coach Hoppie, Takes 3rd in WORLDS.
Congratulations to Carla Hoppie for capturing 3rd place in the World! (yes the WORLD) in the 2018 World Master Athletic Championships. The event is held in Malaga, Spain. Carla  medaled in the Heptathlon which consists of 7 track and field events.

As you know Carla is Onalaska's track coach and she clearly demonstrates that you are never to old to compete. What a great way to validate the PASSION pillar in The Ony Way!  Carla is also one of our outstanding para-professionals, and still finds time to be OHS' concession manager!

(you can read more about what happened here -

The cheerleaders presented the gifts and cards to Beau's family on Friday night at the football game against Wahkiakum. There were many hugs and tears. Beau Carlson is still in the hospital after his injury, but his dad, sister, and twin brother were at the game. The family asked that we please pass on their gratitude, as the gesture meant a lot to them.

Remember September 11th, 2001.

sept 11
This year will mark the 17th remembrance of September 11th, 2001. For the past sixteen years, Mrs. Richardson has been teaching her students to pay their respects to all the souls that were lost on that tragic day.  America was under attack. Ms. Richardson wanted her students to make flags that day to show their love for their country and to do a project that would take their minds off of the hate, fear, and loss of hope that Americans were all feeling.

sept 11 2
What was a project for that week in 2001, has now turned into seventeen years of never forgetting that terrible day on September 11th. She wants her students to always remember the lives that were lost, and to always be proud to be an American.

Ony Aquaculture Off to Fast Start.
OHS Aquaculture students work alongside Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife staff to remove the adipose fins on 35,000 Steelhead. The removal of the  adipose fin is a way to distinguish between hatchery and wild fish. Students worked for 2 days to handle each and every fish, moving by hand nearly 1000 pounds of fish. Most of the steelhead were kept at the hatchery to be released in April 2019 at a larger size, but a few were released into the Newaukum River yesterday.

This operation is a great opportunity for students to work with potential employers, work as a team, and develop leadership skills.
