  • OECHS students - Got something on your mind? Don't keep it bottled up inside, use the Owl-tlet!! Suggestions? Drop it in the Owl-tlet! Worried? Tell the Owl-tlet about it! Owl-tlet can be found in Ragsdale Room 105 (the big room). Let us know what you are thinking. We will check it everyday!

  • OECHS announces the election of our new student government. 33 students ran for offices in our first student government. Although interrupted by the advent of Hurricane Florence, the candidates advertised for votes, gave speeches, made buttons and generally stumped for office. October 5 OECHS held their inaugural Election Day. Congratulations to our first OECHS student government!
