Back to School Night is Tonight!

Click on the link below for a blank schedule.  Students were given a copy of this to fill out in class yesterday and were also instructed to take a photo and text it to parents.  I will also have a copy of schedules for people who are unsure where to go.  My office is Rm 319 on the third floor and I encourage you to stop by.

Back to School Night Schedule

See you tonight,

Greetings OSA High School Students and Families,

I enthusiastically welcome all that are new to the OSA community, as well as, the hundreds of students who will be returning to our campus after a well-deserved summer break.  As many of you are already aware, the wonderful Ms. Shahvar will be out on maternity leave for the entire school year and I will be stepping in as High School Principal while she is out.  I am whole-heartedly embracing this opportunity, as I have spent the last 9 years dedicating hard work to help make OSA the school it is today, both as the Dean of Students and as a Math and Science teacher.  An important part of my leadership approach is to be as accessible to students, families, and teachers as much as possible and I strongly encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year.  I can be reached directly at 510 873-8812 or by email at moz@oakarts.org.  In addition to reaching me directly you can check the high school blog at http://teachers.oakarts.org/~highschool for important news and updates.

Over the past few days I have received quite a few questions about the first day of school, so here is some key information that I hope can help get people ready for Monday.

Each year that I have been at OSA has been stronger than the previous year and I fully anticipate this trend to continue.  The opportunities that our students have are unparalleled.  I feel fortunate that we have a gem like the Oakland School for the Arts in our beautiful city and I will do my part to help bring it to bring it to its full potential!

Thank You All,

Mike Oz
