ILMEA Auditions are this Saturday Oct. 7 at Jefferson High School in Rockford. Due to 19 students being scheduled in the early morning and 30 students being scheduled in the afternoon, we have decided two busses would be more convenient for our students and families.  If your student has an AM audition time, he/she will ride Bus 1.  If your student has a PM audition time, he/she will ride Bus 2. If you would prefer to drive your student to/from ILMEA auditions, please email Miss Sheridan ASAP.

Finally, your student should bring the following to ILMEA:

OHS held their annual fall service day on September 29th. Below are some pictures from some of the sites. Keep up the good work!

OHS Fall Service Day 2017

On Thursday, October 5, 2017, the 9th grade students will be participating in the administration of the PSAT 8/9 test. The purpose of this test is to establish a baseline for students as they proceed through Oregon High School and prepare for college and career. The PSAT 8/9 is also a practice test for the SAT test that is a state graduation requirement taken during the Junior year. Ninth graders will report to the OHS gym on 10/5 to start their day. They should bring two, #2 lead pencils and a calculator. If you have questions, please contact Jim Turffs at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Opportunity for current juniors and seniors, planning on going into teaching.

With enrollment in educator preparation programs declining across our state and country, the teacher shortage has a potential long-lasting impact on our children’s future. The School of Education at Millikin University has mobilized to meet this challenge with a focus on promoting Education as a viable, exciting, collaborative, and rewarding profession.

We are hosting our Annual Conference for Tomorrow’s Teachers held at the brand new University Commons on Millikin’s campus on Thursday, October 26th, 2017 from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm. Attendees will actively participate in best practices in the field of Education, including ESL, STEAM, and Literacy activities, and attend an education class in the Education major of their choice: Art, Early Childhood, Elementary, English, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Science, Social Science/History, or Spanish Education. Attendees will also tour a Professional Development School partner to see Project-Based Learning and Project Approach instruction in action.

Juniors or seniors in high school may begin the conference early by checking in on Wednesday, October 25th after 5:00 pm.

Because attendance at a professional conference shows their commitment to education, we are awarding a $500 scholarship to Millikin University to all conference attendees.
