Boys' Volleyball Earns Team Academic Award

The Overland High School boys' volleyball team, coached by Diane Swan, received the 2022-23 USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award.

The United States Marine Corps and the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced that 1,332 collegiate and high school volleyball teams have earned the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award this season. This marks an all-time record number of programs honored for their academic achievements. The award, initiated in the 1992–93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale or 4.1 on a 5.0 scale.

Overland boys were the only boys' team in Colorado to achieve the honor. The overall team GPA was 3.437, and this is the second year of winning this award! This is an amazing accomplishment by an incredible group of young men!

Welcome Back to School: Health and Wellness Tips from the School Nurse


Welcome back, students and parents! As we embark on another exciting school year, I want to take a moment to emphasize the importance of health and wellness. As your school nurse, my primary goal is to ensure that each student has a safe and healthy learning environment. Here are a few tips to help kick off the school year on the right foot:


  1. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is essential for staying focused and energized throughout the day. Encourage your child to bring a reusable water bottle to school and remind them to take sips throughout the day.
  2. Healthy Eating: A balanced diet fuels both the body and mind. Pack nutritious snacks and lunches that include fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Limit sugary snacks and drinks to keep energy levels steady.
  3. Regular Sleep Schedule: A consistent sleep routine is crucial for academic success. Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep each night to ensure your child is well-rested and ready to learn.
  4. Immunizations: Ensure your child's immunizations are up-to-date and submitted to the OHS Health Clinic – Otherwise, file a vaccination exemption form. More info HERE. Vaccinations play a key role in keeping our school community healthy and safe.
  5. Mental Health Matters: Encourage open conversations about feelings and emotions. If your child is feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or anxious, don't hesitate to reach out to me for FREE therapy resources.
  6. Physical Activity: Regular exercise helps boost mood and concentration. Encourage your child to participate in physical activities they enjoy, whether it's a sport, dance, or simply playing outside.
  7. Stay Home When Sick: If your child is feeling unwell, it's important to keep them home to prevent the spread of illness. 
  8. Find all things “OHS Health Clinic” by clicking HERE.


Please know that I am here to support the health and well-being of every student. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or if your child has specific medical needs. Let's make this school year a fantastic and healthy one together!


Wishing you all a successful and thriving school year!


Kind Regards,

Brian Kornreich, BSBME, BSN, MS, RN
