2020 Latin National Exam
Congratulations to our 39 Latin students who have received their 2020 National Latin Exam scores! We are proud of all of their hard work and dedication. We are happy to announce that four of our Latin students received a perfect score on their exams. These students who received a perfect score are Patrick Burns, Isabella Guerra, Erin Lynch, and Declan Pennese. In addition, on the Latin 1 and 2 Level Exams, eight students received Gold Summas Cum Laude medals, three students received Silver Maxima Cum Laude medals and two students received Cum Laude praise. On the Introduction to Latin Exam, 12 students received ribbons. Overall, 29 of our students scored above the national average on their exams. Optime!
Supporting Small Business
In an effort to support our own as well as those who consistently help and support O'Hara, we want to launch an initiative to list alumni and parent owned businesses (big and small) that we can post on our webpage as well as social media. We want to support everyone in this time and in doing so ensure that we promote businesses owned by members of our extended O'Hara family.

Day of Giving Thanks- May 13, 2020

This day will honor the men and women who have worked tirelessly to take care of others during this unprecedented time--the medical professionals, public safety workers, township employees, restaurant and grocery staffs, postal workers, delivery drivers and countless others who have made a difference.
