“The OHS Block Party was a great success in 2012 and we look forward to this year’s Block Party with great excitement,” said OHS Principal Mark Hanson. “Over 700 people attended last year’s block party. Our goal for 2013 is at least 1,000 people. The Block Party is designed to be a family night, with a great supper, lots of activities, a chance to meet the OHS staff, and win some great prizes. I urge all OHS families to attend. The event is free and open to all OHS students and their parents.
