The Onteora High School Parent Alliance is a group of parents and administrators who meet four or five times during the school year. The goals of the group are to facilitate an exchange of information among parents, teachers and administrators, and to provide parents who wish to remain involved in their children’s education beyond the PTA years a forum for doing so.

Congratulations to the Onteora High School Science Olympiad team, which earned 38 medals in an excellent team effort that led to a 3rd place finish out of 30 teams at the Mid-Hudson Regional Science Olympiad Competition on February 4. The team earned the right to compete at the New York State Science Olympiad Competition next month in Syracuse at LeMoyne College, where the best 54 Science Olympiad teams in New York will put their skills and knowledge to the test.
“Your heart grows wildflowers.” “Your laugh is contagious.” “Promote equality.” These are just some of the positive, uplifting messages recently displayed by the High School Student Government on a “Post-it Wall” located in the Route 28 hallway of the school. The wall provides a space for students to both write kind words, exemplifying Onteora’s commitment to tolerance and inclusion, or take a post-it when in need of comfort.
