The Green Team
The OHES Green Team is a group of students who volunteer to help with recycling paper and plastics at school. The team is open to students in 4th through 6th grades; together, they help with classroom pickup, guide younger student-helpers, and weigh our school's waste. Under the leadership of the Green Team, the building typically recycles between 100 and 150 pounds each week.
In addition, members help to plan Earth Day events and other programs that raise awareness regarding environmental issues.

The mission of MATHCOUNTS is to increase enthusiasm for and enhance the achievement in middle school mathematics throughout the United States.
MathCounts is open to 6th Grade students and meets once a week during the lunch recess from October to February. It is an opportunity for students seeking mathematics enrichment to work on problem solving. The students work together to solve challenging problems in a fun, friendly environment. There are problems offered each week in the MATHCOUNTS meeting, students have a weekly "workout" to be completed at home, and the students have access to online problems to solve, as well. Twelve students will be selected to compete at a MathCounts competition at the University of Toledo in February.
The advisor is Jennifer Griffin, a 6th Grade teacher.
