    10th Grade Counselor and 8th Grade Counselor (last names beginning with A-G) 
    Welcome back to Olean High School after a difficult school year in 2020-2021!  Let's try to re-establish positive habits to ensure our success in school.  Make every effort to attend school daily, put in effort in class, study or complete homework at least one hour per night Sunday-Thursday!  All students are also encouraged to get involved in school activities.  We offer many clubs and activities for students at OHS.  Research has suggested that students who are willing to get involved in activities tend to enjoy school more throughout the year!  See me if you need assistance selecting a club or activity this year.
    Sophomores are encouraged to begin exploring career options this year.  I will be conducting some classroom guidance sessions to discuss how to go about finding a path for life after high school.  Looking at personality assessments, interest inventory options, occupation predictors, BOCES tours and community tours to try to help students narrow down some possibilities.  Sophomores can also start looking at potential colleges by participating in virtual or actual tours, exploring military options or becoming familiar with the Cattaraugus County One-Stop Career center.
    As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need help with academics, social-emotional concerns, college/career planning or other issues affecting your success or enjoyment in school!
    Mr. Threehouse
