Alright Oakbayers, I understand that you may be wondering “Where’s Nutty?”  Well I can’t tell you exactly where, but I can give you this hint:
“I am part night and part light
I am like a game
If you don’t fine Nutty it is a shame”
Good Luck!! 

Connect to Care is a student lead group whose mandate is to start conversations about crucial topics that youth are facing.  We are asking for Advisory Teachers to give students some time to complete the following survey (  This survey is anonymous and we are NOT asking for any personal information that would lead to identifying individuals.  Instead, Connect to Care is hoping to gather information about the issue in order to start the conversation in our school.  

Cst Perry has set up a questions/concerns box at the table in the counsellor center. Please feel free to forward any questions/concerns to Cst Perry in this manner or email her at . Starting in November Cst Perry will be posting her office time at OB High through the morning announcements. She encourages everyone to come by to see her about any questions they may have or just even to chat.
