Hello OCRS families,
I hope that all of the mothers that are part of the OCRS community had a fantastic Mother's Day!
OCRS Art Show & Teaching and Learning Night
Thank you to all of the OCRS families that were able to stop by the school last Thursday night to see the amazing art and classroom work that students have been working on. It was great to see you! If you weren't able to attend, we have posted some photos of the students' art work on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pg/OldCountyRoadSchool/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2284588675134469
Thank you to the OCRS PTA for the Book Fair!
Thank you very much to the OCRS PTA for organizing and running the DINO-MITE Book Fair last week. The students really enjoyed the theme and, because it was a "buy one/get one" book fair, they were able to pick up a bunch of books. A dinosaur even visited the Book Fair during Thursday night's Art Show & Teaching and Learning Night!
