Hello OCRS families,
This is our final FULL week of school (the last two days of school are Monday 6/10 and Tuesday 6/11) and we are looking to end this school year strong, continuing to learn even as we celebrate the end of this year.

- Wednesday, June 5th - Tie dye/Rainbow Day
- Thursday, June 6th - Beach hat sun glasses day
