Hello OCRS families,

As we enjoy this long Martin Luther King Day weekend, let us take some time to remember and reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his role in the Civil Rights movement of our country. Below is a video of an excerpt of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech, as well as a link to an article on the Scholastic website about talking to your kids about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Important Information

Be Your BEST at OCRS!"

This week, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will begin to read the book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" to the 2nd, 1st, and Kindergarten students. This partnership is part of our school's discussion and focus on our new school rules:

  • Be KIND
  • Be RESPECTFUL
  • Be RESPONSIBLE

Once all classes have read together, I will send out a link to all OCRS families of the author doing a read-aloud of the book so that families can talk together about what we are working on at school.
