OCRS' Got Talent!

We are bringing back an OCRS tradition by having a "talent show" event at the end of the school year! This event is "OCRS' Got Talent!" and is going to be held on Friday, May 26th at 6:00 PM in the Smithfield High School Auditorium. This event is organized by Mr. Barrette and Mrs. LaGreca.

3rd, 4th and 5th graders that would like to perform MUST sign up and complete the online form by Friday, May 19th!!!

Here are the details:

  • The event will be free and open to ALL OCRS families to attend, even if you do not have a student performing. We would love to have lots of OCRS families and friends in the audience!
  • ONLY students in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will be eligible to perform in the event. Students can perform solo or with a group. Performances can be musical, dance, comedy, magic, lip-sync, drama, etc.
  • Students will have a maximum of 3 minutes for their performance and they will need to get their performance pre-approved by Mr. Barrette. This will make sure that all material is appropriate for an elementary aged audience.

If any 3rd, 4th or 5th grade student would like to sign up to perform, please complete this online form. Mr. Barrette and Mrs. LaGreca will touch base with the student and schedule a time for the student to preview their performance for approval for the show.

Final Volunteer Training this School Year

We're going to be offering our last volunteer training for this school year on Thursday, May 18th at 6:00 PM. Like the last two sessions offered on April 20th and May 4th, this session will be virtual to be as convenient as possible for families. You only need to complete this training ONCE during your child's entire time at OCRS and the training takes less than 30 minutes, so it's a very small time commitment.

If you're interested in chaperoning on an upcoming field trip and you have not yet completed Volunteer Training, you need to attend this training AND make sure that you have an up to date BCI (within the past year) in order to be eligible to be considered as a chaperone.

Here is the information to join the virtual training session:
