5th grade families, this is a reminder to please fill out the 5th Grade Band Sign Up form (https://bit.ly/SPS5thGradeBand
) by Wednesday, September 28th regarding which instrument your child will be choosing to play in band this year. For LOTS of information about the beginner band program itself and how it benefits students, please see the linked flyer at https://5il.co/1ig9p
Reminder, online volunteer training is being held tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 PM and again next Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 PM. Potential volunteers only need to attend the training once in the entire time their child is at OCRS; you do not need to attend the training annually. Please see the email from Mr. Barrette for the link and joining information for each training session. We're looking forward to having parents volunteer at OCRS!
Families learned more about their children @ the elementary open houses last week. Students wrote about themselves, their dreams & goals, & their families. Thank you @SmithfieldSchls families for the great turnout. Our students, faculty & staff were excited to share.
Healthy meals are served at each of our 5 schools & include fresh vegetables & fruit. All Chartwells meals - brown bag & hot lunch - are nut-free. The new kitchen equipment & smoothie bike will be unveiled Thursday @SHSSentinels @SmithfieldSchls
There will be continued delays in several bus routes through the end of this week affecting several routes. This includes Routes 16 and 17. Durham will be doubling up driver runs in both the mornings and afternoons. Thank you.
Our SHS Cheerleaders are selling snacks & beverages at the high school all day today to raise funds for the program @SHSSentinels @SmithfieldSchls
