Just a reminder that all students and staff are encouraged to wear something GREEN to school tomorrow (10/9) to support Noah, a 5th grader from LaPerche, who was recently diagnosed with Burkitt's disease, a form of Lymphoma. To show our support for Noah and to send him some positive energy, we are asking all OCRS students and staff to wear green. We will take some pictures of the OCRS staff and students and share them with Noah. Please help us to support Noah and his family as they go through this difficult time! #NoahStrong

Tomorrow, October 4th, we're going to be having an "I love the 80's" Spirit Day where staff and students are encouraged to dress as if they were back in the 80's. This could include things like: - Leg warmers - Anything in neon colors - Big hair; spiked hair - Scrunchies - Side ponytails - Track suits - Raised collars - "Double-denim" (jean shirts and pants) We do NOT want any families to go out and purchase anything special for this Spirit Day. We are looking forward to seeing our students' creativity! Mr. Barrette was a teenager during the 80's, so he is especially excited to see some old styles come back to life.

Hello OCRS families, Just a quick reminder that the OCRS Open House is scheduled for tomorrow (9/19) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Come and meet your child's teachers, visit our classrooms, and see the great things happening at OCRS! Students are welcome to come with their family to the Open House, but all students must stay with and be supervised by their family at all times. Also, please be aware that, while the Open House is a terrific opportunity for families to meet their child's teachers, it is not intended to be an in-depth parent/teacher conference or a discussion about specific issues and concerns. Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled to take place on December 5th and are a more appropriate time for comprehensive discussions about individual students. Parents and families should also feel free to reach to individual teachers at any time regarding their child. We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow evening!
