Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the PTA General Membership Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 1/8/19 has been cancelled. Information will be sent out to OCRS families as soon as the next meeting is scheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
A few parents are organizing a "Got Sneakers" fundraiser for an OCRS family, The Brady Family, that could use some support. While this is a private fundraiser and not a school fundraiser, we want to help support this cause as a school community.
OCRS will be collecting any gently used sneakers from Monday, 1/14/19 until April vacation. Please bring in your gently used sneakers and place them in the specially designated bin outside of the OCRS Main Office.
Please see the email message that Mr. Barrette sent to OCRS families for more details.
The RI Healthy Schools Coalition and Farm Fresh RI are working together on a program called "Local Food Ambassador" to bring more locally grown food into school lunch programs. Please see the flyer that was emailed to all OCRS families by Mr. Barrette for more information.
