We're inviting students (and staff) to celebrate May 4th by wearing their favorite Star Wars themed/related clothing to school tomorrow! Students don't need anything special; they can even wear their OCRS gear if they don't have anything that is Star Wars themed. Star Wars themed hairstyles are also welcome.
The lunch program is offering "Jabba the Pizza Hutt" and "Princess Leia Salad" as options for tomorrow to join in on the fun.
We do ask that students please refrain from bringing in lightsabers or any other props.

We kicked off the "Camp OCRS" Reading Week activities yesterday and we loved seeing students and staff dressed up as campers! Students participated in "Drop Everything and Read" yesterday morning and some classes did some "flashlight" reading together as if they were camping. Teachers have also worked together to decorate the school for this special "Camp OCRS" themed week.
