Chapel Information
Because of the requirements in place this year, we are not allowed to have any guests in the building to attend chapel. We will be live streaming chapel online. Our students will attend chapel in two separate groups. For this first chapel, 5th through 8th grade will attend chapel at 8:30am and Kindergarten through 4th grade will attend chapel at 9:15am (this is a change from the original post due to scheduling conflicts). Both chapel times will be available to watch online. Use the following link to watch:

Reminder: Please have your child wear their chapel shirt on Wednesday. Thank you to Tiger PAWS for purchasing the shirts for students and staff!
Paper Towel Rolls needed
Preschool is looking for empty paper towel rolls for a project. If you have any, you can drop them off in the office. Thank you!
Middle School Fundraiser
The middle school students are starting their Fall Fundraiser. They are selling Koated Kernal popcorn (5th and 6th grade) and Butterbraids (7th and 8th grade). There is a new feature for butterbraids this year with an online store! Go to the following link, and click on the student you would like to purchase from and you can order and pay online! The student will get your order and deliver it to you. Here is the link for that:   https://store.myfundraisingplace.com/bcb4e2ce-6b5d-48fa-a139-f7e2418000a5 

If you aren't connected to a student, you can click on the name "School S" and we will get your order and contact you when you can pick it up. Orders for both the popcorn and butterbraids are due on November 5 with product being delivered on November 20. Any questions, contact Erin Driesen at  edriesen@occhristian.pvt.k12.ia.us.
