Christmas Appreciation Project
Kindergarten thru 8th Grade Parents: The Grade Level Coordinator Committee and Monica would like to announce the kick-off of an exciting and voluntary Christmas Appreciation Project. This project provides families with an easy system to gift the OCCS teachers & staff that have blessed your children's lives.

This project does not replace the student gifts already given to teachers & staff which are provided through the OCCS General Fund / student registration fees. Participation in this program is voluntary and the amount of participation is up to you.

Please read the details by clicking here . This form will give you all the directions and make participation easy! When you’ve completed the online form, please send your payment into the school office. (See the complete directions by clicking on the link.) Hard copies will be available in the school office.  Please return forms to the school office by Wednesday, December 4 at noon.
