Parent Directory
Parent Directories went home with students last week. If you did not receive one, please contact the office and we will make sure one goes home this week.

This year the parent directory can also be accessed online. You can find it under "Parents -> Directory" on our website. You can access this using your P/T conference signup information if you have kids in school. If you do not, you will need to enter the username/password below in order to access the information.

OCCS on Social Media
Would you like to hear more about what is happening at school? OCCS shares
information through a few different Social Media sites.

OCCS has a Facebook page, an Instagram page, and a YouTube
Channel. You can find information and pictures on events at school and
watch concerts, chapels, and other programs. We look forward to sharing what is happening in and out of the classroom through the perspectives of students, teachers, parents, and the school community. Check it out!
Phone Calls
If you notice a missed call from the school, please do not call the school. We
will leave a message if there is an emergency or try a different number you
have provided us. We have approximately 40 phones in the building and
the office often does not know who originated the call.

There are 2 phone numbers we will use to call you: 712-737-2274 and 712-737-8061. If you have OCCS as a contact in your phone, please make sure both numbers are listed.

On-Line Shopping through Amazon
OCCS is signed up for parents/constituents to do online Amazon shopping through AmazonSmile. The name is listed as: Orange City Society for Christian Instruction.

The funds earned from this foundation will be used by the Technology Department. The bottom link will take you right to the sign in page for OCCS. You can still use your TRIP certificates when shopping through AmazonSmile. If you have a current Amazon account, you can use that information to log in.

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/42-0776438
