I love this time of year! The cooler weather, the warmer foods, fires in the fireplace and the beautiful sites and sounds all around us.
At OCS we have so much to be thankful for:
[if !supportLists]1. [endif]Incredible teachers who give their all on a weekly basis to instruct and love on our students.
[if !supportLists]2. [endif]A terrific support staff that serves faithfully day in and day out many times doing the less favorable jobs like yard-duty, correcting papers, taking attendance and more.
[if !supportLists]3. [endif]Parents, who trust us to instruct their children not just in reading,writing and arithmetic, but in the spiritual formation of their children.
[if !supportLists]4. [endif]Students who come, on the most part ready and eager to learn.
[if !supportLists]5. [endif]An incredible facility with loving and supportive church trustees and elders.
[if !supportLists]6. [endif]A dedicated school board that puts in countless hours ensuring the proper functioning of the school.
