Grandparents' Day

We eagerly look forward to Wednesday, October 16th, our annual Grandparents' Day Celebration!


  • Students should wear formal dress.
  • Students should report to class as usual, and need to be here before 8:00 a.m.
  • Grandparents will enjoy a reception from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. in the OCS Student Center.
  • The program is from 9:00 a.m. - 10 a.m. in the OCS Middle School Gym.
  • Following the program, grandparents and grandchildren will be united to enjoy a time of classroom visits, the book fair, and a photo opportunity in the Music room.
  • ALL students will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m.
  • Students who are not leaving with their grandparents will follow their usual pick-up procedure at 11:30 a.m. - we will have inside pick up that day.
  • As you prepare for Grandparents' Day, we want to make you aware that the UE building does not have an elevator or ramp for those needing special assistance to visit the second floor. We hope this won't deter grandparents from coming, but we did want you to be aware of these logistics. Please make your teacher aware if you have grandparents unable to go up the stairs, they will gladly make accommodations for your projects to be available to your grandparents.
  • NO LUNCH will be provided on Grandparents' Day.

After School Care

There will be NO After School Care on Grandparents' Day, Wednesday, October 16th. All elementary students will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m.

Picture Retakes

Picture retake day is Wednesday, October 23. If you were were unhappy with the pictures you purchased and would like a retake, please return the original pictures with your child. Those will be given to the photographer who will then retake your child's picture.

Saints 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run

Is it a struggle to get your kids all dressed up for chapel every week?? Well, today is your lucky day! What if we told you, your child could earn NO CHAPEL DRESS for the ENTIRE month of October?!?! Well, THEY CAN!!! All they need to do is register to run/walk in the Inaugural Saints 5K or 1 mile Fun Run before 10/2 to earn NO CHAPEL DRESS for ALL of October!


All rewards and incentives for registering will be given out during the month of October. Plus, there are some super fun rewards for fundraising. Just think, if every kid simply raised $100 what an impact that would be. $100,400 to be exact! All fundraising rewards will be given out in November. Make sure to check out the Saints 5K packet that went home last week for more information or visit our website.

Bedlam Box Tops Challenge

OU is currently in the lead, but it's still anyone's game! Please send all Box Tops in a baggie or envelope marked with your favorite Oklahoma team by November 15th. Box Tops can be turned in to your child's teacher or to Mrs. Hamlin.


Want to go further??? Box Tops has a new system that includes downloading the Box Tops app and scanning your grocery receipt! This is a great way to earn even MORE money for our school. For more information, go to: https://www.boxtops4education.com
