A Message from Coach Roberts
Dear Parent Volunteers,
I want to thank each one of you for helping out with this year's Field Day activities. Without your efforts, fun events like this wouldn't be possible. Despite the weather challenges we experienced, everything proceeded as planned with a few minor delays.
Thank you for hanging in there with me! Most importantly, I think the students had a blast!
From the OCE Wellness Committee: Smoothies = Healthy Kids,
Researched and Written by Wellness Committee Student Representatives Madison Washam and Nick Kraus.
Smoothies are very healthy for you and make you strong. You get lots of vitamins and minerals which are what help kids grow and give them energy. Here are two healthy kid-friendly smoothies
You can find on the Food Network website:
½ cup milk
½ cup plain yogurt
1 cup frozen blueberries (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon honey
This is a family recipe.
1 ½ cups water
5 cups orange juice
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen sweet cherries
2 cups spinach
½ cup avocado
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. You can alter it by adding plain lowfat greek yogurt for added protein or any flavor of yogurt you like. If using a sweetened yogurt omit the honey. You can substitute the blueberries for any berry you desire!
Out of 5 stars, we would give these smoothies 5 star reviews. They have the perfect balance of sweetness. Adults, this is great for a quick breakfast before school. You may even enjoy it, too!

Clipper families, please continue to clip those Box Tops and send them in to your teacher or drop them in the Box Top mail boxes located by the front office.
Each Box Top is cash for our school!
We will continue to count Box Tops through the end of the school year.
Remember to write the name of your student's teacher on the sheet or bag containing your Box Tops so the class can earn a prize. A winner for the class that collects the most in each grade will be announced June 14. The wining classes will receive popsicles to celebrate summer!
Thank you for continuing to support the OCE Box Tops program.
Food 4 Kids
Here is an ongoing way for OCE Families and the community to support Food 4 Kids. We have set up a CheddarUp account so monetary donations can be made throughout the year. Click here to donate.
If you would still like to send in items, the Food 4 Kids collection bin is right outside the front office and is in constant need of Publix Gift Cards, Canned Meats (Tuna, Chicken), Beans (canned or dried), Rice (small bags), Soup or Ramen Noodles, Mac & Cheese, and individually bagged snacks (Goldfish, Pretzels, Raisins).
Again, the Food 4 Kids program provides back packs of food each Friday for OCE students in need to help them through the weekend.
Thank you for continuing to support our OCE community.
