Core Values: Collaboration
Our Synergy group evolved after our first school year and the needs identified from families within our community. Synergy is run similarly to a PTO, where they help support our teachers and students through a variety of fundraising opportunities. The members of Synergy help support new and returning Learning Coaches to become acclimated to the virtual school environment. They continuously collaborate to provide our Learning Coaches with a Coffee Bar, where parent donations keep the coffee pot busy on any given Learning Center Day.
Collaboration is one of the KEYS to our success at OVS! What does collaboration look like to your student? What does it mean for the learning coach? How will you collaborate with our school to enrich your student's learning experience? Discuss what collaboration means to your family and how you will collaborate with OVS this school year.
Upcoming Orientation Schedule
K-10th GradeA PARENT ONLY orientation will be held August 1-7th for NEW and RETURNING families of kindergarten-10th grade students. During the parent orientation session, staff will review updated policies and procedures in our student hand book. We have enhanced our procedures for the upcoming school year, so it is important that all families attend. Please sign up HERE for the session you are planning to attend.
