EOG Volunteers Needed
We need your help! The 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders at OCE are preparing to take their End of Grade Tests (EOG) for Reading, Math & 5th Grade Science. Our testing coordinator, Ms. Angela Johnson, could really use some extra volunteers to help with this process.
Please click here for a description of what she needs assistance with.
One of the things we need MOST this time of year is lunch volunteers! The amount of value provided by our lunch volunteers cannot be overstated!
