Donation Request: Clothes
Spring showers bring a lot of mud, and our students have found plenty of it!
If you have any soft clothing - think sweatpants, leggings, athletic pants - that your students have outgrown, we would love to have it in our front office! It will help us get students into warm, dry clothes should they land in a mud puddle! Play condition is fine.
Walk with Us on April 5!
Stock the Staff Lounge **Updated Signup**
The PTA Staff Appreciation Committee would like to shower our staff with snacks and goodies in the staff lounge weekly. They work hard, and having a little surprise can bring a lot of happiness to their day! Sign up here!
IDEAS: Please stick to individually wrapped items. Feel free to be creative!
small packs of crackers, cookies, chips, popcorn, etc.
Please help spoil them by signing up for one (or more) weeks!
Please drop off items to the front office by Tuesday morning of each week. The fabulous ladies in the front office will get it to it's final destination!

Do You Have Spirit?
We are looking for someone to head up our Spirit Nights! This person would be in charge of choosing the location and date for our monthly / bimonthly spirit nights! We have a list of locations that have been great to work with in the past but this person is also welcome to find new places that want to partner with our school if they choose!
If you are looking for a way to support our school PTA, this may be a great volunteer role for you! Please email email@example.com, our PTA President, if you are interested in learning more.
Rent the Rock
We still have a handful of dates left - including several around the holidays - so don't miss your chance to make your student feel really special while also making a donation to OCE! And don't forget to take a photo and tag us: #oceROCKstars
You can find the sign up form here.
We're excited to welcome families back into the cafeteria as lunch volunteers!
Whether you have 30 minutes or two hours, the OCE staff appreciates your support! In order to volunteer, you must be on the WCPSS approved volunteers list.
If you have not yet registered to be a WCPSS volunteer, you can do so in the OCE front office from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
You can find the signup form here!
