ASB Mascot Vote

A group of students are starting the OCEAN Associated Student Body. The below message is from the ASB:


Dear OCEAN Families,


Now through next Tuesday morning (May 3rd), students are voting on an OCEAN School mascot! Will we be the OCEAN Osprey, Otters, or Octopodes? They will decide! Paper ballots are available in each each classroom, and if your student will not be on campus, they can vote using this link.


Thank you,

Emilia Ramsey, OCEAN ASB
