OCS Summer Conference "Achieving Our Personal Best" is coming up soon! Amazing booths, incredible sessions, round table discussions, captivating keynote, oh and did we mention raffles?!? Tons of gift cards, prizes, chances to win innovative classroom furniture...and even a $2,000 classroom makeover! Nope, that is not a typo...$2,000 classroom makeover with innovative flexible learning furniture!
In a great show of support for our teachers, the Board of Education proposed and approved a one-time allocation of funds from our reserves to offer each participant a $50 stipend for each day of attendance. Also, in partnership with Sportsplex FREE childcare for children of attendees in grades K-5 will be provided. Sportsplex is building an awesome schedule just for the children of OCS teachers on June 14-15 and lunch is included!
This form will help us prepare for your attendance and to make it the best conference ever. Please click INTENT FORM and tell us if you are planning to attend and if you'll need childcare. A formal registration form will be sent later in May.

Collaborative Tool Highlight!
Padlet is the easy way to create and collaborate with others.
Padlet is an Internet application that allows people to express their thoughts on a common topic easily. It works like an online sheet of paper where people can put any content (e.g. images, videos, documents, text) anywhere on the page, together with anyone, from any device.
Think of it like a multimedia friendly, free-form, real-time wiki.
