O.C. Taylor Tigers salute our Veterans!

In honor of Veterans Day, we will collect Wal-Mart gift cards to donate to the Ft. Worth Veterans Hospital. Local veterans can use these gift cards to buy groceries, medications, household needs and even gas. Please turn in gift cards to your teacher or the OCT front office by Monday, Nov. 9.


Tip Your Hat to our Veterans day will be Friday, Oct. 16 and Friday, Nov. 6. If you make a $1 donation to help our local veterans you can wear a hat to school! Please turn your dollar in to your teacher the morning of the event. We will add this money to our Ft. Worth Veterans Hospital. Thank you for your generosity Tigers!


If you have a picture of a veteran you wish to hang on the Wall of Honor, please label your picture with your name, the veteran’s name and the branch of the military they served in. Turn in your pictures to your teacher or Mrs. Vencill by Wed., Nov. 4. Your pictures will be returned to you after Our 3rd and 4th grade students are preparing music to perform at our annual Veterans Day program Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 8:30 a.m. in the OCT cafeteria. 3rd and 4th grade students should wear red, white and blue for our performance. There is a reception in the library immediately following the program for Veterans, honored guests and their families.


If you know a veteran who would like to speak during our Veterans Day program, please contact Mrs. Vencill.
