The OCE Family Marathon is Back!
Please join us this year for a longtime favorite tradition, the Family Marathon! This is an annual event that encourages children to run/walk the distance of a full marathon, 26.2 miles, at a pace at home that is both fun and safe for their growing bodies.

Be an OCE Lunch Volunteer!
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!
If your student loves crafting, let them know about the Clipper Crafters! The craft club will be open to 4th and 5th graders (lower grades will have an opportunity later this year) and meet weekly.
If your student is interested in crafting, click here for more information!
New Family Social
Welcome to OCE, new families!
We'd love to invite all of our new families for an informal morning/evening chat! We will have a few seasoned families around, and then all our wonderful new ones. It's going to be a time to ask whatever you'd like, all the nitty-gritty you can't ask a teacher or the front office.
New families can learn about track out camps we've heard of/tried; what clipper cash is; what is the fun run; what's clopening; where to park when all-school wide events...whatever you'd like!
To sign up for either our morning (Sept. 21) OR evening (Sept. 29) event, click here!
Link your Shopper Rewards to OCE
Did you know that you can raise money for our school when you select OCE as your shopper rewards beneficiary at a variety of area stores?
Lowes Foods, Harris Teeter, Publix, Office Depot/Office Max, and Amazon Smile all offer rewards for Olive Chapel.
Visit the link here on the OCE PTA website to learn how to connect your accounts for each store. It takes a few seconds, is no cost to you, and is easy money for our school throughout the year. Encourage your family members to link their accounts, too, if they shop at any of these retailers.
If you've signed up in the past, please take the time to re-link your rewards cards.
This must be done each August for the new school year to ensure that you continue supporting our school with your purchases!
It's Time to Go, Play and SAVE!
It's time for our first fundraiser of the year! As in years past, we will be selling GoPlaySave books!
What's in it for you? Hundreds (and we mean HUNDREDS) of valuable coupons from places you visit regularly. Don't believe us? Click here to get a sneak peek of this year's book!
What's in it for us? A 50% profit from every single book we sell!
