Christmas Cookies and Happy Hearts, This is How the Holidays Start!

Let's kick off the Christmas season right by blessing our OCS teachers and staff!!

On Monday December 9th, the SPO will host a Christmas Cookie Exchange. We will turn the conference room into a fun and cheerful Cookie Shop! The teachers and staff will come and choose two dozen cookies to take home. And to make that happen, we need YOUR HELP!! We need approximately 112 dozen HOMEMADE or BAKERY cookies! (That's A LOT of sweets!) Be on the lookout for a sign up sent to your email this week.
