Employee Appreciation Week

Staff, parents, and students have been sharing the love as we celebrated all our employees this past week in conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation day on Tuesday. All were encouraged to use #thanksteamOCS when sending out messages via social media to teachers and staff where over 250 messages flooded across Twitter and Facebook. Click the link below to view some of the messages captured on Onslow County Schools Twitter page.
