Dear OSCS Parents,


Thank you for all your support with the Smile Mile 2018 Registrations. We are currently in 1st place in Osceola County with 64 registered participants but there is still time to enter the race and the school in second place is very close. Please keep registering your children either online or in the OSCS Front Office. If you are sending the form with the money next week you have until Wednesday since I must collect the race packets by Thursday. Remember the Smile Mile fee is now $11.00.


Thank you again for supporting our school and the Physical Education Program.


Sincerely,
