Oconee County Primary School
Home of the Little Chiefs
Message from the Principal
As we quickly approach the upcoming holiday season, I would like to share with you a few of the many reasons I am thankful to call OCPS home.
- Teachers and staff that are not only capable and confident but truly care about their students and families.
- Students who strive to do their best each day and are eager to learn.
- Families who value education and all of the extras our school offers their children.
- A highly active and involved PTO and countless parent volunteers.
- The Board of Education and Superintendent that support our school so we can remain focused on providing students with an excellent education.
- Local businesses that always look for ways to get involved and give back to our school.
We are continuing to seek parent feedback on a state survey that will be used to calculate our school climate score. The Georgia Parent Survey will only be administered electronically. It has 24 questions and it should take no more than a few minutes to complete. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Please access the survey using the following link: http://gshs.gadoe.org/Lists/Parents/NewForm.aspx
Thank you for ALL that you do to support our school. I wish each of you a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

It's never too early to start planning for field day!! This year field day is May 10, and if you plan to volunteer you will need to complete the OCS volunteer training. Training can be done in person at OCPS on January 11 at 8 am or through the online course located on our school website. Thanks for all you do for our Little Chiefs!
At OCPS, we understand that teaching students about behavior is just as important as what we do to support their academic growth. At our school, we use Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to identify student needs, to develop instructional strategies for supporting positive behavior, and to evaluate our practice in building a positive school culture.
We would love your input to help us determine how effectively we are implementing the PBIS framework at OCPS. Please take a few moments to answer our survey questions so we can include your feedback in our conversations about how to improve the work that we do every day to teach positive behaviors to our Little Chiefs.
Reminders from the Office
Please remember that all transportation changes should be made before 2:00 each day so we can ensure all students get home safely.
