National School Choice Week!

Dear Osceola Science Charter School Parents and Supporters:

During the week of January 20-26, OSCS will join more than 20,000 schools across America in celebrating National School Choice Week (NSCW).

National School Choice Week provides all types of schools with an opportunity to celebrate the positive work that they do and to spotlight students, parents, teachers, and school staff. The celebration is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and it is not designed to advocate for or against any legislation or public policy. Here at Osceola Science Charter School, we are incredibly thankful to the parents who have chosen our school for their children. NSCW is a time to express this gratitude, and we have several fun, in-school activities planned to do just that.

We encourage all of our parents and supporters to join us in spreading the positive news about Osceola Science Charter School during NSCW. Many families use NSCW to look into their school options and we want them to know that Osceola Science Charter School may be a great fit for them.

If you use social media, consider sharing stories about why your family has chosen OSCS and use the hashtag #schoolchoice.

Thank you!

Cookies With A Cop!

The first grade had a wonderful time having Cookies With Cops. We read several stories and had a ask and answer session. The children were very excited to tell their stories and see the tools that the sheriff and deputies use. We sure hope we can spend time with our new friends again soon.

8 deputies (including our very own SRO Deputy Toomey) from the Osceola County Sheriff's Office came by and read stories to our 1st grade classes.
