1 John 4:8
“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
Have your kids been telling you all about Jump2Math that happened at the school last week? To honour our founders, the PTA arranged for this wonderful experience for our children. Jump2Math is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math that incorporates physical exercise with games. It was held in the large gym and the students really enjoyed the experience.
Coming up this month is the Pastor’s Luncheon on Feb 21st. This year the children from grades 1 thru 8 are encouraged to ask their pastor or any spiritual leader in their church to attend as their guest. Guests have until Feb 16th to reply. We also need volunteers to help on the day of the event so please check SignUp for available positions.
Despite its status as the shortest month, February is packed with many events, including Valentine’s Day and Groundhog’s Day. February is also a time for families. This year Family Day is on February 19th so we hope you are able to spend some special time with your family.
Please be advised PTA General Meetings will be held on an “as needed” basis this year. For all information regarding the OCS PTA, please continue to check our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. All up-coming volunteer opportunities will be posted in the OCS Newsletter with a link to SignUp.
