We hope everyone has had a great start to the school year! October is starting off on a rainy foot but we look forward to a few more warm fall days with lots of pretty colours outside.
Christmas is coming!! We are already planning the Christmas celebration for Friday, December 14th but we need a leader (or co-leaders) to help execute. Without this help the event may not happen so please step forward if you are interested in leading this fun event that is loved by all our students. The next planning meeting is Thursday, October 18th from 9-10am in the school atrium. We would love to see you there!
Coming in October we have the Grandparents Celebration on Wednesday, October 31st hosted by the children in Grades PK through Grade 4. This is always a fun event and the children love performing for their grandparents. We will need volunteers so please check the OCS Newsletter to be advised when SignUp will have this celebration posted.
We are still in need of Pizza Monday helpers! There have been some changes this year with pizza that are good to note:

The PTA would like to ask you for your support with the fundraising that is needed in order to host these events. The PTA Donation Form allows you to donate to the PTA at the beginning of the year. Many families have preferred this option of giving a monetary lump sum to the PTA rather than frequent fundraising activities throughout the year. Please note that you will receive a donation receipt for your contribution. We would like to thank you for your anticipated support again this year.
