OCS VERSES-FOR-THE-YEAR…What the Lord wants us to Tweet, Post, and Share! Social media enable us to put all our thoughts, news, and emotions out there for all to see and comment on. We often think our tweets and posts are temporary, but that is not true. What is true and steadfast are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ! I have chosen these two verses to remind us of what we should be thinking about, what should direct our actions and words…toward one another and our Lord. Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
iPads for grades 6th – 8th Grades! Yes, we will be rolling out our iPad lending program for our middle school. These will be loaded with eTextbooks and educational apps to enhance our middle school curriculum. A technology fee of $50 will be required to cover the program which will include a repair/replace insurance policy, IT support, and durable case.
We are excited to have a guidance counselor, Jessica Reger, on staff to serve staff, students, and families! Mrs. Reger has served in a local elementary school and brings with her wonderful ideas and opportunities for our campus. She will be helping to plan and execute themed activities, providing individual, small group and grade level guidance sessions, and leading test prep for all grades!
