 Just a reminder...OCRS students play in the snow during recess as long as they have boots and snowpants!  We go out as long as the windchill is 20 or above!

4-23-2012 Report cards sent home today...

I reviewed report cards today before sending them home.  I was quite pleased with the academic growth since last quarter!  Kudos to OCRS students who are "open to learning"!

1-4-2012 Happy New Year!

I could tell by the smiles that the students had a wonderful week off.  Many stories have been shared about their holiday and/or family time!   The students (and faculty,staff and principal) have returned ready to learn!!  Students will be screened over the next month in the areas of reading and math to help us individualize their instruction!  Teachers will be busy with the Educator's Evaluation and learning the Common Core. 


 Reporting Student Progress...Report cards will be sent home tomorrow 11-16-2011 and Parent Teacher Conferences will be Thursday 11-17-2011.  I have reviewed each student's report card and I am quite pleased with what I read!  Kudos to OCRS students!!

10-18-2011 NECAP

 Tomorrow is the last day for NECAP!  Thank you to the parents for making certain to avoid appointments so that your children were in school for testing.  I also wanted to share that I have been very proud of the students during the testing sessions.  During proctoring of the exams, I noticed that students took this very serious and recognized that this is important work.  Now, we need to wait for the Spring to get our results!

10-3-2011 Common Core

 Today the OCRS Faculty learned more about the Common Core!  We are excited with the future changes and are "Open to Learning"!
