Become an OCE First Mate
The OCE First Mate program is an opportunity for dads, father figures, uncles, grandfathers, etc... to spend significant amounts of time in our school doing everything from reading in classrooms, to assisting at lunch, to interacting with students during recess. This program specifically targets a group that is statistically less likely to volunteer in schools. We have full-day and half-day slots available. Interested? Register here!
Rent the Rock
It's official! OCE now has a Spirit Rock, thanks to the 5th grade class of 2022! Want to paint the rock for your childs birthday or another special occasion? It's easy! Sign up for the date you want, and use the cheddar up link below to pay for your rental. $20 per rental. Paint days are Sundays and Wednesdays, giving each rental period two full days to be on display. You can find the signup form here!
Walk to School
The Walk to School program is in its 16th year at OCE! As part of our commitment to healthy choices, families walk or bike to school on the first Wednesday of the month from October through June. Click here for details.
We're excited to welcome families back into the cafeteria as lunch volunteers! Whether you have 30 minutes or two hours, the OCE staff appreciates your support! In order to volunteer, you must be on the WCPSS approved volunteers list. If you have not yet registered to be a WCPSS volunteer, you can do so in the OCE front office from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can find the signup form here!
FAMILY, FITNESS, & FUN! Please join us this year for a longtime favorite tradition, the Family Marathon! This is an annual event that encourages children to run/walk the distance of a full marathon, 26.2 miles, at a pace at home that is both fun and safe for their growing bodies. Sign up here!
Stock the Staff Lounge
The PTA Staff Appreciation Committee would like to shower our staff with snacks and goodies in the staff lounge weekly. They work hard, and having a little surprise can bring a lot of happiness to their day! Sign up here!
IDEAS: Please stick to individually wrapped items. Feel free to be creative!
small packs of crackers, cookies, chips, popcorn, etc.
Please help spoil them by signing up for one (or more) weeks!
Please drop off items to the front office by Tuesday morning of each week. The fabulous ladies in the front office will get it to it's final destination!

We’re a Box Tops school and every Box Top you submit earns OCE 10 cents for our school. There is a NEW and improved Box Tops mobile app, which allows families to scan their store receipts and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online. Please download the new app today to start digital clipping! We are still able to accept physical box tops so please send them with your child to school! There is also a box outside of the school to drop off bags of box tops with your teacher's name.
Want to be on our Volunteer list? Send us an email and we'll let you know when we need help!
