We are so excited to announce that Christy Morrell is the OCES Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Morrell is our PE teacher. Congratulations Mrs. Morrell!
On Sept 19, the Mobile Dental Bus from Help A Child Smile will at OCES. This program has been around since 1993 and they serve over 100 school systems in Georgia. They provide comprehensive dental services to those children who do not normally receive routine and ongoing dental care. Included in the services are the exam, x-rays, sealants, and any cavity treatment if needed. Participation is optional. There is no cost if your child has PeachCare or Medicaid. If your child is covered under insurance, the Mobile Dental will file the insurance. If your child has no coverage, the cost is $100.00. Registration forms will go home in this week's Friday folder. If you are interested, please complete the form and return it to your child's homeroom teacher. The registration form will then be sent to Help A Child Smile, and they will contact you, the parent, regarding insurance, PeachCare and/or no insurance. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Miller, the school nurse.
It's tme to send in all those Box Tops you've been collecting. Box Tops for Education is an easy and fun way for us to raise funds for our school. You are encouraged to visit www.boxtops4education.com where you can sign up to be a supporter of our school and learn all about the hundreds of products from which you can clip Box Tops. This is a great place to find recipes, coupons, and fun ideas for your family. The success of our program depends on getting the whole family involved. This is a great way for grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbors, and friends to lend their support to OCES. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents and they really add up! Just send in your Box Tops in a sealed envelope or Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s first and last name as well as his or her homeroom teacher's name. All Box Tops are due on Friday, October 24th. The class at each grade that sends in the most Box Tops will win a pizza party.

We welcome you to our school! OCES is an exciting place to be! This website will provide you with information about our school, students, instructional program and community. We are pleased with the continual success of our students and their teacher's instructional commitment. We are fortunate to have a strong foundation of support from our parents, the community and the Board of Education. Without their support, the degree of success we have achieved would not be possible.
