School BusDear Parents:

We are pleased to announce that you can now make your child’s transportation changes online, rather than sending in a note or phoning in a change! Once you submit the request, your child’s homeroom teacher and the office staff will receive an e-mail notification of the change. You will receive that same e-mail. AFTER the office staff accepts the change, you will receive an additional e-mail stating “transportation change confirmed.” We do ask that you please try to make all transportation changes before 1:00 p.m. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS LINK AFTER 1:00pm.

Click here to access the transportation change form.

Note: You will need your child’s lunch number to complete an online transportation request.

Georgia Milestones

 The Milestones assessments replace the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), the high school End of Course Tests (EOCT), and the third, fifth, and eighth grade writing assessments that have been administered in Georgia schools for many years. Like their predecessors, the Milestones assessments are designed to measure student progress toward attainment of Georgia state standards and will be utilized as an indicator of teacher and leader effectiveness within the teacher and leader evaluation systems. These assessments will be administered to the same target populations as the previous assessments. Students in grades 3-8 will take Milestones End of Grade (EOG) assessments, and students enrolled in any of eight select high school credit courses will take Milestones End of Course (EOC) assessments. To continue reading this article, click here. To view the Milestones calendar, click here.

The media center is collecting paperback chapter books for our Book Swap scheduled to begin on May 11th. For every 2 gently used paperback chapter book donated, a student will receive 1 book credit to shop at the Swap. So....teachers, students and parents, check your bookshelves, closets, basements and attics for children's chapter books and bring them to the media center. At the Book Swap, students will be able to get books for summer reading! We would like every student to come away from the Swap with at least one book so please support this event by bringing in your books. See you there!


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.
