​100th Day of School!



OACS celebrated the 100th day of school on January 30, 2017!  Many of our first and second grade students dressed up as 100 year olds to mark this momentous day!  

​Literacy Week 2017



Literacy Week took place January 23-27, 2017.  Students and staff participated in a number of literacy themed activities.  Everyone dressed up like a word for Vocabulary Day. Students tried to guess the Mystery Book each day based on clues from Mrs. Dwyer.  Grade levels paired up to do buddy reading in the courtyard.  All classes decorated their doors with a literacy themed poster.  The students then voted for their favorite doors.  Everyone had a blast with all of these activities!
