Lights, Cameras, ACTION!

The OVCS Christmas Program is just over 2 weeks away!  Today’s drama class has been encouraging to watch — things are coming together.  However, there are still a few needs and important dates and times to make note of.

OVCS Christmas Program

Date:  Saturday, December 6, 2014

Time:  5:00PM performance time * Arrive IN COSTUME by 4:30

Location:  Limerick Free Baptist Church

Theme:  “Promised from the Beginning”

NEEDS leading up to the program:

Costumes!  In a letter sent at the end of October, Mrs. Blake requested help providing some costumes and volunteers to help hem some that we have.  Many of you have touched base with your teacher already about your child’s costume.  However, we have not heard from everyone.  Please contact your child’s teacher ASAP to confirm that your child has a costume or to ask for help meeting this need.  Thanks.

DRESS REHEARSAL – We are aiming to have a dress rehearsal AT the Limerick church on Thursday, December 4th.  Mrs. Blake and Mrs. Foss are prepared to run through the program two times.  This rehearsal will take place during the morning from approximately 8:30 to 10:30. We could use help from parents with transporting students and staying to monitor students who may not be involved at given moments of the practice.  Miss Souza will be organizing rides, so you can contact her if you are willing to help.

Thanks for all you do to make your child’s education the best it can be!

Thanksgiving at OVCS

There is much to give thanks about at OVCS.  Coming next week is our annual Thanksgiving meal.  This meal has truly become one of the highlights of the year — the food is always excellent and the fellowship is sweet.  Please remember to RSVP to Ms.Tillie in the office by November 17th to help in the planning of this special event.  Also, please note, Friday will be an early dismissal of 1:30 pm after the Thanksgiving Celebration.

A “Specials” Moment

Thought it would be nice to share about the wonderful way God is blessing the school through special classes this year.  Did you know that the entire school reached their goal of 100 books read (a challenge issued in library with Mrs. Minor)?  Tomorrow, each class is celebrating with a party during library time.  Did you know that Mrs. Blake is working hard to prepare the students for a Christmas program on Saturday, December 6th?  There will be singing, drama, and the message of redemption through Christ.  Did you know that the students have gym class every Tuesday?  Mr. Winters has been having a great time with the kiddos during the first quarter.  Mr. Fred Lettelier is stepping into the role of gym teacher for the second quarter.  Lastly, did you know that students are enjoying regular time in the computer lab with Mrs. Crystal Constant each week?  The older students will all be starting keyboarding classes and tracking their progress through an online program.

Praise God for the many ways he blesses us at OVCS!
