Did you realize that this Friday marks the end of the 2nd quarter? Wow! Report cards go home next week.
As we start the 3rd quarter, we are also adding a new “special” to our schedule — ART class! Mrs. Garnier will be teaching an art class with each group of students on Fridays. Our other specials are slotted to continue for the remainder of the year, which is good news since the students LOVE the special classes (and the special’s teachers). Specials Include:
Tuesday — Gym with Mr. Lettelier
Wednesday — Chapel with various speakers
Wednesday — Computer Class with Mrs. Constant
Friday — Library with Mrs. Minor
Friday — Art with Mrs. Garnier
Thanks to everyone for the work you have done to make the first half of the school year wonderful!
We have a number of wonderful speakers scheduled over the coming weeks. Please consider this an open invitation to come and join us! Chapel is from 9:20-10:00 am on Wednesdays each week.

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!
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.
