Students serve others

Thanks for being involved in God’s work in Okinawa

Through daily devotions, we’ve been encouraging our students to focus on others first. To put this into action, our students were involved in service projects:

  • Ministering to homeless people by providing food and fellowship.
  • Using the arts (drama, music, art, and dance) to present the Gospel at 5 different locations.
  • Cleaning up local beaches and a local zoo.
  • Supporting the outreach of a church in Saipan.
  • Visiting several nursing homes, where they met the residents and played games with them.
  • Doing odd jobs for 2 churches.

Please continue to pray for God’s work in Okinawa, Japan:

  • Praise God for providing opportunities for students to use their learning to serve others.
  • Praise God for providing an elementary teacher for next year.
  • Ask God to provide 3 bus drivers and 5 bus monitors.
  • Ask God for the health, energy, and wisdom staff need as they serve at OCSI.

Thanks for being involved in God’s work in Okinawa, Japan!

Sincerely,

Join in!

PTF Connections: 
Week of ReadingJoin the fun!
  • OCSI has received new indoor and outdoor recess supplies purchased by PTF for the elementary students. We hope that these supplies will make students’ recess time even more fun!
  • We appreciate applications from parents for the Mother Read class!  This fun class by Mrs. Woolery will be filled with laughter and help you enjoy reading with your child(ren) in English.
  • PTF will host a cooking class of Korean cuisine from 11:30 to 13:30 on Saturday, February 24.  Please email us at ptf@ocsi.org for application or inquiry.  We will accept 12 participants on a first come, first served basis. The application acceptance will start on February 10 at 9 a.m. We look forward to receiving your application!
  • Family Reading Night is scheduled to be held from 17:00 to 18:00 on March 1st, and PTF will also support this event.  Please join us in having a fun time with your child(ren)!
Would you like to share your opinion with our school? PTF will prepare questionnaires so you can share your thoughts about school events and other topics of the past 6 months of the school year.  Let’s share as many opinions as possible with the school to help OCSI continue growing!  The questionnaires will be sent in your elementary child’s Friday folder this week and available via Jupiter mail for secondary parents. Your cooperation will be appreciated!
March 21st is conference day, and PTF is planning to host a flea market that day. Last year, OCSI decided not to host Bazaar anymore. If you have any un-used items at home, why don’t you sell them at this event?  You can sell handmade products with your family, or hosting a game corner would be interesting, too. The details are to be announced later, so please stay tuned.
Please also check out PTF Facebook page for updated event information.

Middle school students are off to a great start

Middle School Happenings:

Middle school students are off to a great start!

  • Students were able to participate in some fun last month, as they took part in Spirit Week.
  • Each month, we are focusing on a particular character trait that we hope tosee reflected in our students’ actions. This month, we have been looking for examples of encouragement/positivity. This is a trait that we all need to have!
  • We are preparing to participate in Service Week from February 12 to 16. This is a great opportunity not only to experience serving others, but also to learn outside of the classroom. The teachers, the students, and those that are served are always blessed by this week!

As we continue into the 3rd quarter, students will need to remain focused. We are now halfway through the year!

Spirit Week goes well

High School Happenings:

Spirit Week 2018 was a fun celebration of OCSI spirit! The dress up days were a wonderful way to show class unity. At the pep rally, the seniors showed their spirit by cheering the loudest for the Spirit Stick. The class cheer performances were well done, exhibiting how well the classes worked together. Later that night at the Homecoming game, we saw the crowning of the homecoming king and queen, Samuel Calvin and Kaila McGinty.The week was topped off by the exciting boys’ basketball game where the Crusaders beat the Zion Lions 41-33.
