We’re getting ready for next school year

OCSI Connections:

We are celebrating all the good things that happened last school year, and we are already preparing for next school year:
  • New textbooks are being processed.
  • Student schedules are being developed.
  • The summer packet is being prepared and will be sent out in late July. (Please return your forms by Friday, August 11.)
2017-06 Gym

Did you know that…?
  • Work being done on the gym (see above photo) so that our students can enjoy more years of play? We are sealing the roof and painting part of the exterior.
  • You can contact principals with your questions about policy and curriculum?
  • OCSI’s mission is to equip students to walk with God and impact the world for Him?
  • OCSI is moving to MAP testing for grades 3-8 next school year? MAP testing fits more with what we teach, is less disruptive to the teaching schedule, and provides more useful data reports for parents/guardians and teachers. For additional information, please see the parent guide.
  • All students entering grade 5 and grade 9 must submit a satisfactory tuberculosis screening (skin test or x-ray), unless they submitted a satisfactory tuberculosis screening when entering grade 4 or grade 8?
  • Parent/guardian survey results have been reviewed by the Leadership Team and Steering Committee and that they are already being used to help OCSI get ready for its spring 2018 accreditation visit? (In response to survey feedback, this “Did you know that…?” section is being added to OCSI Connections. This section is designed to provide parents/guardians with helpful information.)
Please keep the following dates in mind:
  • 7/4: Independence Day observed – no school, office closed
  • 7/13: Summer School ends
  • 7/14-21: Office closed

Thank you for being part of our school community and for the privilege of assisting you with the education of your child(ren). 

Sincerely,
Michael B. Essenburg, superintendent

New textbooks have arrived

We’re excited that new textbooks have arrived for Bible, English, health, and social studies! Textbooks are a valuable resource to help our students…

  • Understand God, His world, and their place in it.
  • Think critically and Biblically.
  • Collaborate with others, respecting them as God’s image bearers.
  • Communicate truthfully and effectively.
  • Create ideas, products, and solutions.

  • Ask that God will use our summer school program to help our students deepen their understanding of God, His world, and their place in it.
  • Pray that the entire OCSI family will do all in God’s strength, learning to wait and listen to the wise counsel He provides.
  • Praise God for OCSI’s Board of Directors. Ask God to encourage board members and to provide His guidance.

Thanks for being involved in God’s work in Japan.

Celebrate our 8th graders’ completion of middle school!

On evening of Friday, June 9, the OCSI community celebrated the 8th graders’ completion of middle school.
