Celebrate OCSI’s sports program

OCSI wins dragon boat race!

On May 5, OCSI participated for the first time in the 43rd Naha dragon boat race. Pioneered by Elementary Principal, Brad Jernberg, OCSI’s team brought home their first trophy!

It was an amazing team-building effort that gathered parents, students, and teachers together. In addition, many had the opportunity to share OCSI’s mission and purpose with others in the community.  This event was created to continue on our theme of building unity and share the great things that are happening at OCSI:

Romans 15:5-6 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We used the rally term of 団結 – danketsu, which means UNITED. Teachers, students, family members and school board members made up our team.
