OCSI Elementary Connections: 

Our school year is off to a rapid start! I trust that your family has started this year smoothly.  It was nice to see so many people at our Open House!  

We are now halfway through our first quarter, and progress reports will be available on Friday, September 16, on your Jupiter account. If you are having trouble locating information, remember that you can locate all information in our student handbook, and it can be read in English or Japanese.  

Please check the upcoming events and activities below and review the school calendar on our website to keep current on all our school events.


  • 9/19 and 10/10: Teacher Professional Work Days

  • Kindergarten Sports Day: Families of kindergarten students will be having an exciting activity day on September 22 at the park below our school. There is no school for kindergarten on this day. Bring your picnic lunch and enjoy at time of meeting other families around games and a picnic!

We are also preparing to enhance the back entrance to school.

To raise funds for these important projects, we have launched our PlaySafely Campaign. We will send more information about our campaign soon.
