OCSI Connections:

Thank you for giving us the privilege in 2019 of assisting you with the education of your child(ren). At OCSI, we want to help your child(ren) learn, reach their potential, and live for Jesus. We are excited to see

  • Pre-K students blossoming in their creative expression.
  • Kindergarten mathematician learning addition using objects and counters.
  • Second grade actors using their speaking skills as they performed a nativity play for their parents.
  • Third graders looking at maps and documents to figure out mysteries in social studies.
  • Fourth and fifth grade linguists learning stroke, stroke order, and number of strokes for writing in Japanese.
  • Elementary musicians learning that there is no H in the musical alphabet and that A comes after G.
  • Sixth grade Bible scholars studying the price Jesus paid in the crucifixion.
  • Seventh grade scientists making their own ecospheres and 7th grade artists using 1-point perspective to draw their dream rooms.
  • Tenth grade English students understanding the importance of listening to understand, instead of listening to critique.
  • High school scientists asking questions and seeking evidence.
  • High school computer scientists learning JavaScript functions.
During the January teaching staff meeting, teachers celebrated what students have learned so far this year.
