Celebrate Diversity Day + Multicultural Night on March 28

Celebrate Diversity Day (CDD) is Thursday, 3/28!  As part of our annual OSS tradition, CDD is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate diversity in all its forms, including racial/ethnic, gender, economic, and family diversity. Our students across all grade levels will be engaged in curriculum-related activities that explore and celebrate our similarities and differences. The goal of CDD is to promote a culture of inclusivity, acceptance, and respect within our school community. 

Then, we invite you to join us on Thursday evening (3/28) from 6pm-8pm for Multicultural Night, a chance for our school community to come together and celebrate the diversity that makes us unique. This exciting event will feature performances, potluck (bring a cultural dish to share), and displays from a range of cultures and backgrounds. It’s a night not to be missed, and we hope to see you there!  Sign up HERE to share a dish, dance or activity.

Tentative: After School Enrichment Program Schedule – Fall 2023

Save the “time slot” for After School Enrichment Programs! After School Enrichment Programs (ASEP) folks wanted to get word out ASEP (pun intended) about the after school classes that will likely be available in the fall. The exact date of the sign ups, the length of the sessions and the costs are not solidified but there’s many exciting classes so please keep this in mind as you think about child care and other activities.  

These are usually 1 hour classes  (3-4p, except on Wed where it is 1-2p) onsite and they usually run from mid-Sept to early Dec.  All these details will be obvious once the sign up preview is ready. Registration opens on August 21, 2023.

Tentative ASEP Class Schedule for Fall 2023 (subject to change)
