It’s that time for our children to load up their backpacks, don their brand new outfits, and head back to school! It can be a hard transition from the freedom of summer to the structure of being a full time student. But you know that it is all worth it! There is nothing like getting a good education, it gives our children a strong foundation for the rest of their lives.
The 2016-17 school bell rings in an exciting new school year but one constant remains at OLCS. We have high expectations for our student’s academics and social learning. Our mission statement which we take very seriously is to learn, make friends and have fun! We continue to work together with the outstanding support of our parents and community to “Build Character Today for Communities of Tomorrow!” As the civil rights leader Martin Luther King so accurately stated:” Intelligence plus character that is the goal of true education”.
The following enthusiastic staff looking forward to warmly greeting students on September 8th, as we embark on the 2016-17 school year at OLCS:
