We are looking for our attendance superheroes to come and join us at the Annual Super Hero Attendance party. If students have 5 or less absences/tardies from now until the end of the year, they will be able to join OCES staff at a dance party during school while enjoying great snacks and lots of fun. Make sure and help your child secure a spot by being at school every day and on time.
