Middle School Community Service Event | Saturday, September 29
This semester we will be offering two dates for OCS families, faculty, and staff to serve together at Second Harvest Food Bank.  We love that the OCS Middle School is able to assist such a great organization, and we also love what an awesome community building experience it is between Middle School faculty and families.  Ultimately, giving the gift of our time and energy is for and through Jesus alone!

First Service Date: Saturday, September 29, 2018
Time: 8:15 am- 11:30 am
Location: Second Harvest Food Bank of Orlando; 411 Mercy Dr, Orlando, FL 32805

After-School Tutoring for Middle School students!
We are excited to partner again this year with our High School National Honor Society students to offer an after-school tutoring center open to ALL Middle School students!  The tutoring center is available every Thursday afternoon (when school is in session) in Mrs. Rushing's classroom (MS 213) from 3:00pm until 4:00pm.  There is no charge for this service.  Students may receive help in ANY subject!  We hope our families will encourage their students to take advantage of this opportunity for extra academic help.
