Events and Activities

The OCS PTO sponsors many events and activities throughout the year. Please consider volunteering, and becoming a part of one of the many events planned. This is a great way to meet and know other parents. All OCS families are encouraged to join.

The AHEPA Annual Olympic 5K Run/Walk
AHEPA, the founding organization of OCS is the main organizer of this special anniversary event with support and volunteers from AHEPA; OCS Admin, Faculty and Staff; OCS families and students and the OCS PTO. PTO volunteers help with event set up, race registration, clean up and more.

School Store / Used Uniform Sales
Ongoing throughout the year
The PTO sells used school uniforms for $5.00 and OCS School Store items such as t-shirts, hoodies, magnets, etc. These items are sold throughout the year upon request OR 30 minutes before each PTO meeting throughout the year. Volunteers will work with committee chair to sell items at the PTO Meetings.

Scholastic Book Fair Fall/Spring
Twice a year the PTO organizes and runs a book fair (currently using Scholastic Books). Volunteers are needed to work the book fair during the school day and one evening as cashiers and children helpers.

Teacher/ Staff Appreciation Week
This is a weeklong event held during the day at both the Upper and Lower Schools. It is our way to show the Teachers & administration of OCS how much they are appreciated by the students, parents and PTO. We arrange special events for them such as breakfast, lunch, gifts etc. Volunteers would be asked to help plan the events for the week as well as help execute the plans during the week of Teacher/Staff Appreciation.

Paving the Way to Our Future
The Paving the Way campaign does not sell anything and does not ask for any time from volunteers. It is a fundraiser in which we ask our parents to donate what you can to invest into classroom tools and technology (e.g. smartboards, laptops, etc.) to enrich the education of our children. Read More
