OCPS Happenings



 

Eight faculty and staff members of the Oglethorpe County Primary School were recently recognized by Dr. James-Robinson for having perfect attendance for the first semester of the 2016-2017 school year. For this achievement they were treated to a few small tokens of appreciation to include a restaurant gift card, a tumbler, a jeans pass, and an Early Release Incentive (ERI) which allows them to leave 30 minutes early one day of their choice. 



 



OCPS Second Grade donated items for victims of the tornado disasters in South Georgia.


 

 


To the delight of the those in attendance, a mild and fine night enabled the attendees to head out to the O.C.P.S. cafeteria for a live auction.  The auctioneer for the evening was Mr. Jake Willcox. Each classroom decorated a wreath as well as some of the other departments such as art, gifted, and the lunchroom staff.  The wreaths usually started out at $25.00 but went for more.  In the past it was nothing to have a $300.00 plus wreath leave the school grounds headed to someone’s front door or local business.  In addition to the wreath auction, this year Ms. Katie Towns recruited some faculty and staff members for a cute, O.C.P.S. rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas.



 

On October 31st, some of the Oglethorpe County Primary faculty and staff joined the national movement to battle breast cancer by participating in a “Pink Out. ” October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 


             O.C.P.S. Celebrates Its (50th, 60th,70th, 80th, and 90th) Days of Teaching and Learning 

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         


50th Day: Who says you can't learn about math and look cool while doing it? The faculty, staff, and students of Oglethorpe County Primary School celebrated

their 50th day of teaching and learning by participating in a lot of great 50’s related activities. The many activities included a sock-hop, hula-hooping, enjoying

Coke Floats, taking customized photos, and even drawing vehicles from the 50’s such as the Thunderbird.  Also, the attire for the day was a blast from the

past (poodle skirts, white t-shirts, jeans, bobby socks, saddle oxfords, scarves, Letterman jackets, and etc.).  No one will soon forget the 50th day of the

2016-2017 school year!

Right to Know

 

The faculty and staff of OCPS work very hard to make sure your child has a high quality education. As a Title I school, we must meet federal regulations

related to teacher qualifications as defined in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). These regulations allow you to learn more about

the training and/or credentials of your child’s teacher. We are happy to provide this information for you. At any time, you may ask:

• Whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching,

• Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications are waived, and

• Which undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds, including certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of

concentration.

You may also ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your child receives assistance, we can provide you with information about the

paraprofessional’s qualifications.

I am pleased to report that Oglethorpe County Primary School is a Title I School and that 100% of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly qualified!

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. James-Robinson at 706-743-8194 or orobinson@oglethorpe.k12.ga.us
