PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THESE UPCOMING IMPORTANT EVENTS:
School Picture Days
Encounter Conference Sign-up Deadline
Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
We are asking that parents make monthly/regular deposits to their family's lunch account rather than sending in pizza money each week. We will charge your account when pizza is ordered, and notify you when your balance is low. We receive 20-30 baggies of dollar bills and quarters each week, which is a lot of work to sort and deposit - and sometimes results in errors or missed credits to accounts.
Miss Mary and Mrs. VanDewerker thank you!
Picture Day order forms are going home with students today (1 per family). Everything you need to know is on the form, except: NO ELEMENTARY PE ON TUESDAY!

This year we are testing an online ticket option, so you could also share the link below to friends and family who would like to purchase "tickets" online.
Thank you so much for your help with this fundraiser. These events are only ever successful because we have such a supportive community of families. We look forward to dining with you on the 29th!
The Encounter Conference is a yearly regional youth conference for churches and youth ministries. Encounter is a three day conference (Nov 10-12) open to 7th-12th graders. Feedback from OCA students who attended this event last year was overwhelmingly positive, so we plan to take a group again this year.
We estimate the cost for the conference and lodging to be around $150, but this will depend on hotel availability and how many students attend. To help us plan, please let us know by Friday, September 23, if your student(s) plan to attend, by completing THIS ONLINE FORM. We will then provide a firm total cost per student.
Our 10th grade Bible class is organizing an Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection.
If you would like to participate, boxes can be picked up at OCA; however, your own shoebox will work just as well. The filled boxes must be at the school by November 14 to be delivered to the collection site on time.
If you would like to fill your own box, click HERE for more information.

Our goal is to reach 120 boxes. Thank you for helping us reach this goal!
We're sure you've noticed that Main Street is under construction. Please give yourself extra travel time, especially at drop-off time, as delays are inevitable for the duration of this project. The Otego community is grateful that these necessary improvements are being made, and we're sure the workers appreciate our patience.
