Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning, Parents.

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, I want to express my appreciation to everyone involved with the Oostburg Community Education Foundation, as well as the large number of local businesses and individuals who generously support OCEF each year.  In the last year and a half, grants funded by OCEF have provided our students:
  • $250 of additional casual reading books for the freshmen English classrooms.
  • $317 for a classroom set of the book Night to expand the sophomore English curriculum.
  • $550 in new microscopes for our Biology and AP Biology students.
  • $1220 for second grade mentor texts for reading workshops.
  • $1200 for an upgraded computer system for the students who publish the Oh-Say.
  • $800 CNC tooling kit  for our technology students.
  • $2000 video editing computer station for our Flying Dutch Media students.
  • $1000 in novels to enhance our social studies curriculum for high school students.
  • $790 for two document cameras for 2nd grade classrooms.
  • $1645 for additional bikes for our physical education students

Many of the grants that have been funded by OCEF over the years have provided our students expanded learning opportunities that would not have existed without the hard work, commitment to education, and generosity of those who serve on the OCEF Board.  The OCEF Board deserves a lot of credit, but I think every member of that group would be quick to point out that the community support and generosity they receive is equally important to recognize.
Thank you to the following businesses and individuals who supported the OCEF Homecoming Raffle, and thanks to all of you who participated in the raffle. And, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  We have a lot to be thankful for in our lives.
Scott
