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.
