Need to check out information about student workers for Saturday? Look on the sidebar at "OCI Student Workers".

Want to know the details for the Invitational? Here they are:
This is OCI's big "SEND OFF" show, prior to leaving for Championships in Dayton next week! Admission for this day of fun performances is $10 for adults and $5 for students/seniors. All admissions and donations will go directly to help offset rising costs of traveling to Dayton. Concessions will be provided by and directly benefit the THS Band program. 

Hey parents! Want to help? Please email McKee with your offer! (and if you can't, no worries - many of you have been very helpful all year long.) 
Thanks to Lynn R, Linda E, Michelle W, Laurie W, Steve A, Tim G, Dave K, and Donna F for volunteering, and a HUGE thanks to Kathy and Jeff Reddicks for their advance help with the Pop Can Drive!
