If you have not already done so we encourage you to enroll your child in the full-day, tuition free opportunity available to your student. The voluntary pre-kindergarten program is available to any child age 4 (before September 1, 2017). Your student’s participation in a VPK program offered by SJCSD offers them early literacy skills achieved through an engaging curriculum that is taught by school district certified teachers. The Full day VPK Program is available at Osceola Elementary, Crookshank Elementary and The Webster School. Spaces are limited and the free full day program will fill up quickly.
For more information or to register please contact the Early Childhood Services Department at 547-8965. Please do not miss this opportunity!
Osceola’s Box Top Tournament
Osceola will have a Box Top collection competition beginning October 23rd and concluding on October 27th. Osceola’s top collector per grade level will be rewarded for their contributions to our school. Students will earn a “PAWsome” bracelet for each complete sheet turned in. Sheets must have student’s name, grade level, and teacher before being turned in to the office.
This year we will have quarterly competitions. Box Tops is one of our best fundraisers for our school and we want to continue that success this year.
Thank you for helping our school earn money with Box Tops!
