  • Class of 2022 ACT and PSAT

    Students in the Class of 2022 have a couple of important exams coming up in January and February 2021. In January, all juniors will take the PAST/NMSQT. This is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Students can earn several scholarships directly from the results of this test!

    February 2021 will mark the statewide administration of the ACT to all North Carolina juniors. It is a mandatory test that is used both for state accountability and college admissions. This is a very important test for college admissions, so students should spend time preparing! Many institutional and private scholarships are partly based on the results as well!


    Juniors have been working on test preparation in Seminar this semester. They also have access to ACT Academy as well as several authentic ACT practice exams. Please encourage and remind your junior student(s) to study and practice!

  • School Cash Online

    • SchoolCashOnline Family

      Given the ongoing concerns over COVID-19, OCS continues to look for ways to improve convenience for our families and institute practices which will reduce the risk of transmission of the virus. To do this, the district will be providing our school community the option of a new online payment system, School Cash Online. This system will minimize cash and check payments at our schools and allow parents to make online payments from home.

      Through School Cash Online, parents can pay registration fees, course fees, field trips, yearbooks, spirit wear, athletic fees and more!

      Parents who use School Cash Online have the ability to:

      • Keep track of their child's school items and activity fees.
      • Stay connected by receiving email notifications of new fees.
      • Check their account history.
      • View and print receipts.
      • Pay for school fees any time, anywhere, with a simple click.
      • Easily link and access all students in a household.
      • Make payments using Visa or Mastercard.

      Click here School Cash Online to pay your child's fees online! 

      The School Cash Online service will not replace the current system we have in place to prepay for your student's meal accounts. Pre-Payment for student meal accounts can be made here (link opens in a new window): Student Meal Account Pre-Payment Options

  • Class Rings

    school ring

    Ring order information from Jostens was sent home via The Owl back in early March. Mr. Overby (Jostens representative) also met with any students at lunch (in early March) that wanted more information. Unfortunately, everyone had the stay-at-home order from the Governor before we could accept paper order forms. Those that ordered online were still able to order class rings.

    Jostens has opened their link to our school's ordering site, so students can order class rings again. Click here to order! Hopefully, Mr. Overby will be able to make an in-person visit later in the school year. In the meantime, the Jostens office is open for business 9:00-4:00 (Monday through Friday) to answer questions that kids and families may have. Their office number is 910-675-3886.

    You can go to our school's class ring store site below and order online. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks for the ring to be shipped to your house. Remember, this is optional, but we wanted to make it possible for students that would like to have a class ring!
