Student Body Co-Presidents

We strive to support and advocate for our student body in an effort to create a campus that every student can call home. Our goals are  to showcasing student art and community outreach. Student art will be shown by implementing a project that allows student art to be showcased on the Tower stairs, similar to the Koi Fish on the DMS stairs. Community outreach will be executed by creating a virtual market place, similar to Winter Market, and donating the proceeds to an organization of students’ choice.

Middle School Representatives

The mission of our campaign is to “pep up” school spirit and culture with interactive events so we can energize middle schoolers and create stronger friendships between them.

Goals: 

1. Ice Cream Social 

Middle schoolers gather in the quad during a time and day to be determined, to socialize while enjoying ice cream and music. This gives 7th and 8th graders a chance to meet new people, build stronger relationships, and make lasting memories. 

 

2.“Field Day”  Interactive outdoor games/ events

Varied interactive games will be held during the school year in the quad.  Games such as Ring Toss,  Egg and Spoon Race, Drop and Pop Relay (sit on a chair to pop a balloon) and other games to be determined, will be organized for the students to play together. 

 

3. Walk out of Poverty Community Service 

   This is a community service opportunity where students can walk together and join charity organization Concern America in the Walk Out of Poverty event and walk in support of a globally-focused community support organization. We contacted the Executive Director of Concern America and they would be happy to collaborate with our students.

Freshman Representatives

This year we would like to bring together our class through virtual social events. Eventually we plan on gathering our freshman class together through bonfires, a mercy house sock drive, and many online events. Since there are so many incoming students we would like for everyone to get to know each other by bonding through these events. Although we don’t know what the future holds, we know that we will create a great freshman experience for the class of 2024. We can’t wait to have  a great year with everyone!

Sophomore Representatives

As Sophomore Representatives, we would love to bring more students together through virtual social events. Many students are still strangers due to the size of our school, and this would be a great opportunity to make our community closer. Sophomores are introduced to more strenuous classes such as APs and weighted classes this year, therefore we would love to provide more fun events to make our sophomore year more memorable. We want to support the class of 2023 and relieve students from the stress of the school year.  We would like to make this year run as smoothly as possible so students feel ready for their final years at OCSA.

Goals:

Virtual hangouts 

Virtually meet with other sophomores through discord or zoom and playing games like scribble.io, among us, and/or other online games.

 

Volunteer opportunities 

Providing more opportunities for volunteer hours to build up resumes for college applications 

Online volunteer opportunities will be the focus 

 

Fundraiser

Donate children toys for Operation Christmas Child (This is a christian organisation, if religious fundraisers/organisations are not allowed we will find another. We can have another sign up genius

Recycling to help the environment and fundraise 

The fundraisers that help raise money for the sophomore class of 2023 will go to social event

Junior Representatives

Our mission is to unite our junior class in efforts to do good in the world and do well later on in life through community service opportunities, information, and resources to begin the college application process. 

Our goals for this year:

  1. Create a website that acts as an easy way to access junior-specific information including, scholarship opportunities, school updates, and student shoutouts to highlight the amazing things our peers are doing.

  2. Hold a backpack donation drive where juniors will have the opportunity to donate school supplies so we can help underfunded schools together. 

  3. Put on an ice cream social at the end of the year (when it is safe) to applaud students for their hard work throughout this unique school year and make our grade feel connected. We want to include dairy-free options to keep this event inclusive.

Senior Representatives

We aim to promote wellness, fun, and connection within the senior class during their last year at OCSA. Through the events we host, we hope to create memories that the seniors can carry on with them after they graduate. Besides working to deliver on each of our platform ideas, we want to be able to amplify the voices of the senior class to best represent them. Furthermore, we will use our platform to promote senior related opportunities and important information to keep the senior class up to date.
