Student Body Representatives

(Instagram: @benandtaylorforprez)

Our mission is to unify the student body by listening, communicating, and facilitating the inclusion of all grades, conservatories, and students in order to strengthen and nourish the OCSA family. We want the entire student body to feel that they have a voice by being able to use our Feedback boxes. This will allow everyone’s voice to be heard when the Leadership class discusses goods and betters about major events. We also want to encourage the beautification of the OCSA campus by making it into a competition, known the the student body as “OCSA Sports.” The students who throw out the most trash by the end of the year will enter a trash throwing competition, where the winner will win a special prize. Another important aspect of OCSA culture is our desire to strive for academic excellence, which we will nourish with our study groups. Students will be able to rent tables for a specific class to study with their peers, so that they can get exchange knowledge with a plethora of people. We believe that these initiatives will help enhance the student body and make it more united, through all grades and conservatories.

We are working to empower the sophomore class by strengthening student bonds and promoting fun and creative ideas. We want to strengthening bonds not only within conservatories, but between all sophomore students. Ways we hope to achieve this is through: emphasizing conservatory events that often go unpromoted or overlooked, coordinating events that allow us to meet new people and help develop a more cohesive class, Encouraging collaboration in artistic projects. In addition, we hope to create the best OCSA atmosphere for sophomores. This includes: promoting a clean campus environment and a healthy, positive learning environment.

Freshmen Representatives

(Instagram: @paigeandarielle) Hey Everybody! As your freshman representatives, we have decided that our focus will be on bonding the students of 9th grade.

We plan to host one seasonal drive and create a singular, incomparable event that is agreed upon within our class of 2021.

Middle School Representatives

(Instagram: @vote.anika.and.isabel)

The Mission of our campaign is to make every middle schooler feel represented and connected across all grades and conservatories. We want the OCSA middle school community to feel like they have a voice in the decisions affecting them throughout  the school year.

We want to make every 7th and 8th grader feel represented by making #MSquad parties themed; such as a dance theme or an art theme. This will make the parties all about the students and their passions. Something else we want to do is have a yearbook signing party so everyone has a better opportunity to be connected all year long. The last thing we want to do is to let every student be able to vote for their voice. We will do this by letting the students vote on the theme's of the dance they want!
