Grandparents Day

What started as an an in-house event in the 1990s on the stage in the OCS gym has evolved into a professional-level, multi-day drama performance featuring OCS first, second, third and fourth grade choruses and fifth-grade actors/singers in a full-length play performed on a real stage at Jack Howard Theatre in Monroe.grandparents through the years

In line with the OCS mission, the goal of the Grandparents Day program is always to nurture and grow our students’ God-given talents while encouraging them to shine the light that He placed inside them.

Through community performances and a special Grandparents Day production, each year's play shares a bit of hope in Jesus and gives God all the glory for the opportunity to share His light with the community.
