Talent Show Volunteers

Parent volunteers are needed to help with our upcoming Elementary Talent Show! Volunteers would be previewing video submissions, communicating with parents of students with video submissions, and planning the agenda for the talent show days. If you are interested in helping with this fun event, please contact Mrs. Mendenhall at smendenhall@oaklandchristian.com. We anticipate this volunteer opportunity will entail about 5 volunteer hours, and most of the work can be completed at home.

Required Family Services Hours Due by April 30th

There are so many ways for families to get involved and make a difference at  Oakland Christian School. Parental efforts support the energies of the faculty and staff and enable them to keep their focus on the quality of our educational program.  Volunteering also gives your family a way to become more fully connected in the school community and helps your child see your own commitment to quality education. 

Since parental involvement and support of Oakland Christian is a very important aspect of our school, each family at OCS is required to participate in the Family Service Hour Program. Families in JK – 12th grade must complete 20 family service hours per school year. For each school year, the service hour program begins on May 1 and ends on April 30th. A $20 fee will be charged for every hour not completed.
