Breaking News:

March 30, 2016
Dear OACS Family,
I am writing this letter home to let you know that I will not be returning to OACS next year. I have loved my time with OACS and coming to this decision was a long and prayerful decision. My time here has been fantastic and being able to get to know each of you and your families has been a wonderful gift. Tiffani Sommerville will be returning as the 3rd-8th grade teacher next year insuring a level of consistency in instruction.

            As with all schools, this is a natural change that comes and I have all confidence that our school will continue in the same positive direction it has been going in for the last 
75 years – teaching children about the love of Jesus and offering top of the line education.

            The school board is working closely with the superintendents of education for the Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and they have some very good names in consideration. As soon as we get information we will pass it on to you! In the meantime please continue to share with your friends about our little Christian school here in the mountains! Big things happen here and will continue to happen!
Blessings,
Sonya Reaves
Principal/K-2 Teacher

Birthday Weekend

Hey friends,

You are cordially invited to my birthday weekend April 22-24. I'm planning a BIG weekend of festivities. Complete with a BOUNCE HOUSE!!! Who doesn't want a bounce house at their party!? I figure I should have a big, big, big party this year. Go big or go home ;)

Soooooo, please let me know if you are able to come. I've got housing options for you-some beds, couches, mattresses and other options! It's going to be a hoot and a holler.

The festivities will go something like this:

Friday:
Supper and vespers of baked potato bar around 6:30 pm
Hang out with friends until we sleep

Saturday:
Possibly church.
Yaystacks for lunch!
Adventure around Yosemite and outdoors!
THE BIG PARTY @ 6
Hobo Stew, glow sticks, bonfire, blankets, pillows and BOUNCE HOUSE!!!
Talking and visiting until the cows come home.

Sunday:
A long run (I'm training for a marathon after all)
Brunch at my favorite place in town for breakfast burritos!!
All my long distance friends can drive home (boooooo)

And that is my plan for my birthday weekend. Please do come. It will be all the better with you there.

Thanks!
I love ya'll!!

Sonya

ps. Give me your address and I'll send you an official invite.

Gone with the wind.

I'm going on an adventure to Cambodia. I leave in a few days. I'm crazy excited about it. It will be a whorl wind, crazier than my adventure to Australia last year.
