Students and staff celebrated a day of school spirit on Friday, October 31.  This month's theme for OSCARbration was "Pumpkin Time".  Students decorated pumpkins, read stories about pumpkins and Halloween, worked on spooky math activities, and were delighted with the chance to wear wacky outfits for the day. 

We are building a culture of excellence at Oscar J. Pope Elementary, and every student counts!
