OCESD is hiring and having a fantastic Job Fair on Jan. 15 from 1-4 at the State Theater in downtown Oroville. I have three openings here at Ishi! Come join our team. I will help you apply! We look forward to meeting you soon.
Below is a flyer for free trauma-informed parent training from a wonderful educator who struggled with her own adopted children and was able to transform their lives. You will totally benefit from this training if you are struggling with your child's behavior due to trauma!
Please remember to COVID test prior to returning to school. If you or your student test positive, have any COVID-19 symptoms, and/or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please call us for the next steps BEFORE returning to school. Thank you!
November 5th will be Parent Teacher Conferences, no students.

If you haven't noticed from the heat, summer is in full swing.
We're hosting extended hours this summer M-F from 1:15-5 pm.
We've had many new students recently, mostly students going into the 6th grade that are now eligible to come to Axiom. It is honoring to see these new younger students be eager to be involved and take on opportunities at Axiom and jump right into building meaningful relationships with their peers and with the caring adults at Axiom.
We've added a few special weekly activities to keep the students engaged. We've done a challenge at the river, capture the flag at the park, lots of crafts with volunteer Melody, and are continuing in our weekly cooking classes, among other activities.
Also, the Oronaz Youth group is meeting weekly at the Forebay Aquatic Center. This time of fellowship and fun allows us to bring students to youth group in a low-pressure setting, giving them another opportunity to come to know Jesus.
Between youth group at the Forebay, our fun daily activities, and Summer Camp (11 of our Axiom students went to camp!), these students are experiencing a summer filled with hope, joy, and lots of love.
Thank you for supporting the Axiom!
Happy Classified School Employee Appreciation Week!

Wednesday, June OCESD 6-8th Distance Learning End of the Year Update
May 14, 2021
Dear Distance Learning Families:
The end of the school year is fast approaching and there is a lot happening in these next few weeks! This letter is intended to give you as much information as possible about upcoming events.
Last Day of School:
Distance Learning will end Friday, June 4th. All students are required to log on every day during the last week of school. Our DL schedule will remain the same the last week of school with one exception. Wednesday, June 2nd, 7th grade will need to log on and work ASYNCHRONOUSLY as all teachers will be attending the promotion ceremony for 8th grade.
Your student should have completed both the iReady Reading and iReady Math diagnostics as part of our end of year testing. These count for the state testing we normally do, so are extremely important for your student to complete. Please check with your student to be sure they have completed both.
Ice Cream Social:
All students who complete BOTH iReady Diagnostics are eligible to receive one sweet treat (ice cream or popsicle). Students who make growth on one or both diagnostics get an additional sweet treat, one per subject. Students are NOT eligible until they have completed BOTH diagnostics.
