Alt Text: Retro style flyer with orange and purple bubble font header that reads: "OEC Open House. Friday, August 27th, 1 PM to 3 PM." Purple body text is a bulleted list, reads as follows: "Meet the staff & say hello to your teachers! Learn about our academic and attendance goals and our vision for the year. Know our start time and end time and get your class schedule. Check out the annex building renovation. Pick up a staff contact sheet so you know who to go to for what. Pick up your transpass if you are eligible." On the bottom of the flyer, an orange, pink, and yellow cartoon backpack sits beside a purple box with text inside that says "Make sure to stop by the gym to pick up a free backpack loaded with school supplies. There's one for every student!"
