Check back often for news, events and information from the Ohio Council of Community Schools.
OCCS has continued a partnership with the Valentine Theatre to provide OCCS-sponsored schools with exciting, professional performances in the heart of Downtown Toledo. We extend this opportunity to our virtual schools as well as Toledo-area brick-and-mortar schools.
Performances can include The Diary of Anne Frank, Velveteen Rabbit, and I Have a Dream.
Field trips to the Valentine Theatre give students an engaging experience they will never forget, with educational lessons as well as a greater understanding and appreciation for performing arts.
Teachers and students are encouraged to continue the conversation in the classroom. Study guides are provided by the Valentine Theatre and are available to teachers, students and parents wanting to obtain further value from the performances.
