    Woo-Hoo! Way to go OCE! The first Wednesday of every month OCE hosts the "Walking School Bus," which encourages all students to walk to work. This school has been making a great effort at being environmentally conscientious, and with VERY few bike lanes in Apex, it's so it's nice to see the school get this funding!
