Kindergarten/New Family Mentoring

Kindergarten Mentoring is a PTA program available to new Kindergarten parents or any parent new to the school. The purpose of the program is to help you through your first year at OPS. We can assign you a mentor whom you can call with any questions relating to Kindergarten, PTA related topics or general OPS information.


If you are interested in having a mentor please contact:

Carly Byrnes – Carlybyrnes@gmail.com

Special Needs Committee

Please contact the Special Needs Committee for questions regarding ANY special needs you may have (ex: allergies, academic struggles, physical challenges, social and emotional needs, the needs of the gifted & talented, etc…).  Additionally, this would be the place for anyone who feels that they can offer their own experience and wants to be on our MENTOR list to say, “it’s okay to contact me if someone has a question about…. ”  We will be a liaison between the person with the question and the right resource for getting their questions answered.
