President’s Message

Welcome Summer! And welcome to our incoming OPS families!

Whether you are an incoming Kindergarten family or a new family moving into Oradell, I’d like to take a moment to welcome you to our school and community. On this site you will find information about joining the PTA, signing up to volunteer for committees, and ordering lunches come September.

Please bookmark this page as new information is posted frequently.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our board members or the Kindergarten/New Family Mentoring chairs as we would all be happy to assist you. You will begin receiving a weekly email in late August regarding lunch sign ups and other important information regarding the PTA and OPS. For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the long summer days!

Kindergarten/New Family Mentoring

Welcome to Oradell Public School!

The Oradell PTA warmly welcomes all kindergarten families and any families new to the school!

The purpose of the PTA mentoring 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, or just have a general question, please contact our mentoring committee chairs:
Jodi Rybak and Lauren Driscoll  at


Special Needs Committee

We’re here to help…

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.
