President’s Message

Happy Spring!  The Oradell PTA is pleased to welcome you to our website, where you can find the latest and greatest in PTA news, programs and sign ups.  Just scroll below to see links to open sign ups and announcements of current programs and activities.

As we close the 2014-2015 school year, please consider volunteering to chair or assist one of our many committees for next year.  With 41 active committees, there’s always a chance to participate and make a contribution to your child’s experience at OPS.  If you are interested in chairing a committee, please scroll below to check out the list of available positions.  Our goal is to fill the committee chair positions for the 2015-2016 school year this spring.  Or you can simply click the “volunteer” tab above and select programs or events which fit with your schedule and interests.  It is because of the strong volunteer efforts of our parents and the dedication of our teachers that the Oradell PTA is able to sponsor so many wonderful programs and activities.

Please join us at our next PTA meeting on Tuesday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the OPS auditorium.  If you have any questions or ideas you would like to share, please feel free to contact me at jenlarson141@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.
