President’s Message

End of the year message…

As we leave this school year behind and head into summer I’d like to take a moment and congratulate our Sixth-grade graduates. Best wishes to all of you as you enter into your next chapter at RDMS.

Additionally, thank you to our parent volunteers of sixth graders who will be leaving us upon graduation. For some, you have given many years to the Oradell PTA and you deserve endless thanks and recognition for your years of service.

For new families entering OPS in September, we welcome you with open arms! Peruse our site; ask questions, sign up to volunteer…there are many opportunities for you to get involved.

Lunches will go on sale mid-August. For now, sign up to be included in the directory, purchase your school supplies, and simply enjoy the summer.

The Executive Committee will be busy planning for the new school year over the summer (we already have some new ideas)…

Play, read, swim, and enjoy the sunshine! See you all in September!

Jennifer Koth
PTA President

Help us connect our kids to our community

The OPS PTA would like to learn more about you…

Please consider taking our OPTIONAL parent survey.

In coordination with OPS administration, the OPS PTA has set up the following parent survey.  From this survey we hope to get a better understanding of what talents, skills and interests are hidden within the Oradell community.  After we collect submissions we will share the data with the school. From there we would look for ways to connect those skills to student programming and activities.

Participation in the survey, as well as any future activities, is completely optional.

Please consider filling out the survey and also sharing it with members of our community that might not actively read the PTA website.

We’re here to help…

The Oradell PTA’s special needs committee is working with the Oradell SEPAC…

to help families with parenting resources about learning disabilities, special services, and other important issues. Oradell SEPAC has launched a wonderful new website, which focuses on how to access extra help for students at OPS, including FAQs and various parent resources.

ORADELL SEPAC WEBSITE

In addition, the Oradell PTA maintains a special needs committee that is available to help address concerns both overlapping with SEPAC as well as what might be outside their focus areas: (ex: academic struggles, physical challenges, social and emotional needs, as well as allergies, gifted & talented options, etc…)

In general, we’re here to help.

To contact the PTA’s Special Needs Committee please email them directly at: specialneeds@oradellpta.org.
