President’s Message


As always, the bittersweet beginning of school takes a yeoman’s effort to keep up…but you’ve got this and the PTA is here to help!!

Here’s a couple of reminder items that will help us collectively get to October with as little breakage as possible. 🙂

✔️ Email blasts on Monday mornings list all PTA related activities for the coming month.  That email also has links to the community tab on the OPS website, to the day of the week calendar, to NM lunch and to everything else we could think of.  Use it as a resource and email the board if you have any questions!

🍕 PTA lunches will be available until the middle of the month and then there will be an add on period in the middle of December.  Please get your orders in before the deadline.

👕 The spirit wear team will have a VERY LIMITED WINDOW to order field day shirts.  Colors will come home in backpacks the first week of school.  Tshirt orders must be in by 9/13!

⏱️ If you plan to be on campus volunteering this year, you must have completed HIB training to do so.  Trainings are being offered on 9/10 at 9am, 9/22 at 2:30 and 9/12 at 6:30pm.  HIB training will also be offered at 7pm on 9/24 immediately before the PTA meeting.

🌞 Our first PTA meeting will be on September 24th at 7:30 in the OPS Auditorium.  If you are looking for information about other 2019-2020 events please see our calendar as all anticipated events have been posted.

🐾 As always, please reach out to our executive team with any questions.

See you at the back to school breakfast and remember – you’ve got this.

OPS PTA President

Nicholas Markets lunches!

You say you don’t want to make lunch on Monday or Tuesday or Thursday or Friday?! 

Introducing Nicholas Markets to OPSWhen will it run? All year long on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursays and Fridays.

How do I order?  After setting up your account, ordering is done direct through their website www.nmlunch.com up to midnight the evening before.  Returning families please see THIS FLIER HERE which helps answer questions about your first login for 2019-2020

What about nutritional content? The NMLunch menu is also produced with a strong emphasis on nutritional content.  Ingredients and nutritional facts are all available online.

I have allergy concerns? This program has a very sophisiticated ordering process which is sensitive to allergy concerns. When you sign up you can indicate allergies and the menu dynamically adjusts to limit what can be purchased for or by that student.

What if I forgot to send lunch? Nicholas Markets offers the ability for your child to purchase a lunch from a limited ‘I forgot my lunch’ menu. SEE MORE HERE

What if my child is still hungry? NMLunch offers the ability for your child to purchase add on items and snacks during lunch (you have to opt into this day of purchasing feature)

What’s new with NM Lunch for 2019?  Glad you asked – check this flier HERE.


Got Questions? Email anyone on the executive board and we would be happy to help.
