President’s Message

Happy New Year!  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 begin 2015, please consider volunteering to assist one of our committees.  With 41 active committees, there’s always a chance to participate and make a contribution to your child’s experience at OPS.  Just 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, February 3rd 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.
